Three Ships in Newport

Tall Ships Rhode Island 2007 hosted ships from as far away as Indonesia and India and as close as Salem and Providence. Pictured here are the Barquentine 'Dewa Ruci' from the Navy of Indonesia on the left, the Sloop 'Providence' (center) from the Rhode Island capital and the 171-foot 'Friendship' completed in 1998 as a replica of a 1797 Salem East Indiaman.

The 2008 ASTA Tall Ships Challenge Series will be sailed on the west coast this summer. Visit www.sailtraining.org for more details.
