After a long weekend when perhaps a quarter-million people enjoyed the novel sight of old-fashioned tall ships in Duluth Harbor and Lake Superior, the remaining ship watchers gathered near the water Monday to see the ships off to their next destination.
Nine tall ships will set sail from Duluth today, and they’ll continue to turn heads even as they depart. The five-day festival drew more than 200,000 people to the city’s waterfront, according to Terry Mattson, CEO of Visit Duluth.
The schooner Peacemaker isn’t your typical tall ship. It’s a nautical outgrowth of Twelve Tribes; small communities around the world who live simply and together follow the teachings of Yahshua — the Hebrew name for Jesus.

SAM COOK: What is it about these tall ships? What is it about them that swells our little city to twice its size with visitors? What, exactly, gets up inside of us when we see one of those elegant vessels and all of that cloth sliding under our Aerial Lift Bridge?
They’ll be the stars of a grand parade this afternoon: tall ships, nine of them, looking like something out of a “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie and turning the Duluth-Superior Harbor and our waterfront areas into congestion and celebration central.
