The tall ships are sailing into the Crystal Coast and the communities are preparing for hundreds of thousands of visitors to descend on the Beaufort and Morehead City waterfronts. Several of the tall ships participating in America's Sail are already docked at the waterfront in Beaufort and Morehead City. The ships come from all over the country and in the case of one vessel, the world. In all, 13 tall ships are planned to dock at both ports. Visitors to the tall ships event can see the sail boats up close and ask crew members questions. Beaufort and Morehead City were chosen to host the event two years ago. You can view the tall ships starting Friday June 30 until Wednesday July 5.
