Tall Ships Event Underway

Hundreds of thousands of people are flocking to the shore, ready to experience the beauty and majesty of the tall ships first-hand. Events for the Pepsi America's Sail 2006 are underway in Morehead City and Beaufort.

Tall ships are gracing the seas along the Crystal Coast. From small to massive, we toured nearly every tall ship Friday, gorgeous ships from all over the U.S. and Brazil. We were amazed at the Virginia, it's the second largest of what you'll see at the event. It's a replica of the original Schooner Virginia, from 1917.
