The 72-foot tall Schooner Jeanie B. is docked at the Washington waterfront.

The tall ship sailed up the Pamlico River and arrived just before five Wednesday afternoon.

On Thursday and Friday, the vessel will be offering free tours from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. On Saturday, the Jeanie B. will be offering free sailings from the docks of the City of Washington.

After this arrival celebration, the schooner will make Washington her permanent home and be available for corporate, family or group sailings throughout the year.

    I am surprised the dock-master let him pull up to the dock. Its a shame local taxpayers can't use the waterfront docks anymore.

      Really? What happened/changed? Did the 24/48/72 hour rule (or whatever length of time it was....) change?

      You are so right about this Mike,we pay taxes for the rich and to use this area,as usual there are so many people that will not stand up to this one way street because they are afraid of some type of retaliation from the higher ups!People need to stand up against this way of old and fight back for what is our god giving right to use!

    We are so excited to see her come in. My son, Charles will be a crew member on her. She is a beautiful schooner and I look forward to see her in person!

    Hopefully the Wildlife/coast guard will stop this boat every time they see it and check for lifejackets. That's what they do with my boat and I only hope they treat this one the exact same, welcoming way.
