Tall Ships Ship Out

After six days in the Northland, the majority of the Tall Ships are gone with the wind.

The Tall Ships attracted nearly a quarter of a million visitors to Canal Park while they were here.

The 3-masted schooner "Bounty" hit the open waters yesterday.
The other vessels sailed under the aerial lift bridge this morning getting ready for the next stage of the tall ship challenge to Green Bay.

Duluth officials say visitors to the ships spent more than 15 million dollars at area hotels, restaurants and shops.

Plans are already underway to host another Tall Ships festival in the future.
