Come See The Tall Ship

Come and see the tall ship Welcome docked here for the next few weeks. This sloop is a replica of the original sloop Welcome that was used by the British to relocate from Mackinaw City to Mackinac Island in 1780. The Welcome made several voyages from mainland to island until sinking in 1781. The Welcome is believed to be resting on the floor of the Straits of Mackinac. All of the journals of the voyages are still in tack and are archived.
Tours are available this weekend as are sails. This is an incredible piece of history to revisit. I think I will go aboard this weekend.
