Sail the Brig Niagara this Summer

Niagar Put in BayLive the life of 19th-century Lake Erie sailing through the Niagara Sail Trainee Program offered by the Flagship Niagara Organization.  Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 summer season.  For complete details visit the sailing program Web site!  Or, if you prefer, come aboard for a day sail.  The home port (Erie, Pennsylvania) is the location of the Erie Maritime Museum, where “Historical artifacts, interactive exhibits, and dramatic videos bring the battle and the age of fighting sail to life. Other exhibits tell the stories of the USS Michigan/Wolverine (the Navy’s first iron-hulled ship), Erie’s three lighthouses, fishing, and other maritime industries.”
