A big announcement made for the Brig Niagara today. She will be joining once again as part of the Tall Ships hitting the bay this August.
Erie Insurance is helping to sponsor the event and a scholarship for 20 students to take part in the summer voyage. The vessel, among other ships, will be sailing across the great lakes representing Erie Insurance and Erie.
Director of Tall Ships Erin Short says, “by having sponsors like Erie Insurance it does help preserve the history of the tall ships. It brings people down to the waterfront to remind people of the maritime history of the Great Lakes was pretty impressive.”
If you decided you would like to join the crew during her voyage, you will be doing everything the crew is doing from steering the ship to standing lookout.
