New London Farewell Ceremony for the CHARLES W. MORGAN
June 13, 2014
Join us Friday, June 13, at City Pier in New London as we bid the Charles W. Morgan bon voyage. A brief ceremony will be hosted next to the ship at 1 p.m. to wish the ship and crew farewell and a safe and successful journey. In attendance at the farewell ceremony will be Mystic Seaport President Steve White, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Rep. Joe Courtney, and the director of NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, Dan Basta.
The Morgan will leave New London, CT for Newport, RI on Sunday, June 15, at 6:30 a.m.
Sailing for Newport is the culmination of a tremendous amount of work by Mystic Seaport staff, volunteers, and the community. Many have contributed to making the 38th Voyage a reality and we hope you can join us this Friday to give the ship a proper send off.
