Re: I saw the USS Constitution under sail!

We also see the Constitution at least once a week, since she's docked two piers over from the Courageous Sailing Center. But we did get to see her on the water last week as well. We saw her sailing from about a mile away, saw the 21 gun salute off Castle Island/Fort Independence from about half a mile away, and then she overtook us on the way back to the pier.

They take her out and turn her around every July 4, but this was a special event to commemorate the 200th anniversary of her first battle.

Re: I saw the USS Constitution under sail!

She's done a lot for our country, more than most of us have. She paid her dues and deserves a nice cush life.

Would I like to see her under sail more often? Heck yeah! But I also want her around for future generations to see and experience.
