Goodspeed Tall Ship Sets Sail this Fall

The Godspeed is embarking on two voyages this fall, to Lancaster County in October and Urbanna in November.

The ship, a re-creation of one of the three vessels that brought America’s first permanent English colonists to America in 1607, will be docked at Yankee Point Marina on the Corrotoman River in Lancaster County Oct. 8-10.  The ship will be open for free public tours 3-5 p.m., and will participate in Lancaster County’s Hospice Turkey Shoot Regatta on the Rappahannock River Oct. 9-10.

In November the Godspeed is a featured exhibit at the Urbanna Oyster Festival, where it will be open for free public tours at the Urbanna Town Marina 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Nov. 5-6.  The ship will host students from Middlesex County public schools and area private schools on Nov. 4.

The Godspeed sails from Jamestown Settlement Oct. 5, returning in mid October. Departure for Urbanna is Nov. 1. During it absences Jamestown Settlement visitors will have access to the Susan Constant and Discovery, and the Elizabeth, representing a ship that made several voyages to Virginia between 1613 and 1625.
