The week of June 7 through 10, 2012, the Port of Virginia will once again host an impressive fleet of tall ships, navy and military war ships representing the world. OpSail 2012 Virginia is planned to illuminate the community with spectacle and festivity, and will place our Commonwealth front and center on the world stage. Our region is only one of five that these ships will visit during summer of 2012.
Mark your calendars for the above dates. During that time frame, the OPCYC fleet will be presented with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to actively participate in one of the grandest parades of tall ships and military ships ever assembled to mark the bicentennial of the War of 1812. OPCYC member Mark Radler and Training Captain Dick Beaver are working with event organizers to develop a full program of water and land events for the club. There will be more details forthcoming as we learn more about this special event.
