columbus ships sail past tybeeNext week will bring a special treat as the Columbus Ships sail past Tybee up the Savannah River to port.  On Tuesday, March 24, the ‘Pinta’ and the ‘Nina,’ replicas of Columbus’ Ships, will open for visitors in Savannah. The ships will be docked at Rousakis Riverfront Plaza the rest of the week through early Monday morning March 30.  The ‘Nina’ was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools.  Archaeology magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.” The “Pinta” was recently built in Brazil to accompany the Nina on all of her travels. She is a larger version of the archetypal caravel sailing vessel. Historians consider the caravel the Space Shuttle of the fifteenth century. Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced ‘sailing museum’ for the purpose of educating the public and school children on the ‘caravel,’ a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers to discover the world. While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour.
