In 1977, the original Pride of Baltimore vessel was commissioned and sailed more than 150,000 nautical miles before unfortunately sinking in 1986 after an accident. Following an outpour of public support, it was decided that a new replacement boat would be built. It was named Pride of Baltimore II and has been sailing ever since. It has visited more than 200 ports in 40 countries and has recorded over 250,000 nautical miles. Every year, thousands of people are welcomed aboard the ship for private sailing charters, receptions, tours, day trips, youth programs, and overnight guest crew experiences.
Last summer, the Pride of Baltimore II embarked on the 2019 Tall Ships Challenge. This year, the event toured the Great Lakes across Canada and the United States, it assembles several “tall ships” and attracts crowds in several cities to witness these beautiful boats.
TIMEZERO is a proud partner of the Pride of Baltimore that was equipped with our TZ Professional software during this summer’s challenge. We caught up with Senior Captain Jan C. Miles to ask him a few questions about his experience with our solution.
