DAY'S RUN From ASTA's Seabag The German square rigger Gorch Fock visits the US Coast this autumn to honor "300 Years of German Immigration to the United States of America." She'll be in San Juan , Puerto Rico September 2-6 ; Norfolk , Virginia-September 16-0ctober 3; Philadelphia , Pennsylvania- October 5-10; and Portsmouth , New Hampshire October 14-18.... Portsmouth , New Hampshire is a busy port for Tall Ships visits this year. Simon Bolivar, Venezuelan Navy training ship, paid a return visit during the summer in honor of her stop there during her maiden voyage in 1981. ...The Coast Guard bark Eagle has a new commanding officer. CDR Ernst M. Cummings, USCG, has relieved CAPT Martin J. Moynihan . Eagle is scheduled to visit Narragansett Bay during the America's Cup Races in September. Cisne Branco stopped in Newport during late May and early June to have some renovation work done. We at ASTA were pleased to have this chance to renew acquaintances with our friends from the Brazilian Naval Academy who participated in the entire Western Hemisphere Tall Ships series last year, flying like the wind from start to finish of each race ... .Black Pearl , ASTA's flagship, donated by Barclay Warburton shortly before his death , is now

moored in the Boat Basin at Fort Adams with a skilled seaman/carpenter on board as her port captain. She is gradually being restored to top condition , and will move to Bowen's Wharf on the Newport waterfront in the fall. ASTA members and friends are invited to pay a visit to her when they are in the area ... .Once again, members of the international Tall Ships fleet-Sorlandet Inca , and Marques this time-have been prevented from providing sail training opportunities to American youth because of regulations and red tape of various sorts. To minimize such disappointments is an urgent and vital goal of ASTA and of the Sailing School Vessels Council (former Council of Educational Shipowners).
