The Denis Sullivan

As the 2013 Tall Ships Festival draws near, vessels from around the world are making their way westward along the Great Lakes toward their port destination of Duluth for the weekend event. See where the ships are with an interactive map after the jump.

Many of the ships have been checking in with SailWX, a website that tracks sailing conditions and locations of certain watercraft; including many of the tall ships coming into port this weekend.
