Port Townsend – : Europa – to visit today

PORT TOWNSEND — The city will look like the Victorian seaport it was 100 years ago when a tall ship pulls into Union Wharf today.

The Europa, a 185-foot bark built in Amsterdam, will pull in sometime between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. before heading to Seattle on Wednesday morning for the American Sail Training Association’s 2002 Tall Ships Challenge race.

“It’s a great opportunity to view the waterfront as it was in its heyday,” city Marketing Director Nancy Borino said Monday. “This ship represents the end of the famous clipper era.”

The Europa, built in 1911, will be closed to tours.
