OCEAN CITY – The tall ship El Galeon departed Ocean City this week, leaving many good memories behind in its wake.
The El Galeon arrived in Ocean City on Wednesday, Aug. 21, and before it made its departure early Tuesday morning, city officials presented the tall ship’s crew with a Key to the City. The Galeon’s next stop is Puerto Rico where it will reportedly be used in a NBC miniseries called Crossbones, featuring John Malkovich as the legendary Blackbeard.
“We had between 14,000 and 15,000 people visit the ship area. We thank the Town of Ocean City and the Nao Victoria Foundation for making this event such a success in such a short time,” said Bryan Lilley, president of the National, Sea, Air & Space Foundation.
