Tall ships at The 2008 Maritime Festival in Charleston, SC.  On the dock of the Maritime Center, on the Charleston Harbor, see over a dozen tall ships setting sail along with The Spirit of South Carolina to race Sunday from
Charleston to Bermuda.  This race is also known as the C2B...make sense? Ship tours start at 10 each morning and end at 5 in the evening.  On the lawns of the Maritime Center one can graze through many maritime exhibits, live music, wooden boats and more.

The whole family can get involved at The 2008 Maritime Festival.  Walk a few feet from the Charleston Maritime Center to experience what Charleston South Carolina's taverns, bars, and restaurants have to offer.
