WOODEN WHALING SHIP LEAVING BOSTON, BOUND FOR BUZZARDS BAY

The Charles W. Morgan is slated to travel from Boston to the Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay, Mass., on Wednesday, where it will take part in the centennial celebration of the opening of the Cape Cod Canal.

The world's last surviving wooden whaling ship is slated to be towed through the canal at approximately 6 p.m. Wednesday.

If there is a delay because of weather, the change will be posted at www.mysticseaport.org.

The 173-year-old Morgan will dock at the academy and be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday.

After a more than five-year restoration, the Morgan is nearing the end of its tour of historic New England that began last month in New London.

It has also visited Newport, R.I., Vineyard Haven, Mass., New Bedford, Mass., the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, and Boston, where it tied up next to the USS Constitution.

The Morgan is slated to return to Mystic Seaport Aug. 9.
