Weekend - 2006 Godspeed Sail

Explore a sampling of 17th-century America aboard Godspeed, a newly commissioned replica of one of the three original ships that in 1607 brought America's first permanent English colonists to Jamestown!

Godspeed has been port hopping along the east coast all summer, throwing a "Landing Party Festival" - featuring live musical performances, family entertainment, historical and cultural displays highlighting the legacies of Jamestown and the growth of America -- all free to the public, at each port.

It's final stop before returning to Virginia is this week (it already started) and lasts through this weekend in Newport, RI.

Once again, all events are FREE, so if you're anywhere near Rhode Island this weekend you should definitely check this out!
