BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) — A fleet of tall ships is stopping in Bay City as part of an effort to draw attention to Great Lakes conservation.
The Great Lakes United Tall Ships Challenge is scheduled to be in the city along the Saginaw Bay from Thursday through Sunday. It's one of six stops scheduled for this summer at Great Lakes port cities.
Earlier stops included Toronto and Cleveland. Organizers say stops are planned in Duluth, Minn.; Green Bay, Wis.; and Chicago.
The event is a partnership between the U.S.-Canadian advocacy group Great Lakes United and the American Sail Training Association.
