SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Maritime Museum's annual Festival of Sail will begin Friday with a parade of a dozen tall ships, which will be visible around San Diego Bay.
A Navy ship will lead about a dozen windjammers in procession into San Diego Bay. They'll be joined by ocean-going, Polynesian double-hulled canoes called "Vaka Moana" of the Pacific Voyagers, who are sailing on a 15,000-mile journey across the Pacific Ocean.
The Pacific Voyagers consist of sailors from the Cook Islands, Fiji, New Zealand, Samoa, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Vanuatu and Tonga.
About 20 ships will be open for tours through the weekend, and there will be live entertainment along North Harbor Drive by the Star of India, headlined by singer Eve Selis.
The ships will also take part in mock sea warfare with cannon battles.
