Pride of Baltimore

Pride of Baltimore II was commissioned in 1988 as a sailing memorial to her immediate predecessor, the original Pride of Baltimore. Both ships were built in the Inner Harbor as reproductions of 1812-era topsail schooners, the type of vessels, called Baltimore Clippers, that helped America win the War of 1812 and finally secure its freedom. Since her commissioning, Pride II has sailed nearly 200,000 miles, and visited over 200 ports in 40 countries in North, South, and Central America, Europe, and Asia.

School

“Pride on the Chesapeake” is Pride of Baltimore’s experiential education program under sail, designed to align with Maryland Voluntary State Curriculum. The half-day (two to four hour) underway experience engages sixth through tenth graders in a combination of science, technology, engineering, math, and history (STEM+H.) The vessel can accommodate 30 participants at a time (including students, teachers, and chaperones) and can depart from a number of docks throughout the Chesapeake Bay, including the Baltimore harbor.

We also have the ability to extend the experience to 60 participants through partnerships with a number of shore-side facilities, including Fort McHenry National Monument and Shrine, Fells Point Preservation Society, and the United States Naval Academy. The application of hands-on activities, such as setting sail and steering the ship, as well as well as contemplative activities, such as comparing hull models of a Baltimore clipper to a 19th century cargo ship, makes this program unique, even in a region that is home to many other high caliber programs.

supports classroom learning in:
Social Studies, STEM

topics covered:
Maryland’s War of 1812, Privateer Sailors, Study of Chesapeake Bay.

Boat Excursion Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Did you know a boat can be built out of concrete and it will still float? As long as the boat is lighter than the water it displaces, it will stay above water. And what makes a boat move through the water? Throughout history, boats have been powered by wind, propellers, oars, motors, paddles, and ocean and river currents. Sailboats, which have been around for 5,000 years, can reach speeds of over 47 knots (about 54 mph) from wind power alone!
