This iReport is part of an assignment:
What was your best moment of 2012?
The Tall Ships
Historic vessels arrived from all over the world to take part in the three day festival, including the HMS Bounty which would sink after failing to escape the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy in early November.
"I was born in Providence. Rhode Island and Newport and it['s] ships have always held my interest," she says, "[but] this was the first time that I had the opportunity to explore them and talk to the crew."
"Each ship [had] a story of its own to tell. This was a highlight of 2012 for me."
