The Gazela is one of the ships that will be on hand at the Tall Ships Festival.
Eric Lorgus, president of the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild, says it’s time for some serious work on the Gazela, and the only way to do that is to lift her out of the water.
Philadelphia’s tall ship, the Gazela, needs some repairs and that’s proving to be a tall order.
It had been called “Philadelphia’s unofficial tall ship,” but now she is official, thanks to Councilman David Oh.
There are concerts, workshops, and performances on deck, and it’s all to raise money for the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild.
