OpSail Kicks Off in New York on Wednesday

Operation Sail and Fleet Week are almost upon New York, and boating fans will want to head to the city's harbors starting May 23 to see the international flotilla and to kick off OpSail 2012 and Fleet Week.

The vessels—17 tall ships and 10 warships—will assemble at piers in Staten Island, Manhattan and Brooklyn, city tourism website NYCGo is reporting. OpSail’s lineup will commemorate the War of 1812 and the writing of the United States national anthem.

Visitors can watch these vessels sail into New York at several locations: Intrepid Piers at West 46th Street, Port Authority Piers in Brooklyn and The Sullivans Pier at Staten Island. Classic Harbor Line will also be offering spectator cruises.
