Description : The NC Azalea Festival Visiting Ships in downtown Wilmington, NC, features the celebrated War of 1812 privateer square top sail schooner, Lynx, which has arrived on the East Coast from Hawaii and California and is scheduled for a five-year mission along the East Coast of the United States and Canada to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the Star-Spangled Banner. The Lynx crew wear period dress and operate the ship in keeping with the maritime traditions of early 19th century America. Also docking on the Cape Fear River will be the 210-foot Coast Guard cutter Diligence.
