Tall ship Lynx sails into St. Petersburg

- The billowing sails of the Lynx passed under the Sunshine Skyway Bridge this morning as the tall ship returned to her winter home.

The 122-foot-long ship is an exact replica of a ship that was used during the War of 1812.  She's based in Nantucket, but sails south to St. Pete each year.

For the next few weeks, the Lynx will be docked at Harborage Marina.  Tickets are available for tours and sailing.
