The Sloop "Providence"

This was one of the ships visiting here for a couple of days. She departed to the sound of cannon fire but was unseen as she moved off in heavy fog.

This traditionally rigged replica of John Paul Jones' first command is 110 feet in length and carries 12 small cannons. She was responsible for the destruction or capture of 40 British vessels during the American Revolutionary War
