How many historic ships on average are part of the festival?  I mean this in terms of presence, tours, mock battles, sail outings, etc.

In the past there have been 6 or 7 tallships, tho the Pilgrim doesnt leave her mooring.

Pilgrim, Spirit of Dana Point, Exy and Irving Johnson, American Pride, Curlew and the Bill of Rights. it varies a bit each year.

I believe they sell tickets for sails on 3 to 4 ships each day, best to get them early, they sell out fast.

There is also a skit on the Brig Pilgrim "The Taking of Blackbeard" with pyrates boarding the ship, black powder

and cannons and some mock swordfights. Food, music, beer and lots of vendors. Ocean insititue is open and the ships are open for tours also
