4th Experience: Nina & Pinta in Bridgeport

by LonSeidman

The most historically accurate Niña ever built, accompanied by her larger and younger sister ship, the Pinta, tied up Thursday at Captain’s Cove in Bridgeport. The two tall ships are open for tours through Monday. This is the Niña’s fourth visit to Captain’s Cove – the last time was in 2007.

“This is the first time the Pinta has been in your fair city,” said Capt. Morgan Sanger, who commands the Niña, which like the Pinta, was built in Valenca, Brazil. The Niña was completed in 1991, the Pinta in 2005.
