They came, they sailed and they conquered.
The tall ships sailed out of Green Bay today after being here for the weekend.
Thousands of people came out to see the ships – which started arriving Thursday afternoon.
Because of the crowds— many had to be patient for a chance to view the ships up close – but eventually all got to board some of the historic sea vessels.
People who attended the festival say it was like watching history unfold – in front of their very eyes.
