The Annapolis Maritime Museum will present the second lecture in a series of ten presentations for their AMM Winter Lecture Series. 

Captain Miles will highlight his experiences over the years sailing both Pride of Baltimore schooners as part of an international community of tall ships. He will describe the role that Pride of Baltimore II continues to have in raising awareness of the role of Baltimore Clippers as privateers in the war of 1812, leading the British to attack Baltimore and Francis Scott Key to write the Star Spangled Banner.  

Since 1981, Jan C. Miles has served as a captain of the reproduction Baltimore Clippers Pride of Baltimore and Pride of Baltimore II for the not-for-profit company Pride of Baltimore, Inc.  Captain Miles has sailed these topsail schooners as far east as                 St. Petersburg, Russia and as far west as Canton, China, demonstrating that skilled seamanship can achieve the superior sailing performance required for Baltimore Clipper success as privateers in the War of 1812.
