FLEETS: Ships begin arriving in Baltimore on Wednesday, September 7 and will include United States, British and Canadian naval ships, U.S. Coast Guard vessels, NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric) and Army Corps of Engineers working vessels, the USS John Brown, and the Savannah as well as traditional sailing ships including the Danish sail-training tall ship Danmark.

In North Locust Point (Under Armour Pier), the HMS Richmond (F 239, Great Britain) is the seventh Royal Navy ship to proudly bear the name. She enjoys strong affiliations in both Richmond upon Thames (Southwest London) and Richmond, North Yorkshire, England. Classified as a Type 23 frigate, she recently spent time in the Arctic working alongside NATO allies during the largest military exercises in the region in over 30 years. Her ship’s motto is A Deo et Rege (From God and the King).
