One of only five tall ships left in the world, the American Pride plies the waters of Long Beach Harbor on Monday. As part of the city's Charter Communications Long Beach Sea Festival, about 1,000 local youths sail aboard the three-masted schooner to study the ship's history and learn sailing techniques. The American Pride was built in 1941 with two masts, and was used for fishing for almost 40 years in the North Atlantic. It was rebuilt in 1986. Here, crew member Ann Wasser climbs up to look for a tear in the schooner's sail.
