    The 'Lynx' docked in Tampa after a cruising into the bay under full sail Wednesday. The clipper is here to help celebrate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the 'Star-Spangled Banner.'

The tall ship Lynx made the short trip from St. Petersburg to Tampa this weekend, overshadowing the much smaller yachts in town for the NOOD Regatta. But the real show was on board the replica privateer.

Here's the view from the Lynx as crewmembers sail the ship around the bay, providing a living history lesson in the process.

The ship will remain in Tampa until the end of the month, available for tours and cruises. Then she'll sail back to St. Pete for another two weeks.
