The replica of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to America has set sail from Plymouth, Massachusetts, to another historic port in Connecticut, where it will undergo a restoration. The Mayflower II departed Plymouth harbor earlier this month for Mystic Seaport. If the repairs go on schedule, the 106-foot-long, 57-year-old ship will be back in Plymouth in May for the summer tourist season. Seaport officials have said it could return to Mystic for additional work over the next two winters to get it in shape to sail in 2020, the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival.
