The replica of the original Mayflower ship that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620 briefly set sail off the shores of southern Rhode Island on Thursday.
The vessel, which is in the midst of two-week-long sea trials, sailed alongside the United States Coast Guard Cutter Barque Eagle, which is used to train cadets. The Mayflower II is out in the deeper waters of Block Island Sound.
