The Tall Ships Challenge could be returning to Greenport Harbor in 2015.

During Village Board work session Tuesday night, Mayor David Nyce said he received a letter from the Tall Ships of America indicating interest in returning to the village.

The ships drew more than 60,000 people when they ported in the village last year during The Tall Ships Challenge 2012 tour. Mr. Nyce has said the village made about $20,000 above the $190,000 it cost to host it.

Tall Ships of America did not provide any schedule for the 2015 tour, however, more details on the event are expected to be provided to the village in the coming weeks, Mr. Nyce said.

The village needs to respond with a request for proposal by next month, he added.
