Ropes were thrown from the 16th century replica ship, Elizabeth II, and tied up at the Grand Marina on the New Bern waterfront Wednesday afternoon for the New Bern 300th Anniversary Jubilee Weekend. It will remained docked behind the Hilton through the weekend, hosting area school groups Thursday and Friday. There will be no admission to tour the ship during the weekend.
