For the first time in many years, Star of India
is not sailing in 2008, due to a combination of factors: we are preparing for another tall ships festival in a few weeks, expanding the foot print of the museum by the installation
of a floating dock
, acquiring the submarine USS Dolphin AGSS 555 and retrofitting her as a museum ship, and replacing the fosks'l head deck
on the Star. She'll be back sailing in 2009, but this year in November we will be sailing our other ships Californian, HMS Surprise, and Medea (steaming her) together to celebrate Star's 45th birthday.
