If you live near San Diego
, the Maritime Museum of San Diego
Star of India
, barque, 1863, due to sail next in 2017;
HMS Surprise, replica 18th cent. frigate (from film Master & commander), now after an extensive repair will be sailing a few times each year;
Californian, tops'l schooner, replica 1847 Revenue Service cutter
, operated 150 times plus per year (I'll be sailing her today)
San Salvador, replica 1539 Spanish galleon, now nearing completion and fitting out for regular operations. In addition, if you like power boats, we also operate a 1904 steam yacht on her original compound steam engine
a dozen or so time per year, a 1914 pilot boat approximately 600 operations annually, and a Viet Nam War era Swift Boat approximately 100 times per year.
I don't know anywhere else that you will find that variety. Except for captain
& cooks the crews who sail and maintain this fleet are all volunteers and we are always looking for new shipmates.
