Here's a photo I got of the foremast this morning at sunrise as we were getting ready to board the guests at New Bedford State Pier.

Captain was trying to time arrival at slack at the CC Canal due to currents. However, we did have a great untethered sail, wore ship, tacked (which I have never done before on a square rigger) and actually was headed out to sea from New Bedford under sail. Flew everything but royals and mizzen topsail. Great time was had by all and the ship sails and responds much better than I imagined.

Subject: [38Talk] Already arrived at Mass Maritime AcademyHmm. Today's voyage leg appears to have been short. They were outside the hurricane barrier at New Bedord at about 8:00am and arrived at Mass Maritime a few minutes after noon. Is that right? Were there weather concerns? Or was this always planned as a short leg?View and reply to this message
PS: I owe several long replies on longitude, lunars, original fabric, and more, and I will have time later this afternoon to get back to those topics!
