Tall Ship Lynx At Yorktown, Virginia




This weekend is Maritime Weekend at Yorktown at which a variety of ships were featured. This is the Lynx;   a representation of a War of 1812 Baltimore Clipper. She has a sparred length of 122 feet and the mast
(the top photo) is 94 feet. It is fast, maneuverable and well-armed.  It was a great ship to run blockades or privateer in..

What a wonderful excursion you've shared with us all. I love every bit. Especially a few posts below [as I play catch-up]....the statue of Pochantas. Fabulous.

That first shot is riveting. 94 feet is a long way up---or down, depending on your situation. It never occurred to me there would be an anniversary celebration of the war of 1812. Good to know.

What a marvelous sight Darryl and Ruth, one of my most favorite things to see when they are all rigged up and flying through the water.
