After sharing a few videos of her sailing and even my schooner climb, I thought it was time to share my part of helping restore this glorious tall ship. Working on the completely wooden gaff rigged knockabout Schooner Virginia from December 2016 – May 2017. Stripping, sanding, sealing, splicing, painting and more.
Schooner Virginia left her home in Norfolk, Virginia for the bluer waters of Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore. After a lovely sunset cruise, a storm chases her back to the dock.
We definitely have the best seat in the house during the Harborfest Parade of Sail. The Sail Nauticus fleet joins the parade behind the Godspeed from Jamestown.
After months and months of work, the Schooner Virginia debuts at the Norfolk Harborfest where she leads the Parade of Sail.
