Sail Furling

by

We arrived back in Washington, DC just as the Pride of Baltimore was finishing up her visit.  She’d spent 3 days offering deck tours and a chance to take (for a fee) a brief sails on a tall ship.  The sun had just set as the crew scrambled up the rigging and out on the yards to tightly furl the sails.

The crew furls the last sail.

Furling complete, the crew descends.

The next morning the Pride of Baltimore*, now just another large power boast with a very tall VHF antenna, started motoring down the Potomac.

 

*The Pride of Baltimore is classified as a Baltimore Clipper a topsail schooner.
