Tall Ship Small Ship

It took about 4 years to build the tall ship, Matthew Turner, in Sausalito. Our small ship is two years in the making. Today the brigantine tastes salt water for the first time. Tomorrow our gaff ketch gets another coat of epoxy added to her decks. The spring air is charged with a warm breeze (55 degrees and mostly sunny) and the knowledge that somewhere a vessel is being launched!

The Matthew Turner is an educational tall ship built sustainably in the San Francisco Bay Area. My mother-in-law, Susan, shared a video of the awe-inspiring site of her being released from her birth shed. They are streaming the launch from their website. We can’t wait to be anchored in Richardson Bay along side this new wooden lady!
