Artist's Description

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the 126 foot Schooner Virginia sailing into the wind out of Gloucester’s Inner Harbor. Schooners this size will motor out into the main harbor before striking sails. Not the Skipper of the Virginia, making a bold statement, he piloted his schooner out with gusto.

The Virginia is a two-masted, gaff-topsail knockabout schooner, meaning she lacks a bowsprit and her headsails can be handled and furled from the deck. Designed from the original blueprint of her namesake vessel, the last pure sailing vessel built for the Virginia Pilot Association on the Chesapeake Bay. She is 126 feet long, 24 feet wide and weighs 157 tons; her tallest mast – the mainmast – towers 112 feet off the water.

This wonderful image is part of Steve Borichevsky’s Maritime New England series.
