Artist's Description

One of my favorite schooners, the Virginia was photographed on Gloucester Harbor during the annual Schooner Festival. 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.
