I am a huge fan of the “sharp-built” privateers that came to be known as Baltimore clippers. They look fast sitting still and under sail, they are nothing less than breathtaking. The Lynx, a replica Baltimore clipper, which was just up in New Hampshire, will be sailing on the east Coast and in the Great Lakes this summer as part of the Great Lakes United Tall Ships Challenge. We have just learned from Dexter Donham of Sailing Ship Adventures that the Pride of Baltimore II, a fellow Baltimore clipper, will be sailing the Great Lakes as well. Guest crew berths are apparently still available.
