Nice. Where were those pics taken? I'm referring to poopdeckpappy's tall ships vs. the teenagers.

Not really - they'd make fabulous granddaughters.

Re: Here's sone pretty girls

We saw two tall ships last weekend at Put-In-Bay, OH prior to this weekends 200 year anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. Very cool! (That's yours truly at the helm. )

Re: Here's sone pretty girls

Very nice ships! I was in Penetanguishene and Midland last weekend and got to see the Niagara and the Pride of Baltimore which are a pair of jauntily raked topsail schooners.

To tack a tall ship with squares you actually head up into the wind and allow the backing of the squares to drive the nose around, only tacking them after the fore and aft sails tack across. They are quite maneuverable even at very slow speeds. Big circles though because of the long keels.

Re: Here's sone pretty girls

I didn't know you could tack a square rigger - I thought you had to "wear ship" - gybe all the way around.
