Bigger in Texas


Good Morning Everyone. Well they say everything is bigger in Texas and they aren’t kidding, at least when it comes to sailboats. As regular followers know I am down here to sail aboard the 1877 barque Elissa. She is a beautiful three masted vessel with square sails on the forward 2 masts and a mizzen mast that looks similar to what you might see on a fore and aft rigged schooner. The staff and volunteers at the Texas Seaport Museum keep this piece of history alive and well. I am lucky enough to sail aboard her as one of her officers. Click here to learn more about Elissa and the Texas Seaport Museum. I will keep you posted on what we are doing here as time permits.

Have a great day. Be Well. Do Good.
