The Lynx

Friday afternoon, the Lynx sailed into Gloucester Harbor. She came in under full sail and what a sight! Here she is being followed by the Ardelle. I didn’t know it at the time I took this shot that buddy Jay was taking shots aboard the Ardelle. You should hop over and take a look at his images. He had the sun to his back, I’m almost shooting into the sun.

The Lynx is an interpretation of the 1812 privateer clipper schooners that the Americans used to harass the British as the Americans were fighting the second war of independence.

Here the Lynx exchanges a cannon salute with the Lannon. Careful Tom, the Lynx is armed Lynx is armed with a functioning main battery of four six-pounder carronades and four swivel guns.

I was lucky Steve, I took a few shots as we were still heading out to greet her but the light didn't help. I waited until she passed us. Those you took are outstanding! Great shots!
