Brigantine Corwith Crammer

Most sailing ships we get in Gloucester are schooners. The Corwith Cramer is a brigantine which is a vessel with two masts, only the forward mast is square rigged.

Along with the Corwith Cramer is a wind surfer and a medium sail boat.

The Cramer is a beautiful boat. My older sister spent a summer on it back when we were in college. My parents practically had to drag me off when they set sail, I wanted to go too! I'll forward this link to her so she can reminisce.

I just sit and shake my head at your photos Steve. Half the time there really arent words to express their beauty.

Those sailing ships are magnificent. I love the look up the mast, and that last photo with the ships at sea.

I really like the last photo. The simple beauty reminds me of why I love living near the ocean.
