Looks like good fun, always nice to see small trad boats used on the water.

Well we didn't get out on the water, but I spent most of yesterday portraying a Conquistadore with friends on the Nina replica in Petaluma. No photos yet, but the crowd loved the armor, costumes and matchlock volleys from the sterncastle...

Here's a photo of Patrick and one of the Ramirez brothers from Sacramento a few weeks ago.

May do the same next weekend in Jack London Square if the Coasties don't get over-excited about the gunfire...

I hope that dude in the metal armor had a PDF on - I would imagine you sink pretty quick!

And what, exactly would Adobe Acrobat files have to do with keeping you afloat? :rolleyes::D

JD two different reenactments ;)

The topsail along with a forsail & jib is a really cool 1700's Cape Ann Dorry and man that girl moved ;)

It was a great day to watch these 18th century boats, manned with historically clad crew...We had a blast sailing lazy eights with our fellow historic craft...

Thanks for the pix Joe, even though they barely convey the beauty of these craft and crew in the Highlands...And don't forget the cannon fire!

Sorry to take so long responding. Haven't been on in a while. I'd be happy to answer any questions regarding the rig of the General Arnold.

Nice pictures, by the way Joe.

'historically clad crew'. Try saying that three times fast.
