Tall Ships, Clippers and Historic Ships
AEMILIA
Aemilia - 1639 - Flagship of Admiral Tromp, illustrious Dutch Mariner, under whose command she was successful in actions against the English, Spanish and Portuguese fleets.
ANDREW JACKSON & DAVID CROCKETT
These two famous clippers were built in Mystic in 1855 and 1853. The Andrew Jackson was built for capacity and speed and set a world record of 15days from New York to Liverpool. The David Crockett served for 46 years and was one of the most successful ships built in an American shipyard.
ARIEL AND TAEPING
in 1866, the Ariel and Taeping left Foochow, China for a 16,000 mile race to the English Channel. They commenced their voyage on the same tide and after months of hard sailing entered the Channel on the same day. The race was voted a draw and they shared the bonus.
CONSTITUTION
Constitution - 1797 - "Old Ironsides", the oldest warship afloat, best remembered for her heroic encounters in the American War of 1812-1815.
ENCHANTRESS
She was built in 1869 in New York Bay by Capt. Bob Fish. She followed in the wake of the yacht "America" and raced in England. Enchantress is seen here ghosting along New York Bay, passing Constitution. Constitution was known as Old Ironsides and was a training ship for apprentices in the late 1870s. Limited Edition lithographs printed in Paris on heavy watercolour stock, in a minimum of 20 colours, with exceptional luminosity.
LIGHTNING & NIGHTINGALE
The 2000 ton Lightning was a clipper in every sense of the word. During her years at sea she not only became one of the most popular passenger carriers on the Australia run, but she set a world record for a sailing ship; 436 miles on one day. The Nightingale can be seen on the right.
REDOUBTABLE
Redoutable - 1792 - commanded by the gallant Jean Jacques Etienne Lucas in her brave battle against "Victory" and "Temeraire" at Trafalgar.
SANTISIMA TRINIDAD
Santisima Trinidad - 1769 - Another brave participant at Trafalgar, under the command of Rear Admiral Don Baltazar Hidalgo Cisneros, she was the largest warship in the world.
THERMOPYLAE & CUTTY SARK
1872 - During the Great Tea Race of 1872, after departing the Shanghai River on June 18, Thermopylae and Cutty Sark passed and re-passed each other on the run up to and across the Indian Ocean, until the Cutty Sark lost her rudder in a gale. The Thermopylae raced home to win. Cutty Sark returned 7 days later after making and fitting a new rudder at sea in stormy conditions.
VICTORY
Victory - 1765 - still part of Britain's heritage, the 100 gun ship that carried Nelson into the Battle of Trafalgar.
WAPPEN
Wappen Von Hamburg - 1668 - commanded by Admiral Karpfanger, she distinguished herself as a Convoy Escort Ship, sinking several pirate ships during her short but successful career.
