My New Book

By Maritime Photograp...

Wake of the Windjammers
Cruising along the coast of New England are the last of a great fleet of windjammers, once numbering in the thousands. Many of them transported cargoes of raw materials and supplies along the eastern seaboard and around the world; some fished on the Grand Banks; while others ferried pilots to ocean going ships entering and leaving major American seaports. The last remaining vessels have been designated National Historic Landmarks. These restored vessels, along with re-creations of the past, now carry passengers and maritime students on week and summer-long cruises. Following in their wakes , I continue to document these historic icons as they sail , in harmony with the wind and sea.
