Sailing a Delaware Ducker – finale, for now, with Cheaspeake Bay Maritme Museum’s Apprentice for a Day program

And so, like all good things, another set of sessions with Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Apprentice for a Day program has ended. And what a way to go – sailing a Delaware Ducker, the sister of the one on which I have been working. We got two little sails in, with some fine tuning of the rigging in between. Video of the sail is below; note that I shot it before we tightened up the snotter to get the sail to lie right. Enjoy, and thanks to our new friends at Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum!

Here are the completed boats. That red one is just amazingly beautiful…
