Some beautiful tack maneuvers this time. I can remember so very well having to recover a failed tack with the tried and true method of setting a new course through that wonderful invention of square rigged ship captains--the WEAR.

I did not notice before that you had stowed your starboard carronades.

Watching your ship brings back a nostalgia when we sailed together and tried to gain position to fire a broadside. Once in a while I miss Surprise........

Great video. And I used to entertain boat people by hauling along side their craft and sending a broadside in their general direction. We had some great times on the lake. I appreciate your video.

Awesome video. (PERIOD)

I hope to ask to sail in company next year. That would be two brigs in company...reminds me of 1813. I could also bring a schooner and cutter for other captains. We could search for the British
