ALMA Alma is a wooden-hulled scow schooner built in 1891 to carry bulk cargo.The flat bottomed hull was designed to navigate the shallow waters of the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta and to rest on the bottom at low tide. Not many ships have this design. With few bridges and connecting roads, scow schooners delivered goods all over the Bay and Delta much as trucks do today. By 1880 there were 250 sailing scows on San Francisco Bay, today there are many more beautiful schooners sailing the bay. ove r all le n gt h : 80 feet r e g iste r ed le n gt h : 59 feet b ea m : 22.6 feet de p t h : 4 feet g r o ss to n n ag e : 41.76 h ei g h t o f f o r e m ast : 67 feet

Launched in 1886 by the Charles Connell and Company shipyard near Glasgow, Scotland, the ship carried goods around Cape Horn (tip of South America) 17 times. It took a crew of 26 men to handle the ship at sea with her complex rigging and 25 sails. ove r all le n gt h : 301 feet r e g iste r ed le n gt h : 256.5 feet b ea m : 38.6 feet de p t h : 22.7 feet g r o ss to n n ag e : 1689 h ei g h t o f f o r e m ast : 145 feet

LY N X Lynx is a square topsail schooner. In general, she is an interpretation of an American privateer vessel of the same name from roughly around 1812. The one original Lynx played its part in running the British blockade, assisting the then almost nonexistent American naval forces, and defending the American coastal waters and merchant ships against the Royal Navy and other enemies. This ship has a mission to serve as a classroom for the study of historical, environmental and ecological issues. ov e r a l l l e n gt h : 80 f e e t r e g i st e r e d l e n gt h : 59 f e e t b e a m : 22.6 f e e t depth: 4 feet g r o ss to n n ag e : 41.76 h e i g h t o f f o r e m ast : 67 f e e t

By the late 1960’s, Polaris had fallen into disrepair. At that time, she was purchased by Bob and Nancy Porteous, who did a major restoration in the 1970’s. They then sailed her in the annual Mariners Regatta and took trips up to the Sacramento River Delta and many other places. In 1984, Polaris was purchased by the Tom List family. Tom raced her every year in the Master Mariner Regatta until 1999, the year she won the Stone Boatyard Cup for the Best Maintained Vessel in the fleet. Polaris also won first place in the Master Mariners 3 years in a row and is proud.

G O L D S TA R Gold Star has been sailing on San Francisco Bay since 1965. She began as one man’s dream in a Richmond cabbage patch. George Krenkel had been always buying, refurbishing, and selling boats all his life when he saw the schooner’s plans in a 1948 Yachting magazine. “It appeared to have everything that I always wanted in a sailboat,” he later said. This and schooner Gold Star has logged more than 35,000 of miles of ocean sailing, including trips to Mexico, Hawaii, and five trips to Alaska. The crew says how comfortable the vessel is on a long ocean trip, as well as sailing on San Francisco Bay. ov e r a l l l e n gt h : 301 f e e t r e g i st e r e d l e n gt h : 256.5 f e e t b e a m : 38.6 f e e t d e p t h : 22.7 f e e t g r o ss to n n ag e : 1689 h e i g h t o f f o r e m ast : 145 f e e t
