Built in 1911 as a North Sea trader and fishing vessel, she was retired to the canal s of Amsterdam before her 1987 resurrection as an ocean voyager. (DiscoveryCharters,Box 1182,Dunedin, New Zealand) This rash of Cape Hom roundings got Windjammer editors thinking about the last time a wooden square-rigger took the honor. It appears the last westward rounding was on the 26th of January, 1967, by our own Regina Maris, the wooden barkentine being restored today at Greenport on Long Island, New York, an NMHS-supported project.
