Historic Schooners Lettie G Howard and Amistad

Sail trainees from the Harbor School trying to get the 'Lettie' moving in barely a zephyr on Narragansett Bay. The Lettie G. Howard is owned and operated by the South Street Seaport Museum in Manhattan.

The re-created Freedom Schooner Amistad (launched in 2000) is drifting along in the background.

Link here for more on the Lettie (launched in 1893) and other vessels in the South Street fleet and here to go to the Amistad web site.
