WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
America’s Privateer Lynx is a 122’ square topsail schooner designed and built to interpret the general configuration and operation of a privateer schooner or naval schooner from the War of 1812. Dedicated to all those who cherish the blessings of America, Lynx sails as a living history museum, providing inspiration and resolve at this time in our nation’s history. To complement her historic character, the Lynx crew members wear period uniforms and operate the ship in keeping with the maritime traditions of early 19th century America. Lynx also operates as a sail training vessel to serve as a classroom for the study of historical, environmental, and ecological issues. www.privateerlynx.com
