Product Description

Few things on the high seas are more dramatic than the great clouds of sail raised by traditional full-rigged ships. This edition of Tall Ships 2019 features 'America's Tall Ship' Eagle, the Chilean barquentine Esmeralda, the clipper-rigged Morgenster, the new Peruvian barque Union flying all the canvas in her locker, and more. Sales of the calendar benefit Tall Ships America that supports sail training and education under sail.
