Today in Learn Along with Claire, get to know your tall ships! In case you didn’t know, I will spending part of February, March and April sailing the Atlantic aboard the topsail schooner Oosterschelde. At the moment she and her sisters are off the coast of Hobart, Tasmania as part of the Australian tall ships regatta. A couple of local filmmakers hopped on board their boat and sailed out to the harbor to put together this video, which serves as an ideal tool to get acquainted with a pirate’s most important asset: the ship!

This is so interesting, my g-grandfather was a Tasmanian merchant who shipped goods in and out of Sydney and Hobart on ships like these! Lovely post!
Wow, Lois! How cool to have these ships as part of your family history! Thanks for stopping by!
