NPS Schooner Alma Participates In Festival of Sail

San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park

National Park News

Last week, San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park’s 1891 scow schooner Alma joined 15 other vessels in a Parade of Sail through the Golden Gate. The event kicked-off San Francisco’s 2008 Festival of Sail. The park also hosted the Festival’s Marine Education Village, which featured daylong ranger-led interactive demonstrations of shipboard life: visitors hauled on lines to raise sail, loaded cargo, sang sea chanteys, and made maritime crafts.
