I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,to relish the pristine scenery, in the land called Haida Gwaii.

By Aeros    
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

This trip was a lifelong dream come true. A long way from racing one design dinghies (International 505's).Like going from racing a Lamborghini to driving a moving truck. At my age the moving truck is a lot more comfortableBlush
Maple Leaf is a traditional schooner built in 1904, she's 94' LWL. I was in awe of the skilled craftsmanship and the obvious love of wooden sailing vessels, which went into the restoration of this graceful traditional century old schooner.

As selfies go, this has to be one of the most interesting.
