Top Sail Schooner Video Lessons

Schooners evolved from a number of 2-masted, gaff-rigged vessels in the late 1600s.  They quickly became the vessel of choice for coastal voyages.  They carried a respectable amount of cargo and required few men in the crew. Most schooners were working ships, but a number of very wealthy businessmen outfitted them as luxury crafts for pleasure and travel.  Ships did not need a second mast unless they were 50 feet or longer, thus the schooner is the low–end of Multi-mast Tall Ships.  They were called sloops or cutters if the ship size could only support one mast.

5-Mast Bark Video Lesson

This ship is also known as a barc or barque.  From 1605 until today, people have had difficulty defining exactly what is a bark.  It typically meant any 3-mast plus ship which didn’t fit the definition of other Tall Ship categories and had a certain sail plan (arrangement of sails).  The bark required a small crew, held a good cargo and could outperform a brig or a schooner.  To help with speed, 4- and 5-mast versions of the Bark were built in the 1800’s.  Many have survived to this day.  The optimum tall ship is the 4-Mast Bark, according to many ancient seamen.  This painting illustrates
