John Skoriak was on hand to photograph the rigging of the Topgallant and Upper topsail. A big thank you to the rigging team and John for capturing the action!
The sewing team at work making chafe guards for mooring lines and repairing Seaward's sail cover. Starbuck Canvas Works is generously donating use of their space and mentoring us on the canvas projects for Matthew Turner.
First time to hoist the mainsail, in order to take some measurements, but that dark cloud came with a wind shift so we had to lower it quickly. Still, it was exciting to briefly see some sail up on Matthew Turner!
Peter Streitman took some wonderful drone footage of Kiel and Randall hoisting the topgallant yard last Friday. Photo by Benson Lee shows Matthew Turner with her full compliment of yards.
