Ray Rees from the Sydney Heritage Fleet is our Speaker on the subject of:

James Craig,- 1874 Tall Ship.- Restoration of the Barque James Craig – History of the ship and what led to it becoming a hulk in Southern Tasmania. It leads right through its rescue, restoration, and operation

Barque James Craig is rightly famous around the world. She is Sydney’s only 19th Century square rigger (or Tall Ship) and her incredible restoration to full sailing condition was recognised in 2003 by the World Ship Trust’s award of their prestigious Maritime Medal.

Her restoration cost almost $A30 million and took nearly 40 years to complete after she was rescued from Recherche Bay in far southern Tasmania.
