Lynx is slated to arrive Saturday or Sunday, depending on weather, and will moor at Brunswick Landing Marina until Dec. 10.

Maritime enthusiasts of all ages will have a chance to go back in time and learn about Revolutionary War-era sailing next week in Brunswick.

The 122-foot long tall sailing ship Lynx is slated to arrive sometime Saturday or Sunday depending on weather and will moor at Brunswick Landing Marina until Dec. 10. The ship will be open for free, public deck tours and paid day-sailing trips during its stay. The ship was in Cape Charles, Va., on Wednesday where weather was preventing it from leaving. Click here to see the ship’s current location.

Lynx’s crew is also slated to give cannon salutes as the ship enters the area and passes the St. Simons Lighthouse and near the Sidney Lanier Bridge. Read The Brunswick News online at TheBrunswickNews.com and in print for arrival time updates.

Free deck tours will be available from 1-3 p.m. Dec. 5; 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Dec. 6; and 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Dec. 7-9.

Paid day-sailing excursions will be offered from 2-4:30 p.m. Dec. 7-9 and tickets are $25 for children 16 and younger and $45 for adults at TallShipLynx.com.

The ship will be moored on dock No. 1 of the Brunswick Landing Marina, 1701 Torras Landing in Brunswick, across from the Harold Pate Building.

Commissioned in 2001 as an educational vessel, the Lynx is an interpretation of a 1812 privateer, a warship for hire, of the same name that was used during the War of 1812. It is homeported in Nantucket, Mass., and travels the American coast offering programs for students and the general public to learn about early American maritime history.

It is coming to Brunswick thanks to the St. Marys Tall Ship Alliance, a nonprofit group aimed at promoting enthusiasm for tall ships and inviting them to the South Georgia coast.

Jim Crawford, the group’s vice president, said he learned about the Lynx online and worked with others to bring her to Brunswick.

“Every winter they sail south to St. Petersburg, Fla.,” he said. “I figured if they were sailing south, I thought we could get them to swing through. I reached out and sent and email, and sure enough, they said they’d be happy to come to Brunswick.”

Michael Torras, manager of Brunswick Landing Marina, offered a berthing at the marina at no cost to help sweeten the deal.

“We are donating the dock space to them because we think it’s a really neat fit,” Torras said. “They’re going to allow kids and teachers and members of the public to come aboard, and it’s going to be a good educational experience for the kids and public.”

While no school field trips are scheduled for the Lynx this time around, the ship is set to return in spring 2019. Educators are invited to come meet the crew and learn about future field trip opportunities during an open house from 2-4 p.m. Dec. 6 on board the ship. The ship’s crew offers curriculum centered around seafaring in the 18th and 19th centuries, the role of privateer ships in American history and lessons on the Revolutionary War.

“(The ship) is owned and operated by the Lynx Educational Foundation, and what they do is preserve privateer-type ships and their place in history,” Crawford said. “They offer a program for anywhere from fourth- to eighth-grade children to come on the ship and they have an educational program where they let them hoist a sail and they teach them about the role of the privateer ships and their role in the Revolutionary War.”

The modern Lynx is modeled on pre-war plans of the original Lynx privateer. The original ship was built in Baltimore, Md., and was commissioned in July of 1812. The ship successfully ran one blockade before being captured by the British in April 1813 during the Battle of the Rappahannock River in Virginia. The British navy commandeered Lynx and renamed her HMS Mosquidobit. The navy decommissioned the ship in 1820.

Was given an extraordinary opportunity to not only work alongside her but also to help sail her for a short time when she came to New Orleans this past spring. Her crew is fantastic, welcoming, and absolutely eager to share Lynx's fine history. If ye get a chance to visit her I can't recommend it enough. The Day-sails may be a bit pricey but are absolutely worth it!

I suspect that Swashbuckler was--to a degree--a remake of this one.

After the last visitors left the ship the crew came into action and started to remove sails, wreaths and some of the plating. All to prepare her for the maintenance job. 'Shtandart' is now temporary relocated to the shipyard at La Pallice (the commercial deep-water port of La Rochelle), where a big gantry crane is waiting to hoist her ashore for routine inspection and repairs at the underwater parts.After the last visitors left the ship the crew came into action and started to remove sails, wreaths and some of the plating.
