Maintaining the Amistad
Rachel Margolis, a deckhand/educator on the schooner Amistad, sits on the jib boom as she bends-on the jib sail Monday, May 15, 2017 while docked at Amistad Pier in New London. Amistad is back in New London to mark the 175th anniversary of the Amistad Africans' return to Africa. Discovering Amistad in conjunction with the Custom House Maritime Museum is hosting weekend day-sails on the schooner weekends in May. The three-hour sails, which can be booked through the museum, will be on the remaining Saturdays and Sundays in May, weather permitting.
