I recently had the pleasure of spending an afternoon aboard the tall ship, Lynx, docked from now until April 17th, at Riverfront Park, North Water Street, Wilmington. My friend Chris Lang and I were allowed to shoot on a day on which the boat was closed to tours. Chris had a bridal shoot that afternoon and had arranged with the captain to shoot aboard ship. The Captain and crew were very accommodating.

I will tell you briefly about Lynx. To really read about its history you can go here to the web site of the Lynx Educational Foundation. The ship was built in Rockport, Maine and launched in 2001. It was actually the first square rigger built in Rockport since 1885. Its a wooden ship of 122 foot spar length, displaces 144 tons, has a 23 foot beam and draws 9 feet. Go to their web site and really learn about this wonderful vessel. Once again, the tours aboard Lynx are offered from now until April 17th in Wilmington and are from 10-6. Go have some fun and tour a real tall ship.
