This is the fourth Festival of Sail for Spirit of Dana Point which is a fine example of an eighteenth century vessel giving twenty-first century children the chance to learn about life at sea. Originally named Pilgrim of Newport, it was Dennis Holland’s lifelong dream to build a traditionally accurate replica of a 1770s privateer used during the American Revolution. It took him thirteen years to build the ship in his backyard from plans he purchased from the Smithsonian Institute. Her design was built for speed, and was a predecessor to the Baltimore Clipper, which was used for smuggling. The ship was purchased by the Ocean Institute in 2004 to join their education fleet and renamed Spirit of Dana Point, in honor of the community that supports her worthy mission.
