Gloucester Schooner Festival

The Gloucester Schooner Festival gets underway this weekend. I'm reminded of this because one of the ships pulled in yesterday and is anchored in Ipswich Bay, within sight of Lanes Cove. She is the Gazela Primeiro, owned by the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild.

Length: 177 ft. overall, 140 ft. on deck, 133 ft. on the waterline
Height: 94 ft. from the deck
Width: 26 ft. at maximum beam
Draft: approx. 17 ft.
Tonnage: 652 deadweight, 299 gross
