Pretty damn sure the schooner on the right is Virginia, though I can’t quite tell.  Anybody?

Highlander Sea - Visiting
Tall ship Highlander Sea, stopped in Bay City, Michigan, US one day along with Pride of Baltimore II (Prow visible behind Highlander Sea). Both ships offered free tours during their stay (docked on the east bank of the Saginaw River, just up river from Wenonah Park). Bay City Hall is visible in the background, just to the right of Highlander Sea’s masts.
There is not very much information about Highlander Sea available (that I can find), other than the fact that it is for sale. It is a gaff rigged schooner, and had been advertised as the Flagship of Port Huron, Michigan, US.

HIghlander Sea was built at the John F. James Shipyard in Essex, MA, in 1924.  She sailed under her original name of Pilot as a Boston Harbor pilot for many years, alongside Roseway, built in the same yard a year later.  She’s undergone a few changes of name and ownership (christened Star Pilot, then Highlander Sea) and is currently sitting in Gloucester (well, Rocky Neck), under a cover, waiting to be sold.
