The Sydney Maritime Museum exhibits a wonderfully restored clipper ship, which goes under the name of the James Craig, but she was formerly named the Clan MacLeod.

Australia's only operational three masted baque to sail to Newcastle (and back) in first major blue water voyage since restoration.

The officers and crew of the James Craig have been in sail training off Sydney Heads for over six months and all are eager to put their experiences to work with a blue water voyage.
James Craig will be under the command of Captain Ken Edwards RANR, a Cape Horner, one of the very few Australians qualified to take command of a square rigged tall ship. Her mixed crew will come from all around the world some of them learning their skills on other Australian tall ships.
