The replica of the Lynx sailing today was designed by Melbourne Smith - International Historical Watercraft Society, based on historical data, and built by Taylor Allen and Eric Sewell at Rockport Marine, Rockport, Maine. She was launched on July 28, 2001 in Rockport, Maine, making her a very new addition to the tall ship community. Her port of registry is with Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Today, instead of fighting the British like her original counterpart, she serves as an education vessel. She teaches seamanship and history to those who step on her deck. Notably, the Lynx is known for her summer program where she sails to Hawaii with students. Along the way students learn about sail handling, navigation, seamanship, leadership and learning to face unforeseen challenges. Her four carronades and four swivel guns usually get their exercise during weekends when another tallship is in port, such as the Lady Washington, where the two tall ships engage in "Battle sail", using actual battle tactics. While the battling tallships are using actual black powder, they however shoot blanks. Members of the public are able to book passages on these three-hour battles.

 

HISTORY

Lynx is an interpretation of an actual privateer named Lynx built by Thomas Kemp in 1812 in Fell's Point, Maryland. She was among the first ships to defend American freedom by evading the British naval fleet then blockading American ports and serving in the important privateering efforts.
