James Craig is one of only four restored 19th century sailing vessels in the world that are able to go to sea. She is very similar to Melbourne’s Polly Woodside, having an iron hull and the same rig, and is of about the same length and tonnage. Unfortunately, Polly is confined to her riverside dock and will never again sail the open sea.
