More Tallship Sites

"I looked back now at Staten Island with the Horn behind, and I hoped to God I should come that way no more in sail. I had hoped that before, perhaps even more fervently on at least two occasions; yet here I was again. And I made no promises and took no oaths, for I knew well that my life, such as it is, is too bound up in these ships for me to make forecasts. If the ships bring me here again I suppose I shall come. But I hope not."

- Alan Villiers
