Five years have elapsed since the last time Star of India sailed, so the opportunity to join her under sail this November makes this an a more unique experience!
Star of India, built in 1863, is the world’s oldest active sailing ship and has circumnavigated the globe 21 times. Star of India first came to the City of San Diego in 1927. It was not until 1951 when Maritime
Museum of San Diego made long-awaited historical renovations to the vessel originally named Euterpe, after the Greek goddess of music and poetry.
Guests can reserve tickets aboard the vessels visitors find at the Maritime Museum including:
• Californian, the official tall ship of the state
• San Salvador, the 1542 Spanish galleon replica built in San Diego by staff and volunteers
• America, a replica of the historic yacht that won the America’s Cup in 1851
The Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18 Star of India sailing celebration includes the opportunity to sail aboard three legendary sailing vessels on this historic occasion when Star of India sails through San Diego Bay and heads out off Point Loma.
Tickets include catered breakfast, lunch, drinks, and celebratory champagne.
Each ship will include an on-board historian to deepen guests’ understanding of
Star of India, the history behind all vessels and the Museum.
