Sail Away on a Tall Ship

Schooner Zodiac, built in 1924, for the Johnson and Johnson pharmaceutical heirs, is a beautifully restored windjammer. The Johnsons used it to sail in the 1928 Kings Cup Race from New York to Santander, Spain where they placed fourth. During the Great Depression, the San Francisco Bar Pilots purchased her to work the rugged waters outside the Golden Gate. She was retired after 40 years, as the last American pilot schooner in 1972. Purchased and restored by a group of sailors, shipwrights, and historians with a passion for tall ships, Schooner Zodiac now sails out of Bellingham, Washington.
