    This is an important project from which much has been learned about construction techniques ofa large wooden-hulled sailing vessel.
    Currently the sails are being made, and the rigging will be completed next year, with the launch of the hull planned for late summer, followed by sea trials in 2013. Construction of this wonderful replica of l’Hermione can be followed on the website at:
