Ahoy, mates! I have written an article describing the complex political and historical context of what it meant to be a Jacobite.

Mikelikestosail posted a topic in The Crow's NestHi to all, I am a reenactor of 18th century naval and maritime events, and will be moving to Port Lavaca, Texas next month, having just bought a 30 foot (modern) sailboat (soon to be rerigged for training purposes), with intentions of buying and retrofitting an even larger (41 to 50 foot) sailer in 2015. Before this extravigance however, I am seeking a core goup of people in the Texas Gulf Coast Region (and guests welcome from anywhere) to learn to sail the "little boat" and form the basis of a crew devoted to portraying all walks of maritme life from 1700 to 1799.. The ultimate goal is to reproduce something like a packet boat or dispatch ship complete with able crew, to participate in events ranging from the Golden Age of Piracy to F& I, Revwar and Anglo/American hostilities toward the end of the century. No money is required at this time, only enthusiastic participation and a desire to learn to sail! This organization welcomes all persons of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations and invites capable people who are physically challenged to particpate.
