The flying jib sails of the barque Star of India catch and reflect light in a constantly changing display. The barque rig of this impressive 210-foot long vessel has powered her passengers and cargo across the length and breadth of the Seven Seas since 1863.
Euterpe, the Greek Muse of Music, is the figurehead on the bow of the barque Star of India and the ship’s namesake at the time of her launch in 1863. The Star of India is America’s fourth oldest tall ship still afloat after the 1797 USS Constitution, the 1841 Charles W. Morgan, and 1854 USS Constellation.
I have been shooting various studies of the Star of India at sea and ashore for several years and have yet to repeat a single angle or light or texture.
Originally named Euterpe after one of the Muses in Greek mythology by builders on the Isle of Man, the ship sailed to India and back for decades. In late 1871 she began twenty-five years of carrying passengers and freight in the New Zealand emigrant trade, each voyage going eastward around the world before returning to England. In 1897, she was sold to Hawaiian owners, was sold again shortly afterwards and in 1906, she was re-named Star of India to match the naming convention of other ships in the Alaska Packers' Association fleet. In 1926, the Zoological Society of San Diego purchased her to become the centerpiece of a planned museum. Those plans were postponed and restoration began in 1956. The Star of India put to sea again in 1976 in celebration of the U.S. Bicentennial and has served as a museum ship since at the San Diego Maritime Museum.
