HIGH-SPEED COMMUTER VESSEL PASSES RARE SQUARE RIGGER JAMES CRAIG ON SYDNEY HARBOUR.
Sydney's oldest sailing ship, the steel hulled square rigger James Craig is overtaken by a high speed commuter craft as it makes its official return to service July 2, 2001 on Sydney Harbour. Restored, crewed and maintained by hundreds of volunteers over 30 years, she was originally launched in 1874. The 54.7 metre-long three-masted Barque rig will undertake working-up cruises before turning to charter work to cover maintenance costs. Charter cost for the ship per day is A$13,500 ($6,900) including catering.
