Jeanie Johnston and Matthew Depart Bangor

Photographs  Aubrey Dale 2006

The replica sailing ships JEANIE JOHNSTON (2000) and MATTHEW (1997) depart from Bangor (N.I.) after the Sea Bangor Festival held over the weekend of June 24/25, 2006. It is interesting to compare the designs of these two "trans-Atlantic" ships.

The caravel MATTHEW employed on John Cabot's 1497 journey of discovery to the "New World" and the passenger and the passenger barque JEANIE JOHNSTON are separated by 350 years or so by age of design.
