Windjammer under Sail


Black and white scrimshaw by Gerry Dupont on ancient walrus tooth ivory. Excellent detail of elaborate rigging for the windjammer. Dupont always does his best, as can be seen here.
A windjammer is a commercial sailing ship with multiple masts that may be square rigged, or fore-and-aft rigged, or a combination of the two. The informal term “windjammer” arose during the transition from the Age of Sail to the Age of Steam during the 19th century.
