Star of India’s Rigging

Star of India Rigging

The Star of India has intricate rigging that spans several masts in this large sailing ship docked in San Diego Harbor.  She is named after a huge star sapphire gemstone.    Built in 1863, she is the world’s oldest active iron-hull sailing ship.  She is still a working merchant ship and is open for tours while docked. The Star of India’s history is intriguing enduring wars,  the new steam engines on ships in the 1920’s, and prohibition.  With her colorful past and some unfortunate deaths, some say she is haunted.  She is a  California Historical Landmark and a United States National Historic Landmark.  More than that, she is a wonder to behold.
