title   History   title

This famous two-masted schooner was designed by the renowned shipbuilder Jeremiah Burnham. The FLYING FISH was launched in 1860 in Essex, Massachusetts. For over 20 years, this design dominated the market schooner class and many other shipbuilders used it as a model for their new buildings. The FLYING FISH was one of the fastest ships afloat and brought its cargo and catches of fish into harbour in record time. In those days speed was money.

The races in which the Flying Fish took part must have been very exciting, as they were first of all described by Kipling and later featured in the film "Captain Courageous". The FLYING FISH and with her the fishermen of Gloucester, have not been banished to an obscure past. To this day the schooner remains a very popular model which is frequently built.

Cette célèbre goëlette à deux mâts fut dessinée par le constructeur Jeremiah Burnham. Le FLYING FISH fut lancé en 1860 à Essex, Massachusetts. Pendant plus de 20 ans ce concept domina le marché de la goëlette et grand nombre de constructeurs l'utilisèrent comme modèle pour leurs nouvelles constructions. Le FLYING FISH était l'un des bateaux les plus rapides de la flotte et ramenait son chargement et les prises de poisson au port en un temps record. A cette époque le temps était de l'argent.

Les courses de vitesse auxquelles participait le FLYING FISH devajent être amusantes, elles furent d'une part décrites par Kipling puis mises à l'affiche dans le film "Capitaine Courageux". Le FLYING FISH et les pêcheurs de Gloucester ne furent jamais oubliés. Jusqu'aujourd'hui, la goëlette reste un modèle très populaire qui est encore fréquemment construit.
