Schooner Bill of Rights at sail in San Diego Bay

South Bayfront Sailing Association is pleased to have one of the most beautiful schooners in the world today. The Bill Of Rights was built in 1971 by Joseph Davis in the Harvey Gamage Boatyard in Bristol, Maine. She was designed by McCurdy and Rhodes who modeled her after a beautiful schooner of the nineteenth century. From 1971 to 1997 the Bill of Rights graced the New England waters. In 1998, she sailed 5700 nautical miles to her home in Southern California where she has successfully provided an amazing learning environment for thousands of young students and program participants. Today, the Bill of Rights is berthed in Chula Vista harbor and is surrounded by the San Diego Bay national marine reserve. The schooner is available for on-the-water educational day cruises and on the water adventures.
