THE JAMESTOWN-YORKTOWN FOUNDATION

The deed of gift from the family that donated this nautical object, stipulated that the proceeds of the sale would support the Jamestown Settlement sailing program. Private funding has an essential role in supporting the largely volunteer nature of this effort. Along with three paid staff members, up to 35 individuals volunteer 10,000 hours each year to maintain and sail these historic ships.

Jamestown Settlement’s Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery – re-creations of the three vessels that brought America’s first permanent English colonists to Virginia in 1607 – have been designated “the official fleet of the Commonwealth” by the Virginia General Assembly.

Each year one of the ships sails periodically to other ports to participate in commemorative and community events and host educational programs for students. Sailing program volunteer crew assist visitors and students in exploring the ships and learning about the 1607 voyage and 17th-century shipboard activities.

Jamestown Settlement is located on State Route 31 and the Colonial Parkway. For more information and admission rates, call (888) 593-4682 toll-free or (757) 253-4838, or visit www.historyisfun.org.

Skipjack Nautical Wares & Marine Art Gallery is proud to be selected as the marketing and selling agent for this donated collection of nautical items in order to raise funds to support the Jamestown Settlement sailing program. Please donate generously to the Jamestown Settlement to help keep this important piece of our American history flourishing.
