The Star of India is the world’s oldest active sailing ship, having been launched in 1863 from the Isle of Man under the name of “Euterpe”, after the Greek muse of music and poetry.  After six trips to India, she spent 25 years transporting emigrants to New Zealand, followed by hauling salmon from Alaska to California.  She is presently part of the Maritime Museum of San Diego.
