Star of India!
First time she’s been out sailing in about 5 years.
And she is made for sailing alright- more than 20 times around the world. One of her main purposes was delivering passengers emigrating to New Zealand. More fun facts: Star of India was built in 1863 at Ramsey in the Isle of Man as Euterpe, a full-rigged iron windjammer ship. ... She is the oldest ship still sailing regularly and also the oldest iron-hulled merchant ship still floating. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_of_India_(ship)
