Did you know that although built as a four-masted vessel in the British medium clipper model, Falls of Clyde was down-rigged twice to a bark for part of her sailing career, which is a three-masted vessel. However, clearly her splendor is as her original rigging, which is where Friends of Falls of Clyde intends to take her with the restoration.
Did you know that during years 1898-1899, Falls of Clyde sailed under three flags? She arrived in San Francisco under the British Union Jack. There she was sold to Captain William Matson and she sailed to Hawaii under the Hawaiian flag. Finally, she was reflagged again and flew the U.S. flag from then on.
