Lynx was designed and built to interpret the general configuration and operation of a privateer schooner or naval schooner from the War of 1812. Serving effectively as a blockade-runner and offensive weapon of war, the original Lynx was among the first ships to defend American freedom. Dedicated to all those who cherish the blessings of America, Lynx sails as a living history museum; she flies flags from the 1812 era and crew members wear period uniforms and operate the ship in keeping with 19th century America maritime traditions. Lynx also operates as a sail-training vessel.
