Spirit of SC, a 140-ft. two-masted topsail schooner, honors Charleston’s once booming, but largely forgotten shipbuilding industry. The frames, planks and interior finish were shaped from reclaimed, South Carolina Live Oak, Cypress and Long Leaf Yellow Pine. Extensive varnish work showcases the raw beauty of these native woods and the fine craftsmanship joining it all together.The educational mission of Spirit is offering unique opportunities for students focusing on history, math, science and literature of South Carolina’s water resources and encouraging personal responsibility, contribution to community and stewardship of environment. The Rotary Club of Daniel Island was excited to welcome Mr. Hofford and Mr. Turner to tell Spirit’s story and we look forward to supporting their very worthwhile mission!
