One of the last survivors of the windjammer era, the Lady Elizabeth is slowly rusting away in a quiet cove near Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands .  

This series of web pages is dedicated to the Lady Elizabeth in the hope that some person or organization might seek to preserve the barque before it is too late.

Approaches to the preservation and restoration of the Lady Elizabeth may differ. Should the ship be recorded and stabilized in situ? Should it be preserved as an artifact or should it be restored to its former glory? There are advantages and disadvantages to each option. However, regardless of which option, the time available in which to act is finite.

I am grateful to those who have contributed to these web pages.
