We are building this website to share information related to the whaling bark Sunbeam, which sailed from New Bedford, Massachusetts, for most of the last half of the 19th century. My great-grandfather, George Tripp, sailed aboard Sunbeam and we’ve been collecting information related to his voyage and the ship itself, which was one of the most well-documented whaling ships of its time.
Please stay tuned while we get all the information loaded. If you have some ideas or information to share, we’d love to hear about it. You can reach us through the Contact form on this website.
