Ming Dynasty Replica Boat Lands in SF after 69-Day Journey

The Princess Taiping, a handcrafted Chinese Junk and replica of a Ming Dynasty war ship, was supposed to end up in Vancouver after a 69-day motor-less voyage across the Pacific Ocean from Japan.

But a tropical storm drove it to Eureka, CA, instead on Saturday and the crew has since decided to sail south. The junk arrived in San Francisco yesterday.
