On June 4, 2022 a celebration to commemorate the re-launch of the Maine's First Ship reconstruction of the pinnace Virginia took place. The original Virginia was the first English ocean-going ship built in the new world. Construction was begun in 1607 and she was launched in 1608 at Fort St George in what is now Phippsburg Maine. The ship was designed to explore the region then called Sagadahoc in north Virginia, and now called Midcoast Maine, and to show it was possible to build a ship using local materials.
