It was the perfect weather, lots of sun and a gentle breeze. You’d think that working on one of these schooners it would be time to kick back after the race and enjoy the rest of the day.
Not the case.
The crew was busting it out. Working their butts off. I took pictures early this morning when the boat’s deck was all shiny and gleaming. By the time all the spectators had walked the decks along with the race, the deck was all scuffed up and I imagine there won’t be any rest til she’s back all shiny again.
$410 in the kitty!
We broke $400
Here ‘s the scene at the Heritage Center just after the Schooner race.
Update on The Plum Cove School project from Kristen Michele-
I put a check in the mail today for the GMG tree project. Following are some before/after shots of a landscaping project volunteers completed at Plum Cove this past week. We finished four large planting areas in front of the school all together. All of the hard work raising the funds will be worth the effort! Keep up the good work.
Thanks so much Kristen, for your contribution and your contributions to the blog!
Watch as a mate aboard the Bluenose II convinces me that working aboard these schooners actually involves labor and not cruising into port and getting drunk.
