The Schooner Ardelle Has Hung It’s Shingle

The schooner Ardelle is fully operational now and is located down at Maritime Gloucester on Harbor Loop. Capt. Harold Burnham is aboard and he and his crew are doing afternoon sails at 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.  Harold Burnham tells us that he is going to run the charters from Weds. Through Sunday at 2 and 4:30 so do come down for an afternoon sail or call him at 978-290-7168 for more information.

The schooner Ardelle was an epic project for Burnham and what is most amazing about it is that just one year ago, there were a few frames up in the Burnham yard after hosting a Frame Up and keel signing ceremony on Labor Day 2010. Here it is one year later and Ardelle  is fully-rigged, Coast Guard certified and ready for a sail.  The community support has been amazing, so please do come down and support this new endeavor!

  1. My wife and I just enjoyed a long weekend visit to Gloucester, and I had the distinct pleasure of a 2 hour sail on the Ardele!! Capt Harold is an absolute fount of knowledge about schooners and their history, and even though I’ve been sailing since I first learned back in the mid-50’s, I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed time on the water more! For sure, we’ll fly in from Atlanta next chance we get, and will check out how the Ardele is doing.
