Volunteer workday Saturdays are a recurring event on the Schooner Adventure. Volunteers are needed every Saturday to help with vessel maintenance. I can attest to the fact that this a super fun and hard working group of people. They are ready to take on any task that comes up. No experience necessary; the knowledgeable volunteers and crew will show you the ropes. Join the Adventure crew and volunteers as they work on this tremendous project!Schooner Adventure Gloucester MA -8 c Kim SmithContact Lead Shipwright Geoff Deckebach at gdeckebach@schooner-adventure.org or call 978-281-8079 to sign-up or if you have any questions.Schooner Adventure Gloucester MA -9 c Kim SmithSchooner Adventure Gloucester MA -3 c Kim Smith
