Here’s the reason you should drop what you’re doing and book your sails and accommodations for schooner Festival now!

First off you want to get on the good boats and by good boats I mean not the weird ones that have a bunch of desk jockeys masquerading as salty seamen.  Also the good boats meaning boats built by and financed with their own money that rely on you to support them.

Also by good boats I mean the local people that you run into in our community that give back in so many ways.

So here’s the move,
