Even though Adventure couldn’t sail this year due to the pandemic we had a very successful year. A 94-year-old wooden schooner always needs care, and lots of it. The ever expanding volunteer corps put in several thousand hours over the summer on what we called deep maintenance, scraping, painting, tarring the rig, attacking rust and rebuilding boarding floats. Now as we transition to our winter mode, Bosun Phil Dunn has strung lights from the bow to the tops of the fore and main masts, and then down to the stern of our NAtioinal Historic Landmark. We want folks to know that the ship and the organization are well and strong, and proud to be a part of the Gloucester waterfront.
