Listen, you can put all that talk around town that The Schooner Adventure was Gloucester’s Big Dig to rest. You can also put to rest the talk that it could have been rebuilt five times over brand new with the money they spent by saving a little corner of the hull and rebuilding around it like they’ve done with the Bluenose up in Nova Scotia.
None of that matters now. She took her first Sail With All Sails Up Today!
A GLORIOUS DAY!
Congratulations to all those that have put in the time, effort and cheddar to make this day happen. Huge accomplishment.
Look for the Adventure to Sail In This Year’s Schooner Festival which To Me Is THE STORY of this year’s Schooner Festival (along with the first annual lobster bake on Harriett Webster Pier)
