Hoisting the Sails

This past week I was invited by FOB Adam Bolonsky to sail the Schooner Adventure to take photos and write a bit for Good Morning Gloucester.Schooner Adventure Gloucester August 5th -14 ©Kim Smith 2015

Sailing aboard the Adventure I felt transported to another time and place. Exhilarating, yet peaceful, the ship possesses a splendid grace and steadfastness. What a treasured gift to have had this experience. Thank you, thank you Captain Edick, Adam, and crew for a truly memorable afternoon. I can’t wait to adventure aboard the Adventure again!

With sunny and blue skies above, along with a moderately strong wind, Captain Edick remarked that it was perhaps the best sail of the summer.

Experiential learning is at the core of Adventure’s mission. Volunteer Adam Bolonsky teaches young sailors how to navigate Gloucester Harbor.

In June, the Adventure was issued her Passenger Vessel Certificate by the Coast Guard. The member sails have become so popular dates have been added every week in August and early September.

Saturday she participated in the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta in Marblehead. The vessel is a floating museum and classroom and there are plans to sail to nearby ports from where the Adventure used to sail as a fishing boat including Boston, New York, New Bedford, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and Portland.
