Schooner Adventure: Free sails for descendants of men who worked, sailed, and fished on board any Gloucester schooner.

August 17 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm

As part of her mission of preserving and promoting this heritage, Adventure offers free sails to descendants of men who worked, sailed, and fished on board any Gloucester schooner. This year these Descendants’ Sails are scheduled for Thursday, June 2 at 5 PM, Sunday, July 17 at 11 AM and Wednesday August 17, at 4:30 PM. To confirm descendant status and receive information about how to book a spot, the number to call is 978-281-8079.

In addition to Public Sails, Adventure is available for private charters, corporate outings, and educational programs. Volunteer crew and docents are always needed to help maintain and sail the vessel and share the rich maritime heritage with students and passengers. Interested in learning about getting more involved with Adventure? Please contact: info@schooner-adventure.org or call 978-281-8079.

Consult Adventure’s website booking calendar about her sailing schedule, to purchase tickets, and for sailing FAQ. Join the Adventure and become a member for free and reduced-price sailing tickets. It’s a great way to show support for the only 501(c)3 non-profit vessel on the North Shore! www.schooner-adventure.org

When she isn’t out sailing off Cape Ann, Schooner Adventure is docked at Harriet Webster Pier off Harbor Loop in downtown Gloucester. Interested folks are encouraged to stop by for a visit and talk to her Captain and Crew about taking a sail. Visitors and locals alike won’t want to miss Adventure this season!
