Adventure Sails Again!!!!

On August 10, 2013, Adventure sailed again for the first time in 19 years. The 2 hours prior to this shakedown cruise, we were busy finishing up getting her ready. All the hard work paid off, and the cruise went wonderfully.

We still have a bit more to do to be completely down with the restoration and get our passenger certification, but the end is in sight. Any and all support to get us to that end would be greatly appreciated.
