We are now taking crew inquiries for the summer 2024 sailing season!
Adventure sails from June – September each year, doing a combination of public, educational charter and community sails. This summer we will be striving to offer free sails to local people from marginalized and underserved sectors of the community, as part of our belief that Adventure belongs to all of Gloucester and Cape Ann.
Adventure’s schedule is very dynamic, frequently shifting and evolving. In 2024, Adventure’s deck will be open for tours 7 days a week as well as sailing up to 6 days per week. Generally, sails are 2.5 hours with up to two sails/day with the occasional transit and 4 hour sail. Early season there are frequent full time and volunteer crew training sails and we strive to have a handful of crew only overnight trips to break up the day sail routine while in season.
