Passenger Vessel Certificate Issued!
This is a momentous day in the history of the schooner Adventure. Today she was issued a Passenger Vessel certificate by the Coast Guard, and is now fully able to fulfill the vision expressed by Joe Garland and his small group of committed individuals when they brought the ship home to Gloucester in 1988. Above all, it is a day to give thanks- to supporters and staff, shipwrights and sailors, but particularly to the hundreds of volunteers who have given countless hours of time and determined effort over so many years. We are deeply grateful to all, and this is but the first small acknowledgement of thanks. More will come.
Tomorrow the work continues, as we proceed toward fulfilling the ship’s mission to inspire and educate, and to share the heritage of Gloucester with the wide audience it deserves. Tonight we celebrate, and give thanks.
Hat’s off to all who have been involved with the project. Tonight we hope you get to take a moment to savor this milestone.Read More News
