Adventuress is BACK!

Adventuress "splashes!"
So much happened in March, we thought a little summary would be nice.  So, here it goes:

On March 14, Adventuress "splashed" back into Puget Sound after four months of exciting and extensive restoration at Haven Boatworks in Port Townsend.  Kudos to our amazing winter Captain Joshua Berger, Restoration Manager Korie Griffith, hardworking crew and hearty volunteers who dedicated their time and resources to making this winter a success.

Soon after the boat hit the water, the Crew took Adventuress out for a "shake down" sail to make sure everything was working fine before the sailing season began.  Captain Joshua, who will be co-Captain for the 2011 sailing season, drove Adventuress out into Port Townsend Bay.  It was a stunning day for a first sail!

Captain Daniel Evans, who recently returned from the Bahamas to Co-Captain for a second season, took Adventuress out for the first Public Sail of the season.  He was later quoted in a Peninsula Daily News article saying the boat is excellent shape!

The last week of March saw the arrival and training of the new Crew.  They came brimming with talent, knowledge and eagerness to sail Adventuress.  The 2011 Season One Crew is a mix of new and veteran crew.

Check out their bios on our website.

Finally, our March "Grow the Family" Membership Drive was a resounding success!  Thanks to your tremendous support, there are now 113 new and renewed card-carrying members of Sound Experience!  Thank you for choosing our family.

We're heading your way!
We have an incredibly exciting sailing season coming up.  Public Sails are already selling out; spots have been reserved on almost all overnight programs for teens, families and adults; and Adventuress is out there now, educating kids and adults while sailing Puget Sound.

We can't wait to see you aboard very soon.

The Board, Staff & Crew of Adventuress & Sound Experience
