New Suit of Sails for Adventure
Thanks to a generous $65,000 grant received this past summer, the Schooner Adventure will soon sport a new suit of sails.
World-renowned sailmaker Nathaniel Wilson of East Boothbay, Maine, will be making Adventure’s new sails. Nathaniel is internationally recognized for constructing historically accurate sails for all types of traditional sailing vessels, including the U.S.S. Constitution, the Godspeed and, more recently, the schooner Stephen Taber.
A full suit of schooner sails will include a mainsail, foresail, staysail, jib, fisherman staysail and gaff topsail. They will be made from Oceanus cloth, a strong and durable polyester sailcloth made specifically for traditional sailing yachts and training vessels.
