This One I've Sailed

This one Hubs and I actually crewed on, BC (Before Children). It's a gaff topsail schooner named Adventuress and they have a sail training program that I participated in as a working chaperone for a crew of Mariner Girl Scouts many, many years ago. We impressed quite a few people when we pulled into the dock at Victoria, B.C., and they realized the crew were all girls! Adventuress is a National Historic Landmark and takes out schools, youth groups, individuals, and families. Their website is WARNING: This is not a "barefoot cruise." It takes the muscle of the entire crew to raise the gaff-rigged main! And you're the crew. :)
