What is The Adventuress Cup?
The Adventuress Cup is a new, inclusive, feel-good event that celebrates our marine environment and aims to raise critical program funds for the nonprofit Sound Experience which owns and operates the iconic tall ship, Adventuress. The event replaces the organization’s fall gala which in recent years has raised more than $150,000 to provide critical support for youth education aboard Adventuress, including its popular Girls at the Helm program.

How is The Adventuress Cup "Covid safe"?
All Adventuress Cup activities will follow safety guidelines and procedures from the CDC, USCG, and WA State Department of Health and will not include land-based events. To learn more about Sound Experience's policies and practices around Covid-19 please visit our Covid-19 Practices webpage.

How does The Adventuress Cup work?
Race participants can join the fun on the water or virtually. Each participant may be a part of a real or virtual crew. Crew members are encouraged to participate in peer-to-peer fundraising and environmental/education pre-race challenges to improve their boat’s handicap (or score). All participating boats must meet safety and other requirements outlined in the official Notice of Race (link below). All boats are welcome - sailboats of all sizes are encouraged to race and power boats are invited to join in a pre-race parade!

When and where is The Adventuress Cup?
The first annual Adventuress Cup will be held on Sunday September 20, 2020 at Shilshole Bay in Seattle. Sign up to receive Live Stream updates below!
