September 15-17: YMC Capstone Multi-Day Experience Aboard the schooner Adventuress
On this three-day, two-night program aboard the schooner Adventuress, you’ll take part in all aspects of sailing and operating this traditional gaff-rigged sailboat. Professional crew and mentors share traditional and contemporary maritime skills, including climbing the rigging and sailing the ship, which require teamwork and hands-on participation. Sailing each day and anchoring at night, you’ll practice navigation, line handling and steering, and learn about the marine environment and regulations in place to protect natural resources. The program has space for 20 Youth Maritime Collaborative participants and begins and ends at Shilshole Bay Marina in Seattle. Built in 1913, Adventuress is a National Historic Landmark ship owned and operated by the nonprofit Sound Experience, emphasizing education and environmental stewardship.
