Hi Joey ____
The upcoming Schooner Festival got some notice at Mystic Seaport last month at the WoodenBoat Show. Here’s Capt. Nicholas Alley, schooner BRILLIANT, signing up for a return visit this year.
BRILLIANT, owned and operated by Mystic Seaport, is one of the world’s most beautiful classic boats. Keeping her in tip top condition is no small challenge, and the Seaport depends on income from charters to defray expense. When she visits Gloucester BRILLIANT is forgoing income more easily earned in her home port. Right now she has six berths available for the trip to Gloucester and eight for the return. A trip on BRILLIANT with her congenial and capable crew is a truly great experience. Here’s a link to her website.
I got this photo of BRILLIANT heading back to Mystic after last year’s Schooner Festival. And by the way, Capt. Alley is a previous winner of the Mayor’s Race here when he was in command of VIRGINIA.
