They were doing some big time work up in the rigging. This cat was way up there disconnecting some stays that connected the two masts. Barefoot. My knees would be knocking so hard if I got 10 feet off the ground, never-mind way up at the top of the mast like this. Schooner Festival is coming this weekend- don’t forget! If you haven’t been down to see it yet we have some insider tips coming for you later from Daisy Nell, Chairperson of the Gloucester Schooner Festival 09
