We have been really busy since we became a charter business on Friday afternoon. We had our first customer Ethel Rhodes of Gloucester who joined us on our first -ever charter sail. Yesterday was Heritage Day at Maritime Gloucester and we had two public and one private charter. It was great...everyone enjoyed themselves. Today we had the entire building crew and their families out to race in the Schooner Festival. Although we did not finish in the top of the fleet, it was a great day and we were able to sail with our three fellow Essex-built, Burnham-built schooners the Thomas E. Lannon of Gloucester, the Fame of Salem and the Lewis H. Story.
