Check Out the Launch of the Schooner Ardelle on July 9 at high tide early evening

The schooner Isabella launched in August 2006. The Ardelle is over 10 feet longer

The Isabella launch was great. Aug. 2006. This photo was taken by Todd Harrington

The Isabella was 38 feet, the Ardelle is 50 feet. This photo was taken by SAIL magazine. Harold is in the red shirt and will be  the last one near the boat just before it slides down the ways..leaning  farther and father before it hits the water. It is.  a nail biting experience to watch, believe me!

Launch Day is very hectic!
 Get ready for a good day on Saturday, July 9 as the schooner Ardelle will be launched at high tide around 6 p.m. Here are some photos of the Isabella launching in 2006...the Ardelle is a bigger boat and the whole process on launch day is a bit scary but also incredibly exciting. It is really a rare thing to see but worth every minute. Stay tuned.
Here is the schooner FAME sailing. She was launched in June 2003.
