The crew of the Adventuress serenaded visitors with sea chanteys at the Ballard Locks this morning on its way to the Center for Wooden Boats.
The 97-year-old tall ship is one of 25 finalists hoping to win a $125,000 Partners in Preservation grant. Crewmembers on the Adventuress made a plea to spectators to vote for the 133-foot boat. Today is the last day for voting.
The Adventuress is owned and operated by the non-profit group Sound Experience. If you’d like a dockside tour, the schooner will be open for tours today from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Center for Wooden Boats (1010 Valley St). (Disclosure: Partners in Preservation is a sponsor of MyBallard.)
