Scene in Edmonds: Historic schooner passes by

The Adventuress sailed past Edmonds Marina Saturday afternoon. The schooner was commissioned in 1913 and built by the Rice Brothers of East Boothbay, Maine. During its history, it has traveled to Alaska and spent a good portion of its time in California before arriving in Seattle in 1952. It has had many changes of ownership and gone through several remodels, the last bringing it closer to its original design.The Adventuress is owned by nonprofit Sound Experience, which uses it as an educational venue to improve maritime safety, careers and stewardship in the Salish Sea area.

  1. What a treat indeed! I saw her years ago in Port Townsend, and the sight of the Adventuress is still thrilling!

  2. I crewed on the Adventuress my 16th summer. The Girl Scout Council ownedit at that time what an experience. I am sad to see they painted the hull white. It was a signature dark blue from the time it was built until now. One of the ways you always knew it was the Adventuress. Stilll great to see it sailing and educating
