The Weather’s Great. Where’s the Ship?

The sailing season is coming, but don’t be fooled by today’s weather; we’re not quite there yet.  The Schooner SoundWaters is spending the winter on dry land, under wraps at Norwalk Cove Marina.  This is maintenance season and we’ve been sanding, painting, repairing and replacing in preparation for the arrival of the 2017 crew in three weeks.  The crew will peel back the winter cover, add another coat of paint, rig the spars and lines and lash on the sails in preparation for U.S. Coast Guard inspections.  Then it’s full speed ahead towards April 14th when we’ll sail with the Science Stars from our special girls in science program.  We look forward to a great Long Island Sound sailing season and hope to see you on board.
