Charlestowne Landing S/V Adventure

The Post and Courier is reporting the arrival of the ketch rigged Adventure.

Adventure is a 53-foot historic replica of an 18th century colonial trading vessel designed by the late William Baker. She will replace the replica that sank in 2004 at the Charlestowne River landing.

Adventure is built almost entirely out of oak, from her massive, double-sawn frames to her planking. She is rigged as a ketch, and will carry square sails on her main mast.

On Saturday October 25, 2008 Adventure departed the City Marina heading for her permanent home at Charlestowne River Landing.
