GloucesterTimes.com: It took nearly 20 people just to raise the main sail, which measures 2,100 square feet.
But for the first time in nearly two decades, the 122’ schooner Adventure sailed in Gloucester Harbor [Massachusetts] Saturday (August 24, 2013) with its 5,500 total square feet of sail. The Adventure also is poised to not only head the Parade of Sail in this coming weekend’s Gloucester Schooner Festival, but will join in the festival’s races thus reviving a piece of the city’s maritime history.
