Room At The Mark

Room At The Mark

“Room At The Mark” depicts the schooner Adventurer rounding the last turning mark in the 2022 Gloucester Schooner Festival Race. I had the privilege of being a crew member on my friend’s schooner, Adventurer, during the race. Brilliant had rounded the mark wide and left us an opening that we shot through. Columbia had already rounded and was ahead of us but was in irons as she backwinded her jib to get on the final course to the finish. I remember looking up from my position on the port side and seeing a huge wall of white sails ahead. Our helmsman told me he was very nervous as he steered Adventurer between the two much bigger yachts and the mark. It was a successful and exciting rounding - great memories.
