In case you don't listen to the news, the schooner Adventuress (133-foot historic sailboat) ran aground at about noon in Wasp Passage between Orcas and Shaw Islands in the San Juan Islands while sailing on a school trip. This unfortunate mishap was reported on CNN, Kiro 7, Seattle Times - just about everywhere (must be a slow news day).
The Adventuress was scheduled to participate in the Victoria, B.C., Tall Ships festival Thursday through Sunday and the Tacoma Tall Ships Festival July 3-7, where it would also celebrate its 95th birthday.
Vessel Assist was able to free the vessel a couple of hours later on a rising tide. It then motored under its own power to Friday Harbor for inspection.
