During the 2016 Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, annual donors to Sound Experience and the Schooner Adventuress gather to celebrate the past year's accomplishments and hear what's next for this beloved ship and non-profit organization.

As a volunteer mentor on Adventuress this summer for Girls at the Helm program and as a long-time supporter of the outstanding programs for "youth of all ages" on Adventuress, I am honored to participate as special guest this year - thanking donors whose contributions make these life-changing programs possible.

I'll share a little about my new book, Finding Pax, and a lot about the empowering role historic vessels and strong experiential programs play in preparing the next generation of mariners, authors, leaders, scientists, and more! 

This 103 year old vessel and her inspired and competent crew inspires literally thousands of people a year. To join the Centennial Circle, contact Catherine at soundexp.org.
