Expanding the Roseway Fleet?

Okay so we're not really expanding the fleet but we did just receive a very generous gift from the Leinbach Family for our upcoming auction fundrasier on January 23rd: A 30-foot center-consul sloop! She's in good shape, especially since our crew has been getting her prettied up. Yesterday everyone donned mask and snorkel and spent the afternoon scraping her hull which had several years worth of growth on it, including what appeared to be an entire mussel farm. But she's clean now and soon we'll be taking her for a test sail!

It's been a great project for the crew and hopefully they'll get to test her out a bit before she get's passed on to a new home. We're so grateful for this gift not only because it's a fun one, but because it's a great way to benefit the World Ocean School and all the super kids we serve!
