Adventuress Cup Benefit Race.
Photo Sound Experience.
The 4th annual Adventuress Cup benefit race will be held on Saturday, September 16 this year, with on the water racing at Shilshole Bay in Seattle. I am looking forward to being aboard the tall ship, and race committee boat, Adventuress, for the Cup race this year! See SoundExp.org.
This race is a celebration of the marine environment and aims to raise critical program funds for the nonprofit Sound Experience, which owns and operates the iconic tall ship, Adventuress.
The ship’s programs reach more than a thousand children and teens each year who climb aboard for powerful day and overnight programs in maritime skills, environmental stewardship, resilience, and connection to each other and the natural world. Other traditional programs for all ages, and threevhour day sails are coming back on the post-pandemic schedule.
This is a hybrid race! There will be a parade of boats, including power. On the water racing of dingy class, spinnaker class, and non-flying sail class will be offered. Virtual teams will be raising money for the programs, and individuals can donate without being on a team. Anyone can donate, join a virtual team with a donation, or form their own team.
All vessels which race or register as a team are required to use the Kwindoo Tracking app during the race. Virtual participants can track the fun on the Kwindoo LiveView app or on Kwindoo.com — instructions for use will be sent to all registered participants.
More information will be posted – watch for the Fourth Annual Adventuress Cup website. Stay tuned for more details at SoundExp.org!
