Cargo Schooner Avontuur

The Schooner Avontuur arrived Tuesday, and works as a cargo ship. Originally from the Netherlands, it was in regular cargo service between 1920 and 2005. After working as a day sailer for a few years, in 2014 it became an ambassador for wind powered global trade. 

the ship had a very nautical entry to port over the noon hour, with the pilots guiding the ship into port via radio from the pilot station, before boarding just inbound of Maugers Beach. The ship tied up at pier 25.
