Save the Date: Launch Party, June 14!

Posted By on March 17, 2014



With the rigging fund at goal and progress booming along nicely, it looks like we can safely now announce the official launch and commissioning celebrations for Heron. Our first event of the year will be at the Kids’ Pirate Festival on Lake Champlain. We plan to launch her a few days ahead of time to let her planks swell and then sail to the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum at Vergennes, VT.

We are still finalizing our schedule of events for the summer but can confidently say that we have several more events already lined up on Lake Champlain and the New England seacoast. If you’re an event organizer who would like to invite us somewhere, please email for availability and rates.

Thank you all for helping out with this fantastic project – come see Heron in the water on June 14th and raise a glass to her future!
