Dean, one of the many workers and volunteers at Mystic Seaport who put in many, many hours of manual labor to get the Charles W. Morgan ready to sail this summer. She’s currently in New London, being fitted out for her journey through New England this summer. Very exciting! You can see her voyage itinerary HERE. posted […]
