Sunday afternoon sail with Celtic music. Gloucester is magical but this sail was everyone's favorite event of the weekend. New family tradition for our Fall Fest. Thank you to the best captain and crew. Rum punch! Yum

We loved the Captain and his seagull Polly Five Toes; also the rum punch at 10am. You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning! This was our second visit in several years and we will come back again.
