The Endeavor


One of the big excursions during my days
on Nantucket will be taking a sailing cruise aboard

The Endeavor, a 31-foot replica Friendship sloop,
gives informative tours around the harbor and sound by 
Captain James Genther who, with 25 years of experience, 
aptly informs his passengers about Nantucket's maritime 
history and various waterfront spots along the island.

I, for one, am incredibly excited to hop on board this
ship because, a.) I've never been on sailboat before and 
have always dreamed to, and b.) what is a more beautiful 
way to see the island of Nantucket than from the sea?

The only thing that may stop me from doing this is the weather,
but so far the forecast looks pretty good, so I'm crossing my fingers!


3 more days!


  1. What a wonderful way to see the Island! That's something I've never done either (a sharp reminder of my "washashore" status here)! ;)

  2. I have never been on a sailboat before either..., and one day I will go on a little cruise like this -maybe I'd get sea sick! Got sea sick on the ferry ride to Block Island, there was fog though.

  3. That looks so AWESOME! Have fun! And tell us all about it when you get back. :)

  4. We went sailing a couple of years ago when we went to Camden Maine for a holiday-it was a real treat!
    Hope the weather holds for you.


  5. Even the word Nantucket just sounds gorgeous. Have a fab trip.

  6. That boat looks awesome! I am sure that will be a relaxing trip. Enjoy!

  7. Hi Erin! We did the same thing about 10 years ago off Martha's Vineyard, aboard the Shenandoah when staying with's really wonderful and should be a marvellously memorable part of your trip! We just got back from a week on a 4 masted Clipper sailing ship around the Mediterranean - I was a bit queasy at the start, but I found that if you stay up on deck (which I'm sure you'll do anyway - the views!) and breathe deeply, you'll be fine! Can't wait to hear all about it sweetie! xoxo Rachel

  8. I love your descriptions of the plans you have for your Nantucket trip. It all sounds so wonderful!
    Where I live the Pineapple Ketch and the Eleanor Schooner offer similar cruises. I love to see them though have never been on one!
    Enjoy your trip and am looking forward to hearing more about it when you return!

  9. You've gotten me excited about your trip too. I'm certain that you'll use your camera well and let us all enjoy your adventure right along with you.

  10. Oh my gosh how cool will this be?? Wish I could come with...but will enjoy it through your blog and photos... I can't wait either...

    xoxo Gert

  11. The weather will hold because you want to go aboard so much! Not to worry. Make sure someone takes pictures of you while sailing.

  12. Have a wonderful trip can't wait to hear all about it.
