Schooner Adventuress Grounded

Tugboats tie on to the schooner Adventuress after it ran aground Monday, at Orcas Island. No injuries were reported when the 95-year-old schooner ran aground at about noon in Wasp Passage in the San Juan Islands while sailing on a school trip. Adventuress grounded near Orcas Island could still make it to this weekend's tall ships festival in Victoria. It's scheduled to be hauled out of the water for a Coast Guard inspection Tuesday at Port Townsend. Divers who took the first look at the hull found no damage. The 95-year-old schooner is operated by the Port Townsend-based Sound Experience nonprofit for maritime and environmental education.
