Hear from the men and women of Gloucester how she survived to become a National Historic Landmark - and an American Treasure! Adventure, her city, and the sea come alive in this powerful documentary. As Senator Ted Kennedy, himself a dedicated sailor, wrote: "Adventure is a defining jewel in the whole spectacle of America...a wonderful, wonderful educational instrument." Written by John J. Ronan
