Experience the Launching of the Ardelle in Essex on July 9!

Just adjacent to the Essex Shipbuilding Museum, the schooner, Ardelle, is set for an historic side launch on July  9 between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. and several Cape Ann Television volunteers are set to help chronicle the exciting event! In the 19th century, when Essex shipyards operated at the height of their production, they used a basic science to a successful launch: grease, gravity and momentum. On July 9, they will apply this science of launching the Pinky Ardelle, a full-scale historic representation passenger vessel. Festivities begin at 3:30 p.m. with musical entertainment by Michael Forney and his Bluegrass Band and refreshments are available.
