Bowsprit

“Spirit was surveyed and inspected by the American Bureau of Shipping’s surveyor and they gave us full certification to operate. The Bermuda Sloop Foundation is looking forward to doing the permanent repair work to the bowsprit in the spring of 2018 before the overseas voyages.

“The captain and crew are excited to welcome the first group of students from Dellwood School onboard the Spirit of Bermuda next week. Parents and families should be assured that the ship is safe; it underwent a high standard of inspection for the ship to be fully operational. The safety of all students, teachers and crew continues to be our top priority.

“We hope all the new student trainees have an experience of a lifetime on Spirit as we begin the new academic school year.

“Thank you to the Bermuda public, Bermuda Sloop Foundation members and authorities for their ongoing support in this matter. Welcome aboard all M3 students!”
