Schooner Adix

Saw Adix while Scout and I were sailing up The Reach, and by the time we came in, Adix had dropped her anchor near the mouth of Center Harbor. Steel-hulled, modeled on the 1903 schooner Atlantic, built in Mallorca in the 1980s, rigged in the UK. 
Book plug: the first couple chapters of my novel Carry Me are set in Atlantic's world of schooner racing, at Cowes Week on the Isle of Wight, summers 1910-1913. Signed first editions of the book at Betsy's Sunflower in Brooklin ME and Blue Hill Books in Blue Hill ME.
