Peter Souza, Three Sheets to the Wind
Friday, July 14th, 2017
Three Sheets to the Wind is an old sailing term and refers to a ship whose sheets (lines) have come loose, causing the sails to flap uncontrolled and the ship to shudder and roll like an uncontrolled drunk. It is also a Gloucester chantey/sea music group. Many of the group have years of song and sea history behind them. They love to interact with the audience to create a perfect storm of song and good cheer.
The Schooner Adventure, a 122 ft historic wooden dory fishing schooner, is listed on the National register of Historic Places, an Official Project of Save America’s Treasures, and the flagship of Gloucester, Massachusetts, America’s oldest fishing port, founded in 1623. She is being restored to serve as an educational resource and living monument to Massachusetts’ fishing heritage and to the over 5,000 fishermen who sailed out of Gloucester and never returned.
