Society Board Announces November 30 Christening of Endeavor 2
The Board of the JVD Preservation Society is happy to announce the christening of its traditional-lines sloop, Endeavour 2, which has been under construction for several years. The Christening will include the celebration party hosted by the Society. “It is a big project for a small non-profit, but we know that it will become a memorable icon for the maritime traditions of Jost van Dyke and the Virgin Islands as well as serving today’s youth as a floating classroom,” says Board member Bruce Donath. Launch is planned for mid-November depending on tides and equipment scheduling to get the sloop to the beach and into the water.
