ADVENTURER is a John Alden Malabar VI with a traditional gaff fore and main. Formerly known as FREYA, she was built and launched in Mystic, CT, for Dr. Albert Whitney, she was commissioned in 1926, and continuously sailed and raced by six previous owners. Mark Faulstick, her current owner for more than 20 years, had her extensively rebuilt in 1992, and has been a participant in the GCBSR nearly every year since 1995. She has claimed six firsts, the last in 2011, three seconds and one third in class B, and one overall in 2001. Well-maintained and still in top condition, she continues actively sailing and competing in schooner races along the Atlantic East coast and the Caribbean.
