Happy New Year!

Yes, it IS a Happy New Year!


Many Ernestina supporters rose to Bob’s challenge and in one short month we have raised over $14,000!   SEMA is looking forward to 2012 surpassing 2011 in progress toward getting Ernestina sailing again.    We will begin formulating a major fundraising campaign in anticipation of the estimates being prepared by Shipwright Leon Poindexter.   The work needed has been specified by Coast Guard requirements,  surveys by Captain Paul Haley, and thorough inspections by a naval architect and a marine engineer.  The final reports and estimates will be presented to the Schooner Ernestina Commission soon.

If you have fundraising experience and would like to help please CONTACT us.
