WTF? (What’s the Futtock?)

Welcome to Sea-Fever School, the best of online maritime culture education!

Today’s lesson comes to us from the National Historic Landmark schooner Adventuress and the amazing sail training / environmental education program, Sound Experience.

Pay attention, there may be a pop quiz later.

By the way, Sound Experience is running a contest on their Facebook page to give away a sail to a lucky winner and 44 of their friends and/or family. All you have to do is head over there and become a fan.  And while you’re at it, follow them on Twitter too!
