NEF Cheers on Adam Cove's Journey in the Race to Alaska!!!

Greetings, fellow adventurers and sea lovers! Join us as we rally behind the intrepid Adam Cove, a beacon of courage and adventure, as he embarks on an exhilarating journey through the challenging waters of the Race to Alaska. Proudly supported by New England Foundry, Adam sets sail on this remarkable odyssey aboard the steadfast Marshall 18 Catboat "Wildcat," crafted by our friends at Marshall Marine and adorned with NEF castings.


From the tranquil harbor of Padanaram, Adam bids farewell to familiar shores and embraces the call of adventure with unwavering determination. Guided by the sturdy Wildcat, a masterpiece of maritime craftsmanship, Adam sets his sights on the distant horizon, ready to conquer the 750 nautical miles that stretch from Port Townsend, Washington to the rugged wilderness of Ketchikan, Alaska.


But Adam is no ordinary sailor – he is a modern-day explorer, fueled by a spirit of curiosity and a thirst for discovery. With each wave that crashes against his vessel and every gust of wind that fills his sails, Adam embraces the challenges of the open sea with courage and resilience, embodying the essence of adventure in its purest form.


As Adam's journey unfolds, we stand proudly beside him as steadfast supporters and admirers. While the allure of victory and glory beckons, we understand that for Adam, the true reward lies not in the destination, but in the journey itself – in the moments of solitude beneath the starlit sky, the breathtaking landscapes that unfold with each passing mile, and the bonds of camaraderie forged with fellow adventurers along the way.


So here's to Adam Cove, our fearless sailor and cherished friend! May the winds carry you swiftly toward your destination, the seas be kind and merciful, and the stars illuminate your path on this epic voyage. As you chart your course through the vast expanse of the Pacific Northwest, know that you carry with you the hopes and well-wishes of all of us here at New England Foundry.


Fair winds and following seas, Adam. We'll be cheering you on every nautical mile of the way!
