Freya Sailing to Gwynn’s Island

John Bonner departed on his drive to Florida this morning! He was pulling a trailer loaded with tools and gear that will be used before and during the voyage up to Virginia. He will meet with his brother Bob and crew in St. Augustine where the journey will begin.

A cinematographer will accompany John along the way, and Dave Miller will meet him once Freya reaches the Chesapeake Bay. Dave will be making aerial footage for his documentary film “Gilbert Klingel: Man of Steel“.

Freya is scheduled to arrive home on May 27, 2017! She will be berthed at the historic boatyard where Gilbert Klingel built her during 1953 (now the Gwynn’s Island Boatyard). There will be a major celebration upon her arrival, so please stay tuned!
