BELFAST — Come Boating!, Belfast’s community boating organization, and the Belfast Free Library are teaming up once again to offer the Winter Adventure Series. This year the series of three evening programs about adventures on the water will be offered virtually over Zoom.

The first program, Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 6:30 p.m., will feature a slide presentation with Jonathan Fulford titled, “Around Newfoundland in a Small Boat.” To register, visit and find the listing.

This past summer, long-time environmental activist and experienced sailor Jonathan Fulford sailed the Dawn B from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, around Newfoundland, and back to Belfast, a 2800 nm adventure. Over the summer, 20 different people joined him to sail legs of this trip, 10 of them from Midcoast Maine.

On the journey they sailed with humpback whales and white beaked dolphins, among northern gannets and puffins, and ate their fill of cod. The crew visited many fishing villages, island communities, and the city of St. John. The impact of climate change was evident from the stories they heard from fishermen and Newfoundlanders throughout the province.

The Winter Adventure Series continues Tuesday, Feb. 21, with a presentation by sisters Clare and Leigh Dorsey about their 2022 Race to Alaska; and Tuesday, March 21, Arista Holden will give a presentation on The Atlantic Challenge Contest of Seamanship that is coming to Belfast in July 2024.
