Community Boat Project
Felicity Ann Coordinator
Port Hadlock, WA
Shelly joined the Community Boat Project to help steward the 23' sloop Felicity Ann, which Ann Davison sailed into history as the first woman to single-hand the Atlantic in 1953. The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding has rebuilt her from the keel up, and she makes her public debut at WBFest17! Shelly sailed into Port Townsend as crew aboard the schooner Adventuress nearly 20 years ago and never left. As a communicator and community builder, she has been involved in many local maritime programs, and has had her writing and photos published in many maritime magazines, including Sea and WoodenBoat. She is a graduate of the Williams College-Mystic Seaport Maritime Studies program.
