Fleet Events in June

Here are the occasions attended by Maine Windjammers this June.

Schooner Gam Week of June 18

A gathering of the Maine Schooners at anchor with a fleet raft-up.

Windjammer Days in Boothbay Harbor Week of June 25

A town wide celebration in Boothbay featuring a sail parade and fireworks. Large sailing ships from elsewhere sometimes participate. Some in the Maine Fleet do not attend this event. It requires some offshore sailing, often to windward for a significant stretch.

First up will be the next installment of Windjammer vs. Windjammer.

Ice Age

Due to massive ice accumulation this blogger has temporarily slowed his posting frequency. Meanwhile, take a look at this photo of Stephen Taber as she sails past an ultra modern trimaran and out of Rockland Harbor on July 2nd of last year.. Isn't that nice?
