Well from the numbers I’m seeing around town and on the water I’d say that Al Bezanson and my monthlong push to make people aware of the Schooner Festival had a bit of an impact on those regular folks outside of the regular Schooner circles showing up.

The Bounty leaving Gloucester From Christopher Lewis
You may like these two photos of HMS Bounty leaving Gloucester on Monday morning. They show how large this schooner is. In the first photo you can compare the Bounty to the "Tuscan House" on Rocky Neck. The second photo compares Bounty with a foreground of small boats and a background of the Boulevard – a truly remarkable sight.
Take care — Christopher
