2012 Gloucester Schooner Race Results From Al Bezanson

Joey…..Terrific coverage here on the Parade of Sail, but for those interested in the race itself the information has been sparse and late coming.  In the past the Times has had good reporting on the race but none this year.  The Race Committee had a real challenge from a fizzling breeze that backed away from the SSE where it started and half the entries were unable to finish within the four hour time limit.  Or they just fired up their engines so as not to be late for the 6:00 PM post-race festivities at Maritime Gloucester.  (Good judgment.)

The hospitality extended to visiting schooners this year was extra special.  Here is a little story on the American Schooner Association website.

  • Great post Al. It’s hard to believe there wasn’t much race coverage or timely race results from the GDT. When customers asked me in the gallery who finished first, I had no clue. Your links the the American Schooner Association website filled in the blanks. I’m very happy to hear that the vessels here for the race thought we were good hosts. Maybe next year we can do even better!
