Video:2014 Schooner Challenge, Aboard the Thomas E Lannon

Despite a snagged anchor and a misplaced cannon fuse,the Schooner Thomas E Lannon was first across the finish line in last night’s Schooner Challenge in Gloucester harbor, beating out Ardelle and Fame. See the drama here! As for the song writing and marlinspike seamanship competitions, you be the judge.
