There was a stiff wind blowing across Gloucester Harbor on Monday evening when FAME, THOMAS E LANNON and ARDELLE raced in the annual Schooner Challenge. The racing rules were A)suspended, B) ignored or C) never known by any of the captains. Nevertheless, the exciting 2 hour run benefited the Essex Shipbuilding Museum.www.essexshipbuildingmuseum.org
Join us now aboard the Salem berthed FAME for the race and excitement

This group of buccaneers staged a brief mutiny on board Ardelle last Friday when they refused to disembark from the vessel upon its return to Maritime Gloucester after a beautiful harbor cruise.
The mutineers, from Denver, Colorado and points west, explained that they had such a good time, they didn’t want to leave.
