This trip is an amazing trip to be able to see these vessels up close!

Not much happening in Gloucester these days is there?
Nothing to do, ho hum. Bahahahahahahah!
Hey you, yeah you sitting in that chair wishing you were here in the middle of the action! The fun isn’t over yet! We still have a Block Party right around the corner and a whole lot more fun stuff coming up. The fun doesn’t stop just because labor Day is over. This town has some killer community event every single weekend of the year. You need help with accommodations or finding out stuff to do? Check out The Chamber of Commerce Website or Discover Gloucester or GloucesterMa.com to get the latest skinny on what’s happening round town. Or of course you could check out our little ol blog.
Thank you to Bob Hastings and The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce for inviting us aboard to cover the race.
