PHOTOS OF GLOUCESTER SCHOONER FEST CAPTAINS, CREW, AND COMMITTEE MEMBERS

Snapshots taken on race day, at the morning meeting of the captains and the evening’s closing ceremony, and a few the day before. So many thanks to Al Bezanson for introductions, his much appreciated knowledge and advice generously shared, and for being an all around great guy. I’ve tried to accurately caption; click on the photo to read the captain’s names and their schooners.

A Windy and Wet Parade of Sails…Beautiful as Ever

The boys and I were lucky enough to catch a ride with some friends yesterday to get up close and personal with some of the schooners that paraded in the harbor yesterday afternoon.  The other side of the breakwater was a bit unforgiving in regards to photo ops, but it is always…regardless of the weather…wonderful to be in the midst of those gorgeous ships.

The 30th Annual Gloucester Schooner Festival and Parade of Sails is Just Around the Corner!

In checking the Schooner Festival schedule for friends who are visiting during that time, I realized the event will be here very soon. Sponsored by Maritime Gloucester, tickets aboard Gloucester’s gorgeous hometown schooners for the Parade of Sails can be purchased by clicking these links: Schooner Thomas E. Lannon and Schooners Ardelle and Roseway. Click here for special viewing opportunities at the Beauport Sleeper McCann Museum.

Al Bezanson provided the names of the schooners, in order of appearance:

Sugar Babe
Adventure
Thomas E Lannon
Adirondack III
Brilliant
Virginia,
Tillicum I
Lewis H Story
Liberty Clipper
Perception
Light Reign
American Eagle

Thanks Al!
