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.

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.
Short film in progress. Could it have been a more perfect day? Happy Schooner Festival everyone!
Schooner Roseway and Schooner Mystic

Started out overcast then started to rain, but just as I was ready to head for cover, the sun came out and the coyote jumped for joy. So beautiful to see all those schooners.
Special thanks to Bob Hastings and the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce for inviting GMG aboard to bring it to you FIRST!
