Great Schooner Race Recap

credit: Meg Maiden
Schooner crews participated in the 2nd Annual Sail, Paddle or Swim Small Boat Race. A good time was had by all!

The results are in and the 37th annual Great Schooner Race was a huge success. Guests and crews were favored with picture-perfect weather and a light breeze as they made their way from Gilkey Harbor to Rockland. Spectators on the Breakwater had front-row seats at the finish line. Special thanks go the Captain Jim and Meg Sharp for hosting the Awards Ceremony at the Sail, Power and Steam Museum.
