Best Windjammer Watching on the Planet in Rockland, Maine

credit: Bob Angell

Acres of canvas will be flying as North America’s largest fleet of traditional windjammers struts past the Rockland Breakwater on the first two Fridays in July during their two signature summer events. These two events combined offer spectators one of the best historic windjammer viewing opportunities on the planet!

Maine Windjammer Association welcomes two new (small) boats to the fleet
Over last winter, Lewis R. French Captain, Garth Wells and Stephen Taber Captain, Noah Barnes, both took to their workshops to build very special boats with, believe it or not, a Harry Potter theme. With help from the youngest of crew, these two captains welcomed Snitch and Seeker to the Maine Windjammer fleet this spring. Built with heart and sole (pun intended!) read on about these very special father-and-son undertakings.
An Armchair Tour of the Gam
On a beautiful night in mid-June, eight gorgeous windjammers gathered together for the annual Gam in Carver Cove on the Northern end of Vinalhaven. Under starry skies, about 200 guests toasted with grog to an exciting 2018 sailing season. Historic Maine windjammers recreating a traditionally British tradition was one of the highlights of the season for the Maine Windjammer Association. A number of photographers on board captured the impressive gathering. Read on to see a photo tour of the gathering.
Fresh from the Galley – Appetizers
One of the best times of day on board the Maine Windjammer Association boats is happy hour. This happens right after the boat settles into another gorgeous harbor or cove, and before it’s time to go exploring. Each of the Maine Windjammer Association boats has its own collection of specialty appetizers. Here are a few you can try at home or might be treated to on your next cruise.
