Oh, the canvas can do miracles: Great Schooner Race Recap
credit: Fred LeBlanc
After crossing the finish line at the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse, Maine Windjammer Association fleet boats sail into Rockland Harbor.

Christopher Cross sang, “Well, it's not far down to paradise, at least it's not for me. And if the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility. Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see. Believe me.” And canvases sure flew in July during the Great Schooner Race, as those who read the fluky wind found in exultant wins.

Maine Windjammer Association featured on The Jet Set TV show
In June, a crew from The Jet Set, a fresh new hybrid talk and travel TV show syndicated throughout the country, joined the Maine Windjammer Association aboard the schooner Heritage. With drones and several cameras in hand, what resulted was an up-close-and-personal account of a first-timer host who fell in love with windjamming and the annual Gam gathering.
It’s not too late for an August cruise & it’s not too early to plan a fall cruise
We often hear that guests are afraid that there’ll be no room on the windjammers at the last minute. While space is limited for some cruises, the boats in the Maine Windjammer Association fleet still have some availability for August, September and even October cruises. We know wind and weather play into your travel plans, so next time you see a stretch of fair weather, don’t hesitate to call your favorite windjammer and inquire on availability.
Fresh from the Galley – Ice Cream
Since July is National Ice Cream Month, we thought this would be the prefect time to share recipes for homemade ice cream. Sail aboard some of the Maine Windjammer Association fleet’s schooners and windjammers, and you may be able to take part in hand-cranking ice cream for the whole boat, right up on deck!
