|Mid-coast, MAINE— The Maine Windjammer Association will host the 8th annual Maine Windjammer Parade past the Rockland Breakwater on July 13 from 2:00-4:00 pm. Geared for both spectators on shore and windjammer guests, the event will provide close-up views of the entire fleet as it sails within a stone’s throw of the Rockland Breakwater Light.
The afternoon event will also include tours of the Lighthouse, a flyover by the Owls Head Transportation Museum and free shuttle service between Harbor Plaza (behind Machias Savings Bank) and the Breakwater parking area. For spectators who need help distinguishing a ketch from a schooner or a coaster from a pilot boat, Captain Jim Sharp of the Sail, Power and Steam Museum will narrate the parade over a PA system at the Lighthouse.
|On Saturday, July 14 from 2:00-4:00 pm, the Rockland windjammers in the Maine Windjammer Association will host Open Schooner Tours. Visitors can stop by North End Shipyard and Windjammer Wharf (off Tillson Avenue) for tours of the American Eagle, Heritage, Isaac H. Evans, Nathaniel Bowditch and Stephen Taber.
