Captain Heath Ellis and crew of the Schooner Thomas E. Lannon

Hosted by the Schooner Festival Committee and Lenny Linquata of the Gloucester House Restaurant, the schooner fest captains and crew members were treated to a delicious and hardy breakfast this morning. Originally offered for a modest price, a rousing cheer was heard when it was announced breakfast was courtesy of the Schooner Festival Committee!

Thanks to the Schooner Festival Committee and to all the volunteers for all they do to bring this glorious event to Gloucester!

Parade of Sails spotters and sportscasters as classic as Red Sox announcers!

Gorgeous morning brings big crowds to the boulevard for Gloucester 34th Annual Schooner Festival Parade of Sails. Color announcing is always excellent Photo Left to right: Laura with blue phone- assuming husband Jim spotting and calling in- major intel and committee work from both; Daisy Nell-great musician, singer, author and maritime gloucester historian – no wonder her color is so crisp and clear; and Mike Costello, former Cape Ann Chamber Pres. and co founder pushing event to Labor Day weekend. The city, Schooner Festival committee and sponsors do a remarkable job! Look for 1623 Studio broadcast (Cape Ann TV)- will add link here when available
