The Schooners are Back

It was wonderful to have the Schooner Festival back in Gloucester this Labor Day weekend, after last year’s cancellation due to COVID.

Unfortunately, Saturday was Captain Carlo’s last dinner before permanently closing
American Eagle, Columbia, and Fritha docked on the waterfront
Columbia and her dories, with the Paint Manufactory and Cape Pond Ice beyond
Enjoying a peaceful sunset aboard American Eagle, down from Rockland, ME
The foredeck of reproduction fishing schooner Columbia, hailing from Panama City, FL
The Paint Manufactory (now Ocean Alliance), seen through the rigging
The schooners Saturday night, prepared for race day
Sunday’s Parade of Sail with schooners and spectators headed toward the starting line
Columbia and Roseway about to round Dogbar Breakwater
The fleet approaching the starting line; a Rhodes-19 bucking the tide
Gloucester’s restored Adventure, and Columbia, maneuvering before the start
Heavy traffic at the start
When and If (General Patton’s schooner) beats out Columbia for overall honors
