Gloucester Schooner Festival

Yes, this is the weekend that I live for. It’s Schooner Festival weekend in Gloucester. This year with Earl messing up the mix, I’m not sure how many boats are coming in. This is the Westward with the town hall in the background. The Alabama is here, Estrela, SummerWind, Spirit of Massachusetts, Bald Eagle, Maine, Liberty Clipper, the Thomas E. Lannon and a couple more. 

Sadly, some favorites are not in town. Notably missing is The Pride of Baltimore II which is up in Michigan, the Virginia which is not sailing this summer and the Bluenose II which is being restored. The Bluenose II won’t be sailing until 2012. ©2010 ShootingMyUniverse
The Harvey Gamage is in the shipyard getting some maintenance. It is a shame to see one of our regulars hauled out on schooner weekend. But at least it is getting worked on in the right town!
