The Schooners from the Gloucester Schooner Festival

Today I want to run through all the schooners that participated in the Gloucester Schooner Festival. Many of these schooners come year after year. Some are new this year. We really appreciate that they came into Gloucester to participate in our celebration.

Starting the lineup is the schooner Adventure, a knockabout schooner that was the mother ship for many a grand banks dory. If you’ve been visiting over the last week, you saw pictures of the Adventure on the rails.

Very cool looking boats. I'd get sick on every one of them. ;-)

I'm officially on schooner overload. And I am so happy about it. Thank you Steve. You have to know the boats and schooners are one of my favorite things about New England, aside from the old buildings. Love all of these. Glad you got some beautiful weather for that too. Carol
