Windjammer Days!

This year, for the very first time, I managed to visit Boothbay during the annual Windjammer Days festival.

Windjammer Days-3

Boothbay has historically been and remains to this day, a community very tied to the sea--to fishing and lobstering, to boatbuilding and nowadays also to tourist boat excursions. Windjammer days is a way for the town to celebrate this rich seafaring history and to kick off the summer tourist season.

Windjammer DaysThe week consists of numerous activities for participants of all ages. You can see the 2014 Schedule of Events here.

Preparations for the 2015 53rd annual festival are already underway! The events (most of which are free to the public) will run from June 21st through 27th, with the tall ships arriving June 23rd and 24th.

I hope you have a chance to experience Windjammer Days in the coming years!
