Windjammer Days 2016- Boothbay Harbor, Maine

  • WindjammerEventPhotoFull_Heading into Boothbay

This wonderful event celebrates and honors a time before there were planes, trains, and automobiles and sailing ships were the best way to travel the world or transport goods long distances. Windjammers were the grandest of the merchant ships from the era, enormous sailing boats with several large masts designed to carry massive amounts of cargo from one continent to another. For centuries, the Boothbay Harbor Region has been a center of American shipping and shipbuilding, its harbor graced by elegant Windjammers as well as other commercial pleasure ships.

  • windjammers212013

At this year's Windjammer Days Festival you will find something for everyone and most of the events are FREE to the public! You will see twelve beautiful windjammers sail into Boothbay Harbor, including a motley gang of pirates that will invade Boothbay Harbor striking not terror but delight in the hearts of all those they encounter.

  • windjammerpirates

Crowds will anchor themselves to local docks, day sailors, and private yachts to watch Boothbay Harbor’s nautical guests arrive under full sail between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Guests may enjoy waterfront concessions, pancake breakfasts, child friendly events, a craft show, tours on board the many Winjammers that will come into lovely Boothbay Harbor and of the United States Coast Guard Station Boothbay Harbor.
