Windjammer Lighthouse Parade Offers Close-Up Views of Historic Fleet
Mid-coast, MAINE— The Maine Windjammer Association will host the 9th annual Maine Windjammer Parade past the Rockland Breakwater on July 12 from 2:00-4:00 pm. Geared for both spectators on shore and windjammer guests, the event will provide close-up views of the entire fleet as it sails within a stone’s throw of the Rockland Breakwater Light.
Friends of Rockland Breakwater Light will open the lighthouse up for afternoon tours—spectators are encouraged to bring their cameras to get some great photos of the windjammers from the 25-foot tower. For spectators who need help distinguishing a ketch from a schooner or a coaster from a pilot boat, Captain Jim Sharp of the Sail, Power and Steam Museum will narrate the Parade over a PA system at the Lighthouse.
