The Christofersen Family Cruises


Last June Audrey and Arthur Christofersen sailed aboard the Schooner Mercantile with their children to celebrate their 60th anniversary. They arrived in soggy weather with high spirits and some fairly sophisticated camera equipment around their necks. Fortunately, the weather broke during their trip giving them a reprieve from last year's dismal spring and a wonderful time was had by all.

This year Audrey celebrated a landmark birthday and the family decided to send them on a cruise of their choice. Audrey chose to return to Maine for another windjammer cruise with the family.

They brought with them a gift that their children had given them as a Christmas present -- a beautiful book containing 160 pages of photographs from their previous trip. If anyone is curious about a windjammer cruise or wants to relive the memories of their own cruise, this book is a wonderful representation of what 6 days on a Maine Windjammer Cruises schooner has to offer. Their impressive record of their sail can be previewed at Christofersen 60th Anniversary Cruise.

Jon Christofersen has posted some images from this year's cruise on the Schooner Mercantile's Facebook page and I'm thinking there may be the beginning of another great book!
