Schooner Grace Bailey - Winter Covers Off!
It has been nearly two years of almost nothing happening here at Maine Windjammer Cruises®. 2020 was the first year since our beginning in 1936 that our proud schooners were not able to sail out of Camden Harbor. Due to COVID, our National Landmark schooners, Grace Bailey and Mercantile have been at the dock under winter covers since October of 2019!
On Monday, April 5, 2021 things changed for the better.
The crocus are blooming at the Episcopal Church
The paint wagon is on the Public Landing
The crew has arrived
... AND ...
The covers are off the Grace Bailey!
The relief and excitement is real as we get the schooners ready for a busy summer of windjamming! The Grace Bailey and Mercantile will finally be able to don their new sets of sails and head out on the bay with passengers aboard.
Shakedown Cruise is May 21st.
Here's hoping you will be a part of our 2021 Sailing Season!
