The crew has started to arrive and preparations for the 2017 Sailing Season are well underway.

Sally and the yawl boat are getting paint and varnish and their engines are getting through inspection and servicing.  Grace Bailey and Mercantile are getting some below decks projects started.

Heads and Blocks have all been serviced and are ready for the season.  We'll all know it is truly Spring when the Maine Windjammer Cruises paint wagon arrives on the Public Landing.

We're a way from covers off, but making great progress. 

It's exciting to look forward to May 19th the first sail of the season!  We'll be ready for Shakedown, one of the highlights of the Season.  We hope to see as many of you as possible on board!
