Parade of Sail, Evening Fireworks, and Schooner Farewell

While Windjammer Days in Boothbay Harbor offers a week full of events, it is the Windjammers who we have gathered to celebrate. They are each a vessel of living history and their entrance into the harbor each June is not only treasured by those who turn out year after year to watch, but they also revered and respected for keeping an important piece of our past part of our present.

The Windjammer will gather off Cabbage Island to begin their glide into Boothbay Harbor under full sail. They start arriving shortly after 1 pm. You can view them from both the east and west side of the harbor including Whale park, the Footbridge, Fisherman's Memorial, as well as the Aquarium on McKown Point just to name a few spots.
