Already the ides of July and as I'm swimming in an absolutely uncrowded Maine cool, clear lake on a sunny day looking up at the mountains, I'm thinking....this sucks. I wish I were stuck in a sweaty subway in a city listening to some nose breather next to me.
The Maine Windjammer Association will host the 7th Annual Maine Windjammer Parade past the Rockland Breakwater on July 16 from 2 - 4 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 Lighthouse. Spectators may view the Parade of Sail from anywhere along the mile-long Breakwater. Immediately following the Parade, many of the windjammers will anchor next to the jetty inside Rockland Harbor for the evening. Festivities include tours of the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse (contact Friends of the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse at 207-785-4609). For more information, call 800-807-WIND
