The Great Schooner Race
A Race to the Finish!
Join us on this 6-day cruise for stunning visuals of beautiful historic schooners sailing along the backsplash of a rocky coast. Every summer since 1977, the Maine Windjammer Association has hosted the Great Schooner Race, providing an opportunity for captains, crews and guests aboard traditional vessels from all over the Eastern Seaboard to rendezvous for a day of racing.
The evening before the Great Schooner Race, crew and guests from participating boats can indulge in an insanely-competitive, zany, character-filled race complete with costumes and themes. It’s a time-honored tradition – and if you’re lucky enough to be sailing on one of the nine vessels of the Maine Windjammer Association – it’s an absolutely hilarious, spirit-lifting treat.
We cannot wait to celebrate Independence Day from the deck of the Schooner J. & E. Riggin with you!
