50th Annual Windjammer Days 2012

At this year's Windjammer Days Festival, June 24-27, you will find something for everyone and most of the events are FREE to the public! Enjoy the beauty of fully rigged windjammers sailing into Boothbay Harbor. Four days of family fun, sailboat race, golf tournament, pancake breakfasts, waterfront concerts, art,  craft fair, hometown street parade, antique boat parade and fireworks over the harbor! 

You will see twelve beautiful windjammers sail into Boothbay Harbor, including a motley gang of pirates that will invade Boothbay Harbor striking not terror but delight in the hearts of all those they encounter.

The new "Jammers and Joggers" race, sponsored by 94.9 WHOM will kick off the Festival at 7:30 am.  Come cheer on Dr. Alamo, a popular Boothbay Harbor physician and veteran marathoner, and his family and the Schooner Timberwind with Captains Bob and Joe Tass, as they race down the coast of Maine by land and sea for nearly 50 miles.

Sherman Zwicker will be on our railway or dock during the festivities.

Enjoy some amazing photos taken by Kevin Morris last year on Windjammer Days.
