Portland SchoonerFest and Regatta

Portland's own spring regatta for traditional sail, Portland SchoonerFest and Regatta kicks off the summer sailing season the solstice weekend of June every year featuring 7 large, traditional schooners racing and parading under sail together in Portland Harbor with passengers participating onboard and viewing from shore. The 2018 event featured some of the most famous schooners in the country including Gloucester's Schooner Adventure, the 131' Harvey Gamage of Portland, and Bailey Island's Schooner Alert. These classics are racing against hometown favorites Bagheera and Wendameen. And new in 2018 were the first race for Marine Maritime Museum's legendary Schooner Mary E. and Timberwind, an original Portland pilot schooner. Please join us onboard in 2019 as we expect another amazing experience. At this time, only group tickets are on sale.
