Come celebrate Fourth of July with Portland Schooner Company for the best seats in the house aboard our historic vessels, Wendameen, Bagheera, and Timberwind!
Join Portland Schooner Company and The Thirsty Pig as we host a special event, “Hop and Jibe” on our “new” historic schooner, Timberwind, built in 1931. This event will be every Tuesday evening, starting June 26 through August 28. We will be featuring a different local brewery every week as the Thirsty Pig serves up a delicious three course meal. This event will be hoppin’ and jibin', and you won’t want to miss out.
Hosted by Tall Ships Portland--
Portland's own spring regatta for traditional sail, Portland SchoonerFest and Regatta kicks off the summer sailing season the last weekend of June featuring 6 to 8 large, traditional schooners racing and parading under sail together in Portland Harbor with passengers participating onboard and ashore in the spectacular and historic second regatta. The 2018 event will feature several schooners from around 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, Wendameen, and Timberwind. And new in 2018 will be the first race for Marine Maritime Museum's legendary Schooner Mary E. which is under restoration at the museum in Bath and ready in time to participate in this event. The festival and regatta was a memorable event for those able to sail in 2017 and we expect another sellout in 2018.
