Date: Tuesday Aug 02, 2016
Time: 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.


Maine’s legendary fleet of windjammers will sail in company through Somes Sound, the body of water running deep into Mount Desert Island, where dramatic 600-foot cliffs form the backdrop for this afternoon parade of sail.

Accompanying the windjammers will be The Corinthians fleet of power and sailing yachts, flying the Corinthians courtesy flag and the Acadia Centennial burgee.

The windjammer parade will be a sight not to be missed! Best spectator viewing will be along Sargent Drive, which will be temporarily one-way going north for the duration of the event in order to accommodate parking.
