Great weather for Windjammer Parade
Rockland — Temperatures in the 70s and light winds made for a great day of sailing around the Rockland Breakwater July 11 for the 10th annual Maine Windjammer Parade.
Hundreds of spectators lined the granite mile to the lighthouse as the vessels sailed back and forth for close viewing.
The lighthouse was open for viewing from its 25-foot tower, and Captain Jim Sharp of the Sail, Power and Steam Museum in Rockland narrated the parade for the crowd.
