Rockland — The Maine Windjammer Association’s Parade of Sail, scheduled for Friday, July 12, at the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse, has been cancelled because of the predicted chance of thunderstorms and drenching rain. To preserve the safety of viewers and windjammer boats and passengers, the weather forecast dictates that all official activities associated with the event may not take place.

If the weather should improve, windjammers may choose to parade at will. This will be up to each boat individually. However, all Maine Windjammer Association official activities – including narration and lighthouse tours – have been cancelled.

There is no rain date scheduled for the event.

The next Maine Windjammer Association fleet gathering will be at the Camden Windjammer Festival, Aug. 30 and 31.
