Boothbay Harbor, Maine hosts “Windjammer Days” every June. It’s a great photo opportunity when viewed from the passenger boat “Balmy Days” from Balmy Days Cruises. The captain does a great job maneuvering around the sailing vessels for the load of photographers on board.
This year the previous days weather kept some of the windjammers from making the trip down the coast from the Camden/Rockport area of Maine, but there are images everywhere. They may not be exactly what you planned on, but finding those images is what I love about photography.

The Heritage is one of the few large sailing vessels with no engine.The small boat hanging off the stern is lowered into the water and used to push the windjammer into the tight harbor.
Close to the action.
Spectators are everywhere.

Don’t Panic. This is how children on the Maine coast play.
