Happy Birthday Mary Day

Good morning everyone. Another year has passed and this week we celebrate the anniversary of the launching of Mary Day 48 years ago. Who would have thought that the first schooner ever launched as a windjammer would still be here almost 50 years later. She is blessed and so are all the guests who have had a chance to share this experience and keep Mary Day and all of the windjammers here in Maine alive.

The days of working commercial sailing vessels paying their own way in the world are no over yet! As much as anything the launching of Mary Day revived the notion that large sailing vessels could still, after a 38 year hiatus, be built here on the Maine coast.

Thanks to all of you out there who have sailed or ever dreamed of sailing aboard a Maine windjammer. As you can see from these photos dating back to 1977 not a whole lot has changed although some of you may see something interesting historic detail in each photo.

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
