America's oldest seaport town is hosting the 35th annual Gloucester Schooner Festival and we're ready to set sail and victoriously race across the finish line. Join us as we celebrate classic fishing schooners and the vibrant New England maritime industry. Rain or shine, wind or calm, we hoist our sails and join in a Labor Day tradition.

Bring a lunch and some snacks, we’ll provide the drinks soda and water (beer and wine for sale) and make a day of it aboard our National Historic Landmark ship, Roseway.

* Please keep in mind that the end of the race is different each year and we have no way to determine what time that will be. While we estimate a 4pm conclusion, please be prepared to be aboard less or more time.


The office is open Monday - Friday 9am-5pm; if you have questions about the logistics your sail outside of those hours please call the boat phone 617-755-7241
