One calm Sunday in April, the crew of the Riggin and the Timberwind moved our new pretty schooner up Penobscot Bay to her new home in Belfast, Maine. The day started calm and then picked up to a feisty 25 knots of breeze on the beam, but for a spring day in Maine, this is still a fairly low key day on the bay. As the sun was closing out the day, our crews celebrated their efforts. To top it all off, the Bangor Daily News was kind enough to highlight the Timberwind‘s new life.
Thank you, Belfast, for your welcoming ways
Merry Christmas to us!
All summer long Jon and I could see the Schooner Timberwind from the deck of the Riggin. We would say to each other that someone should buy that boat. She’s so pretty. She deserves a new life. But when we said “someone” we were NOT meaning us.
However, life had other plans and within a short time after our season ended, we found ourselves on another schooner adventure as the owner of not one, but two Maine windjammers! We are the proud owners of the Schooner Timberwind.
There is still a lot to figure out, but we do know that she’ll be run as a daysailer from a Midcoast town by our former Mate, Lance Meadows. The rest is yet to be confirmed and we’ll look forward to sharing more, when we, ourselves, discover it!
Our fleet expands yet again
