We were pretty excited to see mention of Mary Day’s 50th birthday in the latest Maine Windjammer Association Newsletter. I had been interviewed for the article but did not know exactly when it would be coming out. The more I talk about Mary Day’s 50th the more I understand her place in the fleet. The fleet of windjammers here in Maine is really what gives her context. I know we wouldn’t be here without the captains and crews that charted the waters of this business before us. Maintaining these vessels has huge financial¬†challenges but in a day and age when not-for-profit vessels are struggling to stay afloat we are excited that this fleet of commercial sailing vessels here in Maine still holds there own. ¬†It really is a remarkable story and we are proud that Mary Day is another chapter in the history of this fleet.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
