Famous Fishing Schooners Returning to Gloucester

Bluenose II

The famous Nova Scotian schooner Bluenose II and the American schooner Columbia will be coming to Gloucester, MA, this summer to celebrate the 100th anniversary of International Fishermen’s Race (first held in 1920) and the 36th year of the Gloucester Schooner Festival.

The schooner Adventure, built in 1926 and now a National Historic Landmark, will also be participating in the festival, as will Gen. George Patton’s former schooner When & If.

The festival is a program of Maritime Gloucester, and will take place over Labor Day Weekend (Sept. 3-7).
