This Thursday thru Saturday is the 52nd annual Friendship Sloop Society Homecoming and Rendezvous in Rockland. The Anna R will be going out twice each day offering a chance to view these beautiful old fishing sloops racing. No matter what the weather brings, the races are always a fun and exciting to watch.

We’ll be leaving the Public Landing at 11:00 and 1:15 on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for two, two hour opportunities to view the Sloops Racing. Tickets are $45 per passenger for a two hour sail and space is limited to six people. Alternately, your party may call to reserve the boat for the entire duration of any of the races. Contact Sarah at 207-701-1622, or

 Even if you can’t make it out for a sail, if you are in the mid-coast area be sure to stop by the Public Landing to see all the lovely Sloops rafted up together!

You can also watch the Parade of Sail from the breakwater on Saturday at 11:30, but nothing beats seeing the sloops racing from the decks of a Friendship!

Be sure to check back later this week for photos from this years Friendship Sloop Days.
