Eggemoggin Reach Regatta

Please follow and like us:

We sailed from Isle au Haut through Merchant Row and up into Eggemoggin Reach just in time to arrive at the finish line of the wooden boat regatta, http://ERregatta.com. This location at Brooklin Maine is the home of WoodenBoat School where you can learn to build your own wooden boat. We have never seen so many magnificent wooden boats and perfectly varnished brightwork and wooden masts and spars in one harbor anywhere.

In the morning, we explored the WoodenBoat Bookstore and the WoodenBoat School where we observed students working on their kayacks and small sailing dinghies. This looks like a very interesting program and maybe someday we will come up here to participate in building a boat. Take a look at some of the yachts I photographed below. I tried to show their beauty and their varnish. Enjoy the photos….
