Hop aboard a comfortable motorboat for a chance to photograph the Great Schooner Race. Your photo opportunities are sure to be spectacular with an assembly of grand, traditional, tall ships, and vessels as large as 132’, three masts of sail, and breathtaking bay scenery. This thrilling and rare sight is reminiscent of centuries past during the ‘age of sail’.

While we motor along to Chase the Race on beautiful Penobscot Bay, you will be spending this remarkable day with other photographers, shooting, discussing images, networking, sharing camera gear tips, and more. While on the bay, expect to see spruce covered islands, marine wildlife; seals, ducks, ospreys, bald eagles, and porpoises.

The Great Schooner Race is hailed as “the largest annual gathering of traditional schooners in America”. This year at least a dozen are expected to participate. While there is a large amount of camaraderie among the captains and crews of these grand, tall ships, you can still count on all the excitement of a very competitive race.
