Windjammer Angelique

 

I almost forgot this little video of the ketch Angelique, who, on our last night, joined much of the windjammer fleet in Rockland, Maine’s, south harbor.

One of the really joyful things about sailing on the windjammers is seeing the other windjammers out on the water.  They are like large graceful birds in motion.

John took a gorgeous picture of the Angelique taken during the windjammer races many years ago.  I reframed these pictures this past winter.

 

She dropped her sails just after I stopped recording.  But I got this shot:
