Spring Outfitting is Here!
Spring's here and we all know what that means… outfitting season has begun. It's time to get the schooner Heritage ready for another year of sailing on Penobscot Bay! The crew has started to arrive and they are all hard at work keeping the schooner beautiful for us all to enjoy this season. After spending the winter working on the office end of the business, it's nice to break out the work boots and get back to some familiar springtime tasks.
The crew set right into varnishing spars, sanding, and painting at a rapid pace. So far, the weather has been beautiful with lots of sun and temperatures in the high 50s! We have to take advantage of weeks like this so we all climbed aloft to tar the rig and scrape the masts. Working with pine tar is a messy job for sure, but you can’t beat the view to the islands across the bay.

How many brushes does it take to paint the Heritage?

Maybe you've never thought of it before, but we are gathering supplies and here are 72 new paint brushes ready to gussy her up.

Think it'll be enough?
Spring Sailing Private Charter

Want to book a private charter on the Heritage? Here's your chance at an affordable price.

We have decided to offer our 4-night trip of June 7-June 11 as a private charter. Bring a group your closest friends and family and enjoy the windjammer experience with a small, intimate group.

You will enjoy all of the vessel’s amenities including single cabins and private head cabins. The trip is still all inclusive and yes, of course it features an all-you-can-eat lobster bake on a pristine island beach. This is the first trip of the season so you will be the first guests to step aboard the Heritage this year.
