25th Annual Great Schooner Race

I'm off to the 25th Annual Gloucester Schooner Festival and the
Sept. 6, 2009 Mayor's Race. I'll be sailing aboard the schooner
AMERICAN EAGLE, hope to see a few of my blog viewers.

So Fred-what was it like to be on the winning boat this year? By the way I love your book-just wish it was longer in length.

The EAGLE lost to Virginia last year, rounding the last mark and only beating her by 28sec.this year in the 25th Gloucester Schooner Race and being aboard the only original Gloucester fishman still sailing it felt pretty good. Were you on one of the boat if so which one ?
Glad you enjoyed the book I wish it was longer to tell the publisher WoodenBoat. Fair Winds.

If I had been on any of them, it would have been the Eagle. I've sailed with John since '94 and I'll be aboard in a little over 2 weeks.
