Wed, 08/14/2019 - 3:00pm

Beige sailing yachts and bright yellow T-shirts dominated the waterfront this past weekend as the 17th Biennial Maine Island Packet Rendezvous hosted by Norm and Mary Pierce of Pierce Yacht Company took place at Captain Fish’s Waterfront Inn.

Thirteen Island Packet yachts and 55 owners from all over the east coast and Caribbean sailed or drove to the harbor to participate in seminars on cruising the Maine coast, boat maintenance and operation, and two very special presentations by the Coast Guard Auxiliary on inflatable life jackets and Lifeline Batteries on maintaining their batteries.

The three-day event included an evening banquet superbly presented by the staff at the Boothbay Harbor Inn and concluded with a fantastic Sunday morning breakfast at Cod's Head Fish House & BBQ at Captain Fish’s Waterfront Inn.
