Perfect weekend weather for the 31st Annual Gloucester Schooner Festival made a perfect ending to our amazing Summer. The USS Fort McHenry LSD-43 was the special guest for the event. New this year was the 167' three masted schooner "Mystic" and the 141' steel hull "Columbia", a replica of the original Gloucester fishing schooner launched in 1923 made a big impression for the thousands in attendance.
Saturday the USS Fort McHenry anchors.
