Camden Windjammer Festival is packed with events and fireworks and is scheduled for Friday September 3rd through Sunday September 5th 2010. Well over a dozen historic windjammers, sleek day sailing yachts, and motor fishing boats will enter Camden Harbor Friday afternoon for the Labor Day weekend gala. For years Camden Harbor has been the home port of this event each Labor Day weekend and it attracts old salts, historians, boat builders, woodworkers, and sailing enthusiasts from around the globe.
The windjammer event provides a unique opportunity to board and take a walking tour of each of these beautifully and impeccably restored historic sailing ships.
