The Victory Chimes sailed into Great Cove sunny Tuesday.

But, she had to be pushed out of the Cove by her yawl boat in yesterday morning’s haze and fog.

The 170-foot, motorless Chimes is the largest Maine coastal cruiser in the fleet and the only three-masted one. She’s now out of Rockland, Maine, but was launched in 1900 in Delaware.

She plied the Chesapeake Bay area as the Edwin & Maude until 1954, when she came to Maine and was renamed the Victory Chimes in honor of a Canadian schooner of that name that had been launched on Armistice Day in 1918. (Brooklin, Maine)
