The Schooner Heritage was in Great Cove Tuesday (July23) afternoon. She’s 145 feet long overall and sports a unique yellow hull.


She hoisted sail in the late afternoon and took a southerly course out of the Cove as the sun was going down behind her.


She jibed to the northwest as the breeze picked up. The low, soft light found her in the haze of Eggemoggin Reach. It felt like we were peering into the 19th Century on its best day.


The Heritage’s classic lines make it easy to forget that she’s the youngest of our coastal cruisers, having been designed for the tourist trade and launched in 1983. She’s 145 feet long overall and has a unique yellow hull. Her home port is Rockland, Maine. (Brooklin, Maine)
