2010 Schooner Days in Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia
 October 15-17, 2010

Schooner Days is a celebration of the world’s largest gathering of schooners along the waterfront of Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia. It's held this year in conjunction with the 21st Annual Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race from Baltimore to Portsmouth- racing to save the bay!

A gathering of  great vintage wooden schooners are clustered together in Olde Towne Portsmouth for Schooner Days.
 This three day celebration offers numerous maritime-related activities, many are free to the general public.

The Portsmouth waterfront from North Landing to beyond the High Street Landing will showcase over 40 schooners from local and distant ports and is considered the largest gathering of schooners in the world.

 Schooner Days was created to commemorate Portsmouth’s rich maritime history with a variety of scheduled historical recreation events including demonstrations by shipwright artisans, maritime related musicians, costumed actors and even a hands-on building of a skiff! Other exhibits will be on hand to bring awareness for the need to preserve and improve the natural resources of the Chesapeake Bay.


  1. Thanks, Joe, for putting all the info and pics in one boat. I'm looking forward to seeing old friends again, great weather, good times and plenty of photo ops.

  2. Hmmmm.... perhaps another jaunt out to the East Coast is for me. Here I thought I was done for the year :) Thanks Joe for the post.
