Boats in Head Harbour Passage

Celebrating Passamaquoddy Bay

2005 July 3

Around 52 boats, plus 12 kayaks, participated in the regatta, starting off Head Harbour Light on Campobello Island, and sailing down Head Harbour Passage toward Eastport.

See another set of photographs on a different page.

As the boats approached Easport, the US Coast Guard positioned a boat between the US Navy Ship's security zone and the international border.
From shore, Gracie Davis sang the Passamaquoddy welcome song, while others cheered, waved flags, and honked horns in support of the event.
The Navy ship's security boat sped around the area.
Even a biplane surveiled from low overhead.
The Sail-a-Bration regatta paraded up and down the international border, and then crossed into US waters.
Finally, the boats sailed past the Navy vessel docked at the Eastport breakwaterr for the 4th of July celebration. Several boats sailed up Western Passage, travelling the route an LNG tanker would take, if one ever came to supply a terminal at Split Rock.
The Sail-a-Bration was a great success. It achieced its purpose of calling attention to the beauty and bounty of Passamaquoddy Bay.

Thanks to all who participated at sea, and those who waved flags and cheered from Campobello Island, Deer Island, and Eastport shores. A special thanks to Lesley Pinder, who had the idea, and led it to fruition; Joyce Morrell and Jan Meiners, who made flags for the boats; and Bob Godfrey, who worked on logistics with the US Coast Guard.

Today's Sail-a-Bration was the latest example of the determination and dedication of our 3-nation alliance. Together, we will save Passamaquoddy Bay from LNG.
