Schooner J&E Riggin Helps Maine Lighthouse Museum

I just received the following news from Elizabeth Poisson, Shore Operations Manager for the Schooner J&E Riggin :

The Schooner J&E Riggin has seven Maine Lighthouses and Lobster cruises they will do throughout the 2009 season. All the profits from the June 4-9 trip will be donated to the Maine Lighthouse Museum.

With over 60 lighthouses in Maine and over 20 in our sailing grounds of Penobscot Bay, we will see as many Maine lighthouses as possible during our each of our trips. And, of course, passengers will enjoy plenty of lobster too – at a beachside lobster bake as well as lobster worked into a few other meals during the trip.

You can visit this link (http://www.mainewindjammer.com/sailing-cruise-flyers/maine-lighthouses-lobster-cruises.html) for more information on the cruise, or call us at 800-869-0604 for more details.

Fair winds,
