Maine’s windjammer fleet is celebrating one of the final festivals of summer.

More than a dozen traditional schooners were participating in the Camden Windjammer Festival, which is described as the largest gathering of schooners on the East Coast. Some of the participating vessels are National Historic Landmarks.

Saturday’s events included a lobster crate race across the water, along with windjammer tours and a chowder cook-off.

The three-day event wraps up Sunday with a make-believe pirate attack on Camden.
