FotoFriday: Fred LeBlanc’s Windjammers Downeast

Earlier this week I received a copy of Fred LeBlanc’s new mini-coffee table book, Windjammers Downeast as well as an accompanying set of beautiful photo postcards.

I met Fred when I was at the American Sail Training Association where he was always extremely generous with his images. He’s dedicated his work to helping promote this very unique fleet of tall ships that sail along the beautiful Maine coast.

So next time you are heading over to someone’s house for a summer dinner, you might want to skip the predictable bottle of wine and cut flowers and present them a copy of Windjammers Downeast; especially if they’re sailors or just love the sea. It’s about the same price and it’ll bring enjoyment much, much longer.

  1. Hey, I live in Texas now but I’m born-and-bred Bay Of Chaleur.

    I remember seeing the Tall Ships in Halifax, I believe that was the summer of Mahone Bay’s first Wooden Boat Festival, which is now called the Classic Boat Festival. Might have been the 2nd Annual One.

    Long live The Sea!
