THE USCG EAGLE WILL LEAD THE PARADE OF SAIL
THURSDAY AUGUST 1, 2019 6:00 PM
Boat owners are encouraged to join the thrilling Parade of Sail up the Piscataqua and escort the Eagle to its berth at the State Pier (Port Authority). When the weather permits, the Coast Guard will provide aerial cover. Joined by fireboats from the Navy and local fire departments, the Parade of Sail is best witnessed from the good viewing spots on Four Tree Island, the Kittery Point Yacht Club and the Memorial Bridge sidewalk in Portsmouth, the Great Island Common on New Castle Island, and Ft. Foster in Kittery, Maine. Don’t miss it.
