The 58th Windjammer Days Festival set for June 21-29 was canceled Wednesday, April 29.
According to Capt. Pete Ripley, board member of Friends of Windjammer Days, the decision was made after Gov. Janet Mills announced her four-part plan to reopen the state.
“There’s no way we can keep crowds down to less than 50 people,” Ripley said. “Here’s looking toward 2021.”
Ripley said there was a possibility the Blessing of the Fleet could still happen. It was added to the WJD Festival after the Fishermen’s Festival ended.
