Schooner 'Bowdoin' departs from Castine, ca. 1950

Contributed by Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center

The schooner Bowdoin left for her Arctic expeditions from various ports in Maine - most often Wiscasset and Boothbay Harbor, but a few times from Castine, as in this photo taken around 1950.

For decades, crowds went down to the waterside to make the Bowdoin's departures for the North into festive occasions.

Many also watched and waved from small boats, accompanying the schooner out to open water.
