Hi there...

I'm so glad you came across this book. I work for two of Maine's windjammers - on of them being the Schooner J&E Riggin that is featured on the cover and a photo spread inside.

We love this book and sell it in our ships chandlery (mostly signed copies from the photographer). Frank M. Chillemi is a wonderful and warm photographer who also teaches our annual Fall Photography Cruise on the windjammer.

Thank you for posting about it. Its always fantastic to see it get the attention it, and Frank, deserves!

Fair winds.
