Schooner Thomas E. Lannon

Picture yourself relaxing on the deck of this beautiful 65- foot schooner as she sails out of Gloucester harbor on a light southwesterly breeze. Join us for a two hour sail and get a taste for what it was like to sail on a fishing schooner a hundred years ago. Help the crew raise the sails, or just sit back and take in the sights and sounds of Gloucester’s coastline.

Driving Directions

There are several routes that will bring you into downtown Gloucester. The quickest and easiest way is to follow 128 N until you come to a rotary. Take the first right off the rotary (Exit 11). Friendly’s Restaurant will be on your right. Follow Washington Street approximately 8/10 mi. until the Legion Memorial Building is directly in front of you. Bear right there (See the Joan of Arc on horseback statue), then take a quick left onto Angle Street. At the stop sign, go straight across the intersection downhill toward the harbor and then turn left onto Rt. 127, (Rogers Street). Go another 2/10 mi. and look RIGHT for the Gloucester House Restaurant sign, then the “Schooner Sails” sign on the right. You’ve found us! The Lannon ties up on the right hand side of the Restaurant.

Notes & Advisories

PLEASE ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO FIND PARKING. Please check in and pick up your tickets in the Schooner Sails shed before heading to the boat. The Lannon sails on time. You don’t want to miss the boat. Boarding begins 10 minutes before sail time. Reservations are held until boarding time. After that time, we reserve the right to sell your spots. So, do yourself a favor. Come early, relax and enjoy Gloucester. We have beautiful beaches, shopping, museums and art colonies. Did you know that there are over twenty restaurants and cafes within walking distance of the Lannon? We hope to sail with you soon.
