"The magnificent Victory Chimes -- the only original three-masted schooner in the famed Maine Windjammer fleet -- is the last of her generation, a noble reminder of the Age of Sail. With her sails pulling for all they are worth in the freshening breeze, this proud vessel speeds through the water... no smoke, no dust, no noise... nothing but the music of wind and sea. Regal in repose -- majestic under sail -- the Victory Chimes is truly a legendary lady."

"Many people ask us if the breakwater was built to connect the lighthouse to the land. In fact, the breakwater was built first. In the 1850s several severe nor’easters caused considerable damage to many Rockland waterfront structures, businesses and to ships in the harbor. Lack of a protective breakwater clearly prevented the harbor from realizing its potential as a commercial port and a harbor of refuge for coastal shipping. In spite of citizen petitions and intervention by a local Senator, Congress did not approve constuction of a breakwater until 1880."
