Windjammer VICTORY CHIMES, Rockland, Maine

Based in part on his VICTORY CHIMES experience, Captain Richard “Kip” Files was selected to sail the CHARLES W. MORGAN in 2014.

A National Historic Landmark, VICTORY CHIMES shares the Maine state quarter with the Pemaquid Point lighthouse.


  1. Love the Volvo pic, we have a 2000 V70 with 263,000 miles and it still runs like new.

  2. The wood, the brass, and all the coiled ropes are just gorgeous to me. I assume I'm seeing the officer's quarters when I see the beautiful interior photos. I'm rereading Patrick O'Brien's British navel series for the I-don't-know-how-manieth time and your photos so often come to mind as I flow through his books.

  3. These photos show all that's right in this world. Well done.

  4. Love these photos. It is making me think about a trip to Mystic.

    1. Yes, indeed! That little corner of New England must have the largest collection of (real) Land-Rovers in the world. Most are later models (meaning newer than the one I once had).

  6. Saw the Victory Chimes the last time we were anchored at Cuttyhunk. A familiar sight on Long Island Sound. A beautiful schooner.

  7. Love everything is nautical, and these picture are very nice, especially those of the house decor with the vessel and the reception with nautical flag!
