The historic schooner Bowdoin, the brainchild of explorer Donald B. MacMillan, of the Class of 1898, and built by Hodgdon Brothers of East Boothbay, was launched 90 years ago.

Maine Maritime Academy, which has owned the schooner since 1989, is celebrating the milestone and kicking off  the Bowdoin‘s sailing season during the school’s annual Waterfront Expo in Castine this weekend.
