New London - Fans of OpSail can look forward to more schooners in the waters off New London, this time in collaboration with Mystic Seaport.

On Monday, the chairman of OpSail2012 in Connecticut, John Johnson, is scheduled to brief Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on plans for a five-year schedule of major schooner festivals, OpSail organizers said in a statement released Friday.

Participating schooners will compete in a race to Connecticut from Provincetown, Mass., and then compete again while here. The first festival is scheduled from Sept. 11, 2013 through Sept. 15, 2013.
