Hello Shipmates,
What a month of sailing we've had!  The winds have been wonderful. It was so breezy Monday that we dropped anchor just outside the cove, put in a reef, and raised the main and fore right there.  Shary snapped this photo from the wharf just as the anchor cleared the water.

We sailed over 42 miles on Monday alone as we made our annual trip to Windjammer Days in Boothbay Harbor.

Tuesday evening we enjoyed a delicious clambake put on by the Moore family on Cabbage Island in East Boothbay,

and Wednesday sailed into Boothbay Harbor, one of Maine's many lovely coastal towns. 

With sunset around 8:30 we've had plenty of time to sail and enjoy our anchorages each day.

As we head into July we're looking forward to the Great Schooner Race next week followed by a couple of 3-day trips on July 10th and 14th.  There are still a few cabins available, if you've been thinking about getting out on the water.  It's not too late.  For those who haven't sailed before, these shorter trips are perfect for getting a taste of what windjamming is all about. 

If your July calendar is already packed with other plans, August has lots of 3- and 4-day trips to choose from, whether for a weekend getaway, or as part of a week-long vacation. It's a chance to relax and enjoy the beauty of our coast, to have a clear view of the lighthouses that have guided mariners for generations, and set aside the hustle and bustle of everyday life for just a little while. Pure relaxation.  

We're often asked whether we have lobsters on every trip. The answer is an emphatic yes! Regardless of whether you are on a 3-, 4- or 6-day trip, we'll have lobsters.  Have one, two, or as many as you want!

A recipe for a smile on your face 

the Chocolate Course

After lunch each day Captain Linda appears holding a plate of fine chocolates to top off a delicious noontime meal.  

A cordial, a dark chocolate caramel sprinkled with sea salt, a chocolate covered cashew or perhaps a nonpareil, just enough to satisfy the palette.


Hope we'll be seeing you aboard sometime this season.
