Flyin’ Downeast

Look at her fly!

Good morning everyone. We had a fabulous past couple of days sailing. Sunday night’s rain broke into a sunny Monday. The fleet left their respective harbors and away we all went…downeast. Which of course means down wind and headed east. Remember that Maine trends east and west from Penobscot Bay, not north and south. Just check the compass next time you are aboard.

Bear I. Light, at the entrance to Northeast Harbor, is one of my personal favorites

Northeast Harbor, a new anchorage for me, was where we went ashore for walks before dinner. 44 miles, 6.5 hours, 1 amazing sailing day. This being our last 6 day trip of the season I was quite aware that I would be leaving Mt Desert astern for the last time this year.

Yesterday afternoon we anchored with the fleet at Great Cove, Brooklin, Maine for the Maine Windjammer Association’s annual Wooden Boat Rendezvous. Dancing to steel drum music, steamed mussels, the Wooden Boat School to tour, a fabulous sunset and a star-filled sky. What else could anyone ask for?

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.

  1. What more could you ask for?? A Nikon 300mm zoom that actually works and yours does!! The repair was worth every Benjamin.

  2. All 26 very happy passengers were indeed leaping for joy throughout this fabulous six day trip. A confluence of perfections: weather, captain, crew, delightfully conversational and amusing (occasionally silly) passengers, abundant delicious food… this was among the best of the twenty + trips we have taken on the Mary Day. Thanks, Barry and Jen! Fair winds for the last three trips!
