Rockport Maine. Our dinghy dock is a 5 minute walk from home. It's a quiet working harbor.
The best thing about having a boat here, is the wind. Just outside the harbor, you can often pick up the prevailing southwesterly wind and head eastward across Penobscot Bay and beyond.
It's not unusual for us to sail a beam reach all the way through the big bay, threading between and around islands, about 30 nm's, into the Merchant Islands off Deer Isle.
Penobscot Bay gives you vast sailing options and destinations in all wind directions and strengths.
For close to home sailing, we often head for the nearby Fox Islands, Islesboro, to mention just a few, which have a wide range of anchorages and harbors to spend the night in.
