Chesapeake/Maine Marina''''s/Anchorages

There''s a cruising guide that covers the coast of Maine adequately. Lots of places to hang out. Going north or south, you''re usually against the wind. At least that''s the story of almost every run I''ve made from Mass to Downeast. Big tides require cautious anchoring. Portland has several places to hook up for a month. Little River outside Portsmouth, NH has a large dock system. From there . . . it''s somewhat limited all the way to Portland to small (York, Biddeford)harbor setups with limited space. After Portland, things open up. Penobscot Bay is loaded. Make reservations ahead, if you can, because the NY Yacht Club shows up and commandeers marinas. Buck Harbor Marine in Brooksville has moorings - get the cruising guide.
