Cruising Maine

We want to cruise Maine and have been told that most people leave by Sept. Our plan was to get there by mid August and stay a month.
Any advice would be appreciated.

We stayed till end of August last year and I wouldn''t think another couple of weeks would be worrisome... you just might want to make sure you have good warm stuff aboard and be prepared for a bit more fog. You don''t say where in Maine you plan to visit, but you might want to get "east" early and then work your way backwards so you can make easy daily runs down the coast later in September. Might be nice with fewer tourists around! Best..GB

Actually, toward Sept., the winds kick around more westerly and northwesterly compared to the sw''s of summer. Sept. good. Oct. damn cold. Fingerless wool gloves always helped in Sept., along with the warm stuff. Tain''t crowded, neither.

September & October are our favorite crusing months here! There''s actually some wind (tends to be light in high summer) and the air is clear and crisp with great visibility. Yeah it can be cold: wear layers though because you will be hot in the lee in the sun. A cabin heater is great. Lotsa fleece and good wind=breaking foulies. You won''t have to del with overcrowded anchorages, either....
