Next Heading for Deer Ises/Mt Desert area [hundreds of islands] for a week before heading back south. Anyone interested in this area OR the offshore trip from Mt Desert to Cape Cod [135 miles, maybe 2 days] give me a call!

Been great weather so far, and good sailing. And lots of grilling. And anchoring. And clamming. And lobster pots. And friendly lobstermen. But fall is in the air . . . . .

Pots are not too bad this year John. Many labsterman either are not fishing or are using limited gear.

Remember that you will start to see toggles in Muscongus bay and most will have toggles by the time you reach Frenchmans Bay.

IMO, the mixed area is worse because it can be difficult to match a toggle to a pot as some fisherman use a plain white toggle instead of a matching one.

Re: Crew Wanted - Relaxed sailing beautiful Maine Islands - September

Hello all,

I am now in Portland, heading north for Belfast on Friday morning.

Sail up from Cape Cod was great (25 knot winds in Buzzards bay), hit [not literally] Hull, MA, the Isles of Shoals off NH {loved it, will go back}, Kennebunkport {too touristy and ritzy for me} and Portland {great old city with long oceangoing history, lots of good food, art and live music}.

Next - the real Maine islands begin! Lots of them. And tons of lobster pots to dodge. Dodge the pot. I hope I can just run them over when I'm sailing {no, not when motoring, I know}. Talk about zig zag zig zig zag. Yikes.

Thanks for the comments so far. Cheers Tempest, David and Goose.

Open spots for Maine are Sept 7-15 and Sept 21-28.

After that, if someone wants to join me for the sail back down to Cape Cod in late Sept/early October . . .

November will find me heading south, so if you are interested, call or email me. In the short term, just call! No internet on board.

OK, I am going clamming. Nice garlic-cilantro-white-wine sauce to steam them in . . . . . and maybe mahi mahi shishkabobs with pinapple, onion, mushroom, red peppers and . . . .

Anyone hungry now???

Bye

I'll be sailing "Gotwit", a new 40' Hanse, between Boston and mid-coast Maine in the middle of September. Say hi if you see us.

Re: Crew Wanted - Relaxed sailing beautiful Maine Islands - September

John, I noticed you have sought after crew more than once. I am not available in September but if you are looking for crew October and beyond please send me a PM and i'll tell you a little more about myself. (I can't send one to you until I have 15 posts and prefer not to tell personal information on the open forum)

Thanks!

Thanks.
46 USC 2101 ( 5a) Allows:

"voluntary sharing of the actual expenses of the voyage, by monetary contribution or donation of fuel, food, beverage, or other supplies. "


I would jump on this offer...if I didn't have a class to teach in sept. This is a great opportunity.
