Re: Maine bound & back
You could gamble a bit with weather, and hopefully ride a prevailing southerly to Penobscot Bay. Because of the curve of the coast, it's not that much farther than Maine points to the south.
Then sail in the bay for a few days. Just cruising around the Fox Islands will give you great options for anchorages, moorings and sailing grounds(Try Nebo Lodge for drinks from your mooring in North haven village).
Then plan to meander southward in short hops, along the coast. That time of year, odds are good you could pick up a land warmed westerly breeze that can send you nicely along the coast in flat water.
Pick your stops along the way.
