Casco Bay sailors

I've posted this on my other site but I'll give it a whirl here.

We sail Casco Bay often and overnight as often as we can. Does anybody have any favorite overnight spot, islands, in Casco Bay, Muscongus Bay, Sheepscott, Linkin, John's? We need a place to bury the hook, and a trail to walk, that's it.

Don,

Biddeford, ME

Thanks for getting back to me Cap'tn. We like Jewell too and have had some really nice weekends there. But, we're looking to expand our horizons, sail into the other chart, that sort of thing. We've been to Sequin and Damariscove, Richmond, Isle of Shoals, and the Goslings. Also, Stover Cove in Harpswell Harbor is real nice and relaxing, with a quiet beach and all.

We've had some good times there. A couple of times there have been a few too many boats but with a 30" draft, we can get a little deeper into Cocktail Cove than some of the big boys that anchor by the mouth. And I don't think I've ever met up with any drunkards. It's been pretty good I think.

I got Pam a membership to MITA for Valentine's Day. I know, I know . . . what a romantic sap. But I think it will help.

MaineSail,

How was the Boston show?

Re: Casco Bay sailors

You could do a lot worse than Hen Island, Snow Island and The Basin, all 3 are very well protected and excellent holding
