I'm currently away from Windwitch while doing a working vacation near Rockport Me. And just beginning to tourist about abit when time permits. Earlier today caught a glimpse of Penobscot bay from Us1 and it was amazing....wondered if anyone sails out of Camden Rockport Rockland etc and might suggest spots to see or ever needs crew for an hours sail.... Beautiful place .

One of the best sailing grounds in New England. Too many great spots to even list. There are town, secluded bays, lunch spots, etc.

Either charter a boat or get a spot on a schooner for a day/weekend. There are tons of them. Shouldnt be missed.

For the past 14 years we have sailed down to that area from New Brunswick Canada. It is our favourite area. This year the trip was 36 days. :)

Camden Yacht Club? - try to hook up
Schooners out of Camden or Rockland - day trip or multi - days

Fantastic area.

This pic was taken about two hours (at 5 knots) from Rockland.

A quick and easy view of the bay; take the North Haven ferry out Rockland.
Spend an hour or two on the island. You'll see some of the best sailing
The area has to offer.

I live in Rockport and we're off sailing for a few weeks. We've sailed most
Of our miles and scarcely moved the needle on the fuel tank.

A unique combination of winds and coastline make this a world class
Sailing ground.

For a few hour sail, try the Heron out of Rockport or the Surprise
Out of Camden Harbor.
