Greetings from the Maine coast. Spring is past and it feels a lot like summer, complete with morning haze, afternoon breezes, and evening thunder showers to cool things off. The American Eagle for some reason is about as busy as we have ever been. Maybe it's the bays and islands here, maybe it's the crew, or perhaps it's the vessel, working and sailing well after 87 years.

Not to be discouraged; Shary would be happy to find you a berth this season  when you call.

Exciting sailing to Boothbay and back for Windjammer Days, featuring a genuine shore dinner at Cabbage Island, visiting schooners form Cape Ann, a snug anchorage in the turning basin in Boothbay Harbor, fireworks that night, and a visit to Port Clyde on the way home. And sighting some finback whales, puffins, seals, and a bald eagle or two. Can't wait for Windjammer Days in 2019. 

 Next month we participate in the Great Schooner Race and  the Lighthouse Parade here in Penobscot Bay and an eleven night adventure to New Brunswick, Canada.
