We have never spent so much time outfitting the American Eagle as this spring 
while awaiting the go ahead from the Governor and the CDC. Everything has been repaired, repainted, and fussed over down to the battery box covers, bilges to the mastheads and crosstrees. 

We got the green light to sail under guidelines for restaurants, lodging, and overnight cruises, starting July first.  We contacted guests who had reserved and the majority of you responded with apprehension and some misgivings. After considerable thought of how to meet the new standards appropriately I just didn't see how having trips this season was prudent for guests, crew, and our Maine community. No trips this year; refunds or rebooking for 2021 instead.

     So here's the  trip schedule for next season!

  Typically this time of year we'd have pictures of picnics, sailing, and guests enjoying
  the  coast of Maine. Closest I can come to that are shots of the crew taking a break 
  from work and exploring by small boats, again documented by Sarah.
