Sail the Maine coast aboard a former cargo schooner and relive the great days of sail on a tall-masted schooner, and spend carefree days among the islands of Maine.
A special treat for our September 9 departure is a "sail-in" to Brooklin, the site of the Wooden Boat School. There will be a gathering of classic wood vessels, and tours and shore festivities.
We will board the Grace Bailey on Sunday, September 9th any time after 5:00 pm, check in, and then go to dinner. The Grace Bailey will leave the dock on Monday morning and return to port on Friday at 10:00 am. The Wooden Boat Sail-in to Brooklin is scheduled for Tuesday. The cruise also includes all meals (Monday breakfast through Friday brunch), including a lobster bake on one of the islands, pillows, sheets, blankets and towels, and a five-day parking permit for your vehicle. Carbonated and alcoholic beverages are not included, but you are welcome to bring your own and use the built-in cooler on deck. The boat is configured with 9 cabins with double bed, 4 cabins with 2 single beds, and 3 single cabins. There are 4 heads below decks, one in each passenger area. There are also hot fresh-water showers below decks. The boat only accommodates 29 passengers, so act fast.
