During the summer season we run sailing programs for ages 14+ in Maine. The coast of Maine, with its intricate and indented shoreline, is a unique segment of the North Atlantic seaboard. It is renowned among sailors for its picturesque beauty, abundant bays and harbors, rocky islands, and quiet coves. Our cruising area covers nearly 200 linear miles of the Maine coast, with countless rivers, bays, and islands to explore. The coast of Maine is rich in history. The rocky, spruce-covered islands are the summits of a prehistoric mountain range, and generations of inhabitants have made their livelihoods here. Evidence left behind on the islands reveals the historic presence of indigenous Abenaki camps, pre-colonial fishing grounds, post-colonial timber and farming operations, and early 20th century granite quarries. Cold, nutrient-rich waters flow from the Canadian Maritimes, and make the Gulf of Maine home to a wide range of sea birds, harbor seals, porpoises, and whales.
