Sailing on the Pinky Maine

It is nearly Labor Day weekend and we have had a full summer of sailing on the Pinky Maine. The Pinky Maine is available for charter and we have had some great charter experiences this summer. We had our first overnight charter for a lovely couple from the Berkshires, we have taken large families for six hour sails to Manchester and back and this coming weekend we are taking a crew of experienced mariners out to particpate in the 25th annual Gloucester Schooner Festival. The Pinky Maine was also our summer home for us as we cruised in Maine for nearly three weeks in July. We reached great places like Valley Cove near Southwest Harbor, Dix Island, Port Clyde, Jewell Island to name a few. A highpoint was the four days we spent with Charles and Maria Burnham aboard their Friendship Sloop "Resolute." We raced in Rockland Harbor during the Friendship Sloop Days while also taking friends out for a sail on the Pinky Maine.

Anyway, this is the time to join us on the Pinky Maine. We think fall sailing is among the best as the breezes are freshest and when it is cool there is nothing like a mug of hot mulled cider off our wood stove to spice things up!
