Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2022

We stumbled upon this on the internet and booked a trip without any info. Wow, we are glad we did! Wonderful to be unplugged on the oldest windjammer in the US. Peaceful, world class views, great grew, good food (prepared on a wood stove in the galley), and some exciting stops (like the Swan's Island Music Festival and our lobster boil on the beach). We were part of a group of 21 passengers and 5 crew. You never feel cramped. Plenty of room to spread out on deck. The berths are small, but you're only in them for sleeping (at night or a sea nap). Watching the operation of this boat is fascinating. She has two tall masts and carries 6 sails. You can participate or not in hoisting sails, etc. No pressure. We can't say enough good things about this experience. We had many special moments and any one of them would have made the trip worthwhile.
