Check out the summer cruise schedule under Club Cruises. Kevin and Frederique O’Keeffe are coordinating our summer cruise — watch for emails from them, or simply send them your ideas. I’ve also started a new feature under Club Cruises, called “Favorite Harbors” — write up a description of your favorite harbor, send it to me, and I’ll post it!

Lunch at Lincolnville

Thinking of pulling into Lincolnville?  Do it!

We easily picked up a mooring and went ashore for a nice lunch at McLaughlin’s. There is ample dinghy tie-up at the dock adjoining the ferry terminal. The mooring field shallows rapidly from 60 to 15 feet; best to grab the big yellow mooring that says, “be our guest.” Information in the “Cruising Guide” is a little outdated.
