Each cruise starts and ends in Rockland Harbor. The first day focuses on sailing theory, sail trim and boat maneuvering as we work our way across beautiful Penobscot Bay to anchor in a quiet harbor off Vinalhaven Island. The second day builds on the first with more sail handling and the introduction of traditional navigation followed by a trip ashore for a hike around fascinating Hurricane Island.


After two days of repetitive practice, the last day sees you as the captains with the (supervised) responsibility of getting us back to Rockland Harbor.


While each cruise is packed with new skills, the carefully designed "hands-on" nature of the program leaves you breathless but exhilarated by your accomplishments.
