Preliminary planning for a small sail raid event in New England.
Big thanks to OarClub member Chris Mullins - looks like it will be a near replica of the Maine (the Pine Tree state) cruise he documented.
This was the cruise, in short...
Wed 1 July: Belfast Harbor to Cradle Cove, Seven Hundred Acre Island.
Thu 2 July: Cradle Cove to Camden, then Rockland.
Fri 3 July: Rockland to Carver Cove,Vinalhaven Island via Fox Island Thorofare.
Sat 4 July: Carver Cove to Northhaven, then to Bass Harbor, Mt. Desert Island via Deer Island Thorofare and Casco Passage.
Sun 5 July: Bass Harbor to Somesville, Head of Somes Sound, then Northeast Harbor.
Mon 6 July: Northeast Harbor to Blue Hill Harbor.
Tue 7 July: Blue Hill Harbor to Bucks Harbor via Eggemoggin Reach.
Wed 8 July: Bucks Harbor to Belfast Harbor.
Chris' cruise was the above 8-day time frame. Am thinking of modifying some legs so that the primary course will be fall inside of one week - but allow for an optional extended version for those who want to enjoy the full length cruise.
