A big "Thank you!" to our passengers for a great 2012 season. It was a pleasure sharing good company, great sailing, wonderful food and the beauty of the Maine coast with all of you.

The crew completed getting the schooners ready for winter just in time for Hurricane Sandy. Here in Camden, we only experienced high winds and seas, and some power outages. The Grace Bailey, Mercantile and Mistress all rode out the storm with no damage. My thoughts go out to all of you who were in the path of things and were not so fortunate.

We're getting ready for our annual calendar mailing and other preparations for the 2013 season. We hope to see you all then!

Watch for our E-specials on our website or just call for the best deals for 2013. Gift certificates are available for the holidays or any special anniversary or birthday.

Be sure to plan extra early if you want a spot on the 6-passenger Mistress or any special accommodations on the big boats.
