SPRING IS IN THE AIR


SPRING IS IN THE AIR

It's hard to believe but here we are at the beginning of March!  The winter has flown by.  Maine's coastal winter has been fairly mild with alternate snow and rain storms. 

The Snow Punxsutawney Phil 2020Bowl is still open to skiing, snowboarding, and tubing thanks to the ability to make snow during the cold nights and upstate ski resorts have fared well. 

For once Punxsutawney Phil may have been correct with his prediction of an early spring.  In town most of the snow has melted away confusing gardens and hibernating animals.  I'm sure we will manage a couple of spring snow events, but right now it's looking and feeling like early spring! 

 

Becky and OB have been here through the winter keeping a close eye on the schooners and working on projects at the shop.  Crew is scheduled to arrive March 30th to begin spring fit-out in earnest.

                          

Hopefully if the weather holds the Grace Bailey, Mercantile and Mistress will be in tip top shape ready for passengers and a busy 2020 sailing season ahead of schedule.  We'll keep you posted on Facebook!
