All our sailing trips begin with a short motorboat ride to the moored sloop. Once everyone is aboard the captain hoists sail while a guest takes the wheel. The first course takes us past the Historic Lighthouse perched the South point of the Rockland Breakwater. From there the best use of the wind and weather determines the afternoon's course. No matter what direction the Rambler is headed we are surrounded by the beauty of Maine's shores, Camden Hills, and the magnificent Owls Head Lighthouse. It is not uncommon to spot a seal alongside and if you listen carefully the puff of a spout of water will guide you to the sight of sleek black porpoises. Captain Parker is always ready to share stories of sailing, the coast along with local the local knowledge you won't find in books or magazines. Other than that there is no set itinerary. The elements dictate there can't be. It's find it's nicer to quietly sail five miles on a less windy day than to motor ten miles because three lighthouses were promised. The fare for a three hour cruise is $375 but that allows you to have up to six people in your party
Born in Brooklyn New York in 1956, I started sailing the waters of New England as a teenager. Becoming a licensed captain by age 20, I have skippered over a dozen schooners and traditional craft. In 1986 I purchased and restored the historic 67-foot schooner Wendameen, dedicating four years to her restoration and sailed her until 2004. In the winter I build and restore ship models for clients ranging from private collectors to galleries and museums. I am also a published author with books ranging from children's and young adult stories to volumes on maritime history.
There is no better way to appreciate the Maine coast than from the water. Penobscot Bay is well protected by land making the experience enjoyable for even the most novice sailor.
