Sailing the Bay

Check out this picture of “Sagacious” taken from my friends on “Sally W”!   Looking forward to taking out more charter guests on Penobscot Bay for a private sailing charter! Sagacious has a few upgrades this year including a brand new dodger (thanks to my friends at Lyman-Morse at Wayfarer).   Bring on the sunshine, warm temps and fair winds!

Second best one

Fantastic First Sail

Enjoyed the first sail of the season on May 25.  Perfect breeze and amazing views of Penobscot Bay as well as a few schooners!  All systems “go” on Sagacious! Camden Harbor, Maine is starting to fill up.  Can’t wait to fill my boat with charter guests!

Best Sunset of the Summer!

What a wonderful sunset on August 24!  Check out the pictures of Sagacious heading in to Camden Harbor.   The haze created by the California wildfires made for a spectacular sunset.  This, in combination with an easy southwest breeze, made for a perfect sail with Camden Sailing Charters!

Spectacular Clouds over Penobscot Bay

Had a wonderful evening sail this evening with charter guests Jennifer and Eric.   Eric was celebrating his 60th birthday and Jennifer surprised him with a charter on Sagacious.  It was really quite the birthday, complete with oysters on the half shell and lobster!   As we sailed out of Camden you could see thunderstorms to the north of us.  Check out the wild cloud formation – quite a beautiful sight!

Another great day on Penobscot Bay!

What a great day on Penobscot Bay with the Mahogany Salon of Camden, Maine:  https://mahoganysalon.net.  On July 30, the entire salon took sail for their annual sailing charter on Sagacious.  The weather was perfect – one of those rare days where the temperatures were not unlike the Caribbean!

Once we left the harbor and rounded Curtis Island Light we turned north and headed up the bay.  A beautiful gentle breeze kicked up just as 3 harbor porpoises played tag off of our stern.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen them that close to the boat – it was truly exhilarating to see these animals racing around our wake!

The next stop was a lunch at Warren Island State Park.  The entire salon, went for a swim off the boat and even managed to coerce Captain Nancy in.  After our refreshing swim, we continued on through Gilkey Harbor to see a ton of seals napping on Minot Ledge.   Passing the Ensign Islands we then turned to starboard for a brisk sail at 7.4 knots back to Camden Harbor.  Can’t wait to take them out again next year!

Here’s a short video of us under sail!

Sunshine on Penobscot Bay!

It is has been a beautiful week for sailing on Penobscot Bay. We have had spectacular blue skies, good winds and warm temps!   Check out the beautiful photos from Scott & Retta on their private charter. The fog cleared out just as we left Camden Harbor.  What a shot of Curtis Island lighthouse!  If you are looking for a sail that has a “personal touch”, and  is different from the typical tourist tours, make sure to give Captain Nancy a call at (207)691-6547 or write to nancy@camdensailingcharters.com.
