43° 42.03' N 70° 5.44' W 03 Oct 2020 02:00 None None None Cliff Island. Last time out on Casco Bay! Gorgeous foliage and spectacular afternoon light as we walked around bits of Cliff we’d never explored before. Perfect fall weather. Very nice end to the season.
43° 46.17' N 70° 3.26' W 26 Sep 2020 01:14 None None None Little Whaleboat Island. Woke up to fog and waited most of the day for it to lift. It never did but vis got better in the afternoon and we set out for this new destination. Pleasant spot, and the island (on Maine Island Trail) seems popular with locals. Picked up one of three private moorings.
43° 45.25' N 69° 59.28' W 25 Sep 2020 01:11 None None None Orr’s-Bailey Yacht Club. Another mini-cruise on this pretty fall day. Met up with friends who live on Orr’s and whose mooring we borrowed for the night. Cocktails on Kite.
43° 39.84' N 70° 14.26' W 20 Sep 2020 01:09 None None None Fish Point, Portland. Came by to check on our mooring which we haven’t used at all this summer. Nice new pennant though covered with tiny shrimp after being neglected all summer!
43° 41.54' N 70° 5.77' W 19 Sep 2020 01:06 None None None Cliff Island. Chilly but sunny, crystal clear. Nice sail to south side of Cliff for overnight anchorage - exposed to SW but perfect in today’s northerlies. Dinghied to neighboring Jewell Island for walkabout, which has nice trails plus lots of WW2 bunkers, barracks and the like, including an observation tower with amazing views. Lots of campers on the island and way too many boats in the narrow anchorage. Outboard died so Jack rowed us half mile or so back to Kite ;-))
