“Five days of fun”

Maine Windjammer Cruises -Sally Harbor
Reviewed August 1, 2017

Maine Windjammers with Captain Ray and Captain Chris was a great way to spend five days seeing the islands of downeast Maine. They promise an authentic Windjammer sailing experience and they deliver.
My wife and I spent five days on the Grace Bailey, with a revolving cast of other travelers, ranging in age from 12 to 74, and all were interesting and fun.
But much to my surprise, the hardworking crew (Obi, Brad, Tyler, and Reuben) turned out to be terrifically interesting people in their own rights. Obi is a softspoken giant who makes his own musical instruments. Brad talks knowledgeably with passengers about Halo and Andrew Lloyd Weber Musicals, Tyler's lasagne ranks up with the best of your Italian nana, and Reuben is taking a break from working on housing in devastated regions of the world.
They and the Captains are the true social lubricant on this boat, keeping everyone happy and fed.
The work is real, if you are willing (raising and lowering sails and anchors), and the boat is genuine (cabins for two are about 3 by 6), but they will show you every nook and cranny. For instance, Captain Chris explained how the rudder gear box worked, while we greased it).
This is not a luxury cruise. You'll want a good shower when you come home, but it is a really rewarding and fun experience.
