Stay 2 nights at Windward House and take an afternoon sail aboard the Heron and enjoy an educational narrative. Learn about the history of the once busy industrial town. Rockport was won in a card game in Boston by Robert Thorndike in 1769 and separated from Camden after a dispute over replacing the collapsed Goose River bridge.
Rockport processed lime rock for over 200 years and it’s great schooners lined the waterfront loaded cargoes of processed lime or ice ready for export to distant ports all over the world.
We will explore the history of magical Indian Island lighthouse as we sail by and learn what lead to Rockport’s decline and the private sale Indian Island light in 1934.
With a prevailing afternoon southerly breeze Heron will take the Penobscot Bay in her stride and head towards Robinson’s Rock, home of the famous Andre the seal. With favorable wind and tide we can sail close to the ledges and often see dozens and sometimes hundreds of seals asking on the ledges.
Complimentary soft drinks (hot tea coffee to boot!) will make for a perfect way to spend an afternoon aboard this legendary classic on the magnificent Penobscot Bay.Sailing daily mid-June through September.
