Sailing with Joel on his beautiful wooden sloop is an experience that simply can not be beat. The Fox Islands are like no where else on the east coast, and there is no better way to see them than from the deck of a ship. Captain Joel is quite at home in these waters, and his knowledge of the area... More

Sailing the Tammy Norie with Joel was maybe the highlight of my most recent Maine trip. Tammy Norie is a gorgeous, classic boat, and with her distinctive burgundy sails she is well recognized in and around Penobscot Bay. If you're going to sail this historic area, you really should experience it in an actual wooden sailboat, not some fiberglass tub.... More

Tammy Norie is a amazing wooden boat. Anyone with the basic appreciation for sailing craft and the art of sailing, will find this vessel a true joy. To boot, Penobscot Bay may be the most amazing coastline anywhere in the world, from the long history, to the rugged mountains, to the people and communities the dot the islands. Tammy's recognizable... More

Captain Joel took us out for a leisurely afternoon cruise. It was incredibly relaxing - he took care of everything! I would highly recommend a sail with him; he is a confident captain with an easy-going attitude.

This was by far the best sailboat charter I have been on. Gorgeous views of the Fox Islands and many more in beautiful Penobscot Bay. Not only did I enjoy my trip but also learned a bit from the well established Captain Joel. A delight to cruise with him.

We sailed with Captain Joel for a week from Rockland to Stonington and back. The boat had plenty of room and was a blast to sail. The captain certainly knows his stuff and the waters having run Outward Bound sailing courses in them for many years. We learned more about sailing in 1 week than we did in 5 years... More

A few friends and I decided to contact Blue Yonder when visiting North Haven Island in September, and upon our first steps aboard Tammy Norie, I had a feeling that we made a solid choice. Capt. Joel is super friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and a down to earth guy who went out of his way to ensure that we were all... More

If you are itching to get out on the water and find yourself in or around North Haven, make sure you give Capt. Joel a call! I had the pleasure of spending a unforgettable afternoon and evening aboard the Tammy Norie! Joel is a responsible and laid back Captain. From the moment you come aboard, it is evident you are...

My husband and I have sailed a few times with Captain Joel and have made it a family tradition every year. It's an amazing experience that is always different and unique, more so than any other sailing experience we've had on our travels. Joel is a former outward bound sailing instructor so is an expert sailor as much as he... More

My wife & I spent a lovely July afternoon in the capable hands of Capt. Joel and a teenager he was training to sail. Despite growing up in Kansas, Joel handled the boat expertly. He was also a great tour guide, pointing out interesting places & their background, as well as a smattering of natural history. Highlights included a nest... More
