I've wanted for years to go on a windjammer cruise. And I'm thrilled that my first experience was on the J&E Riggin! I will definitely do it again. The food was amazing, the crew members were awesome, and the view of the Maine coast was breathtaking. And getting to help out with the meals, the hoisting of the sails, and... More

I've sailed on the J&E Riggin 12 or 13 times now. Built in 1927 as a Chesapeake Bay oyster boat, the Riggin is broad, stable, and can be very fast with good wind. I've never known anyone to be seasick on this boat. I am in love with this experience, with this boat, with Captains Jon Finger and Annie Mahle... More

Perfection! I went with the Alewives "Lucy Boston" stitch along. Captain John, Captain Annie, Hatch, Erin and Chive were all capable and kind. They obviously love what they do and it never appears to be a "job." Captain Annie is also Chef Annie and the food was gourmet, delicious and ample (understatement). I never sailed before and really had nothing... More

Okay, so I was going to say how absolutely wonderful sailing the J&E Riggin with Captains Annie and Jon was, but I was afraid everyone would sign up for a cruise and then there wouldn't be any spots for me... What the heck, I'll do it... SAILING THE J&E RIGGIN WITH CAPTAINS ANNIE AND JON WAS THE BEST!!! I sailed... More

A friend and I booked the 4 day "Captain's Choice" cruise and enjoyed every minute of it. For starters, there is nothing better than sailing the Coast of Maine on a beautiful 1927 Schooner. When you add to that: incredible gourmet meals, the attentiveness of Captain Jon and Co-Captain Annie, and the terrific Crew, you have the recipe for a... More

I was looking for a knitting workshop and came across this sailing adventure. The 6 day trip was more than just a knitting workshop, it became a trip that soothed and refreshed my soul. Capt. Jon, Annie and their crew took care of me and the other guests like we were beloved family members. The food was outstanding, exquisite, yet... More

The week was fabulous. I learned new techniques even though I am an experienced knitter. The crew could not have been any better. I am an inexperienced sailor but they helped me learn the ways of the sea. Come and join the adventure. I will be back.
