“Great Sail”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Even though winds were light, the captain still pulled out a great sail. She found the wind where others would have been content to motor.

“Sure beats a typical motor boat ride!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Captain Bill & First Mate Jerry offered a wonderful sailing experience aboard the Eastwind. The ride was very smooth (except for a few minutes when they allowed a few novices, myself included, to "steer" the boat) and both Bill & Jerry had plenty of information & anecdotes about the harbor and islands & the boat itself. We also had the pleasure of seeing the boat builder and fleet owner out on his own sailboat in the harbor. This was a great way to see boothbay from the water (especially for those who are familiar with the region and looking for something a little more exciting than your average motor boat tour around the islands). Totally worth the money.

“Awesome Fireworks on the Eastwind”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Captain Bill and mate Charlotte were excellent hosts for the close of our July 4th celebration. Most personable and more than willing to answer questions from a novice. We highly recommend booking a sail with the Eastwind!!

“Fun Trip”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Sailed the morning cruise with new Captain Bill from Chicago and mate Charlotte. They couldn't have been more personable and friendly. We didn't have a lot of wind, but we still made it around a few of the island. The crew both had stories that were interesting and fun to listen too.
I read a few review of previous captains, but I think you will all like Captain Bill.
I would highly recommend this cruise. Hope the Captain likes the Blackhawks hat I gave him and wears it proudly.
