Yesterday we took a short sail around Southport Island to get out of the Sheepscot river and into the Boothbay Harbor region. As we expected we ran into a lot of chop getting out of the Sheepscot river, but the wind was good and a close reach brought us just around the lighthouse at “The Cuckolds”, the rocks at the end of Southport Island.
It only works when there is enough wind, and you need to head in exactly the same direction as the wind. It turned out that was the situation we were dealing with so we flew wing on wing right into Linekin Harbor. Just past the Cuckolds, we spotted two dolphins and watched them swiftly swim away. We anchored in Linekin Bay next to Emme, a fellow Seven Seas Cruising Association vessel.
