Sailing in Ogunquit

The Silverlining is a 42ft. Sparkman and Stephens designed fractional rigged sloop built entirely of wood in 1939 by the well-respected Maine boat builder Henry Hinckley. It was especially designed to sail well in the typically light airs of the New England summer. She carries 888 sq. ft. of sail with working jib and main alone on a single 63 ft. spruce spar.
The morning cruise, 9:30 to 11:00 is the quietest sail. Generally speaking, the sea is calmest and the winds lightest.
The two 2 hour cruises thru the middle of the day offer the maximum sun exposure as well as optimum wind conditions.
The 4:30 departure is a great way to finish a day on the Maine coast: An hour and a half of fresh air before your lobster dinner.
The last trip takes you till the sun goes down. It’s a beautiful time to be on the water.
Each trip is limited to six passengers. Conditions at sea will be very much like being at the beach, but a little more extreme; windier, sunnier or cooler, whatever the day. Dress accordingly. You should wear soft-soled shoes or go barefoot. Bring a sweatshirt, sunscreen, sunglasses, and don’t forget your camera.
You may bring a light lunch, something to drink and a modest amount of alcohol. They have blankets on board if you’re cold. Call 207-646-9800 for reservations Prices range from 33.00 to 38.00 per person.
Join them and experience the sensation of time spent at sea. Let the Silverlining be the backdrop for a lasting memory of your visit to Ogunquit!
