Windjammer Cruising Area: Merchant's Row

Just south and east of Stonington on Deer Isle is a group of small islands.

They are known as Merchant's Row, and when you have your lobster bake there's a good chance it will be on one of these little islands.

All are pretty and largely deserted. The schooners try to stay out of each others' way to provide a secluded atmosphere.

Rocky shores are the norm, but the captain's know where the sandy beaches can be found. There is some hiking opportunity on most of the isles.

Merchant's row is one of my favorite places to sail. It gives the whole "Maine has over 3,000 island on its coast" a visual for all who sail through.
