Windjammer Cruising Overview Map

Here is a topo map view of the overall maximum Maine windjammer sailing area. Most cruises keep to Penobscot and Blue Hill bays.

On longer sails you may get to Frenchman Bay if the wind is strong and favorable.

The farthest port of call, Boothbay, is off this map to the southwest past South Bristol.

Most windjammers do not venture much south and west of Owl's Head regularly due to the usual prevailing conditions which require beating into the wind.

You can also see some of the surrounding inland area to get an idea where towns are located.
