Windjammer Destinations: Blue Hill Bay

On longer sails windjammer captains often head north into Blue Hill Bay.

The secluded upper section off Blue Hill and East Blue Hill is popular.

This bay often has warmer, more pleasant conditions during rougher weather. It's also a good area to watch other sailboats tacking around in the more sheltered waters.

On the eastern shore is the west coast of Mt. Desert Island, while North Brooklin and other nice coastal spots lies to the west.

Blue Hill Bay is a good reason to try a longer windjammer sailing trip.
