Windjammer Log Part 2: Scheduling

When considering a Maine Windjammer sail, length of cruise is very important to most. Sailings range from 3 to 6 days. A few boats offer some weekend overnight sails.

A majority of experienced sailors have a definite preference on cruise duration. Some of the schooners have fashioned their schedules around this current fact.

How long to sail depends on a few things beside the maximum time you have available. If it is a first time Windjammer cruise, a good idea of the type of atmosphere Maine Windjamming provides is pretty important. Some of this "atmosphere" differs slightly by boat, but there is a common experience shared by all.

More soon....
