Sail Into A Glorious Autumn with a Windjammer Cruise

All of the windjammers have cozy, warm cabins below—just perfect for fall sailing!

As the temps cool down and the breezes pick up, the captains of the Maine Windjammer Association are pleased to offer cruises that give their passengers the best views of blazing reds, oranges and yellows that herald New England’s most famous season. With the kids headed back to school, Maine’s windjammer captains make sure their guests have every opportunity to take advantage of the quiet beaches, gorgeous vistas and pristine islands that dot Maine’s rugged coast.

Pam Houston, novelist, will be teaching a writer’s workshop aboard the Isaac H. Evans on the September 30-October 3 cruise.

For guests with a literary bent, the Isaac Evans is offering a specialty cruise called Writing on a Windjammer. It’s a rare opportunity to work with award-winning author and writing teacher, Pam Houston, while sailing amid the islands and coastal towns along the rocky coast of Maine. Watch for sea birds, whales, porpoises, and lighthouses, and enjoy delicious food, world-class writing instruction, authentic adventure, and camaraderie.

Fall breezes offer some of the best sailing of the season. Here, Schooner Heritage takes a tack across Penobscot Bay.

All the vessels offer spectacular sailing in protected waters, lobster bakes, scrumptious food by award-winning chefs and cozy nights under a blanket of stars. Columbus Day Weekend marks the end of the season, with lots of 3-, 4- and 6-day sailing options available between now and then.
