Delayed departure for Portland

I have decided to delay my departure for Portland MA until tomorrow for a better weather window.

  1. Hi,

    I just found your blog while I was searching the internet for any tips about anchoring near Rockport, MA. I live in Amesbury, MA and sail out of Portsmouth, NH. I saw you sailing out at the mouth of the Piscataqua last evening. Hope you are enjoying Portsmouth!

  2. I did have a great time in the shadow of the Navy Prison. Wow, I am glad I never had to visit it during my 30 years in the Navy - I guess it actually closed after I had only been in for about 2 years.

    As for Rockport, don't even think about going into the harbor - it is very tight and every boat has a bow and stern anchor. I suggest you go around the point to the East and anchor near the beach. You will find lots of other cruisers for company but also a lot of lobster pots. Try to get there in daylight so you can see the pot bouys
