Most coastal-living Mainers have either been on a sailboat or enjoy watching them bob up and down the bay. This is the perfect time of year for sailing with crisp ocean breezes and warm, summer sun. Even if you don’t own your own boat, there are still opportunities to enjoy the power of the wind and sea as it was back in the early 1900s with a windjammer cruise with a group such as the Portland Schooner Company. Whether its joining a group for a sail around Casco Bay or chartering your own cruise – windjammers are a great way to experience sailing.
Even if you live nowhere near a coast, and have no desire to sail, you can surround yourself with nautical decor with our Cuddledown “Mer” bedding in shades of deep ocean blue. “Mer” is the French word for sea or ocean, and with the crisp 350 thread count percale fabric trimmed with jaunty, white piping, you’ll feel like your bed is on a yacht sailing around Cape Cod, or even perhaps Casco Bay!
