Government Island Circumnavigation

Summer returned to Portland for the weekend and we had a great time on the boat. After going to the farmer’s market Saturday morning we packed up a few things and headed to the marina. We sailed up to the old dock on Government Island and cooked our farmer’s market oysters and tuna on the BBQ.

Sunday we awoke to sunshine streaming into the cabin. During our leisurely breakfast we were hit by a particularly big wake and the hatch board we had laid out to dry slipped over the side. Luckily it was in only 6 feet of water and the captain was able to retrieve it.

On the way back to the marina we took the long way around the island and had a beautiful sail!
