Sailing down Eggemoggin Reach is one of those quintessential experiences we have treasured for years. There is flat water, beautiful scenery, a parade of boats under sail, and almost no lobster gear, frequently fog-free. What else could one ask for? After decades of reveling in this experience, we have come to realize it is rare that one is able to truly reach all the way from Bucks Harbor at the NW end to Jericho Bay at the SE end because the SW breeze tends to bend around the south end of the Reach and put you hard on the wind for the last couple of miles. At that point, you have a choice: trim sheets and start tacking or relax and lay off to port and sail into one of four exceptional anchorages. They are Benjamin River, Center Harbor, Wooden Boat School/Babson Island, or behind the Torrey Islands. For many years, we would elect to put into the Benjamin River for the night, a peaceful, almost pastoral place with moorings to rent or space to anchor. We have also picked up a mooring off of Center Harbor Yacht Club to surround ourselves with classic wooden yachts and daysailors, and a few times we have anchored or picked up a mooring off Wooden Boat School, again surrounded by dozens of wooden marine masterpieces and sheltered by Babson Islands.
