If you love cruising Maine or have been planning a trip to Maine, here’s a Zoom presentation you won’t want to miss. The editors of the CCA Digital Cruising Guide to Maine guides.cruisingclub.org are teaming up with Maine Coast Heritage Trust to present a talk about cruising the most beautiful parts of the Maine Coast, including a few of the 150 public land preserves conserved by MCHT since 1970. Those who know Maine will know about MCHT, an organization started over 50 years ago by CCA members Peggy Rockefeller and Tom Cabot. They sought to preserve the most scenic places along the Maine Coast from development, and, in the intervening years, this organization has succeeded beyond Peggy and Tom’s wildest expectations.
The Zoom talk will be given at 4 p.m. EDT on May 24 by CCA’s Sandy Andrews and MCHT’s Jane Arbuckle. Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) conserves and stewards Maine’s coastal lands and islands, known for their scenic beauty, ecological value, outdoor recreational opportunities, and contribution to community well-being.
Sandy Andrews has cruised Maine since he was three years old and lives on Mount Desert Island, where he volunteers to help with MCHT’s activities. Sandy has been instrumental in writing about many of Maine’s favorite harbors and anchorages for the CCA Cruising Guide to Maine. The guide aims to inform Maine cruisers about the best locations. Using modern Internet technologies, it simplifies cruise planning by sharing comprehensive, up-to-date information about the 75 best harbors and anchorages and is free to anyone in the cruising community.
The presentation will highlight the best MCHT preserves for cruisers and share details about accessing these magnificent places from the water by sail or power boat.
