Can You Sail a Traditional Schooner from Kennebunkport?

Schooner Eleanor Take a 2 Hour sail from Kennebunkport aboard a traditional, gaff rigged, 55′ schooner, The Schooner Eleanor. The trip starts from the Arundel Wharf dock which is located at the foot of the hill below the Captain Lord Mansion.  The Schooner Eleanor’s brochure says “Your trip begins with a short motor out the historic Kennebunk River, passing lobster boats and luxury yachts.  Once clear of the river, the sails are set and the wind takes charge.  A typical course takes the boat along the scenic coastline from Cape Arundel to Cape Porpoise.  Watch lobstermen work and seabirds glide by.  Learn a little local history.  Help work the sails or sit back and relax and enjoy the fresh salt air.  The peace and quiet of cruising under sail will put a smile on your face.”  Bev and I always enjoy our sailing adventures on this beautiful schooner.  It is relaxing to the max!
