"Pentail and I arrive in Rockland, Maine, the planned put-in. Rockland is the "gateway to Penobscot Bay," and a straight shot to Vinalhaven and North Haven Islands. But it's also open to weather from the Gulf of Maine. The clerk at "Rockland Boat" predicts, with local confidence, a week of fine weather so in we go at Snow Marine Park. The ramp is south of town next to the Outward Bound school and has long-term parking. It's a comfort to know that they confidently launch open boats full of kids into the Bay all summer armed only with oars and a few sails. The demon of Maine summer cruising is here today… fog. It's a light one and over the week I came to treat fog like a shipmate."
