    Early Junket Details

    Timing has been confirmed for the early junket:
    Departing from Stockton Springs Harbor at about 1000, Monday, August 26. Also two other boats departing from Belfast Monday morning, possibly to rendezvous en route to Holbrook.
    Sail to Holbrook Island (adjacent to Castine), anchor and moorings there for Monday night.
    Depart Holbrook Island Tuesday morning, followed by overnight somewhere about halfway to Gouldsboro. Swans Island??
    Wednesday morning continue on to Gouldsboro for the main junket.

    Another boat will be leaving Belfast on Wednesday, August 28, first stopover at Wooden Boat in Brooklin for Wednesday night. Rendezvous there with another boat, and sail toward Gouldsboro on Thursday. Probably Thursday night in Northeast Harbor, arrive Gouldsboro on Friday.

    Not all these boats are JR – everybody is welcome!

    Reports are coming in from the Early Junket. Some on land campers have arrived in Gouldsboro, and three boats came in to Joy Bay yesterday evening, and are presently anchored. Two more are expected on Friday, cruising, as well as local and trailer boats. Our JR census isn't so big this year, so far, especially because some boats are not *yet* JR, but planned to be by next year. Loads of good conversation, regardless of particular rigs on the boats!

    Our friend, Craig Pursell, who is a professional photographer, rode along on Alert for the first leg of the early junket, and took these marvelous photos.
