Cruising Maine September 2011 IX

Cruising Maine September 2011 IX Thursday, September 15, 2011 - 4 PM The Basin, New Meadows River Casco Bay, Maine Water temperature 64 F

We stopped at Long Cove (Tenants Harbor) yesterday. We were anchored by Noon and spent a peaceful afternoon at anchor. We left this morning in fog; creeping out of the harbor with radar and chartplotter giving the only indication of where the boat was and were it was going. If the instruments had quit, I would of anchored. With one hundred foot visibility dodging lobster floats was a full time job. We could have stayed at Long Cove but a nasty weather system is coming through this evening and I wanted to be in Casco Bay before it hit.

I had the main up, anchor up, washed and stowed and the boat underway (slowly) by 6:30 AM. There were six foot rollers coming from Maria but not much wind or chop. We pushed the boat hard and by 2:30 PM had covered 45 miles and were anchored in The Basin off of New Meadows River in Casco Bay. We had never been at this anchorage before but it is rated as one of the most secure anchorages on the Maine coast. Once you get through the narrow slot coming in a beautiful cove appears on the port side. There are a few boats on mooring balls and one other sailboat anchored and there is room for fifty more boats.

Right now it is the quiet before the storm. I'm in shorts and a tee shirt and we are swatting mosquitoes. In another three hours the storm will be here and we'll be real glad we are tucked in secure spot. We'll be here until at least Saturday or until the wind and seas die down.
