Airing the Canvas at the Close of Camden’s Season

Most of our Maine harbors have gone into hibernation for the year, with docks pulled and shrinkwrap applied. And yet even as we’re tucking in for a long winter’s nap, every so often a sail or two will appear on the horizon and remind us that a few hardy souls are squeezing every hour they can out of the sailing season.

Here are a few shots from Camden Harbor, where the docks at Wayfarer Marine were still quite lively recently as a blend of classic and modern yachts performed a few final tasks. Even this morning, I spied a handful of holdouts, boaters who seemingly are playing a game of chicken with each other and Old Man Winter. Are there any boats left in the water in your favorite harbor?
