On Silent Wings of Canvas

...[T]he truth is that the sailor's Maine, the "real Maine," is right there out of Portland Harbor where Casco Bay begins. 
Maine is a sailing paradise, and the roughly 240 square miles of Casco Bay, dotted with its 365 islands, is a sampler of its joys. The cool air is so clean that a city dweller's lungs want to burst with the marvel of it; the water is so clear you can see the lobsters scurry over the bottom; the winds rise on most days to take you on silent wings of canvas to new delights.
