Customer Testimonials


First time sailing..........and my first trip to Maine. Both were awesome.
Nancy is the "Captain" for me!

Martha Piccola - Dalton, GA

Sagacious and her captain were as inviting as the breezy Maine day we spent on Penobscot Bay. Don't miss this chance to sail the coast and see some of Maine's most beautiful lighthouses, coastline and sea-life.

The Wilsons - New Canaan, CT

Our day of sailing with Captain Nancy was outstanding. Along with being a real “pro” she is gracious and informative. We were delighted to be able to take the helm for quite a while which made it even more enjoyable.

Errol Unikel – Gainsville, VA

Dear Capt. Nancy,
We had a great time sailing with you on Sagacious! The beauty of Maine's coast only can be appreciated from the deck of a sailboat. Thanks for making our sail enjoyable for a grandfather, grandmother, mother, grandson and his friend - 3 generations. Thanks for letting the experienced "drive" and the novices "crew."
Your hospitality matched the pleasure and beauty of the sail. Thanks again for a great time! See you on our next Maine vacation.

Really amazing sail with Nancy on the Sagacious.  We surprised my Sisters with a half day sail and it was a blast  Nancy made us feel so comfortable and allowed us to be part of the whole sailing experience.  I hope we have the opportunity to sail with her again!
