Learn to capture the joy of nature and enjoy the thrill of sailing through Maine’s pristine island archipelago rich with wildlife (magnificent megafauna!) and textured by dramatic island geology. Grab your camera and binoculars for this 6-day sailing adventure with award winning photographer Jim Dugan and renowned Audubon naturalists Mike and Margi Shannon. Jim has taught photography at the world renowned Maine Photographic Workshops and makes his living as a professional photographer shooting everything from celebrities to celery. Jim will show us what is possible with a very modest digital camera including presentations of his own work as well as a fun-filled evening of work created by participants aboard. Mike and Margi Shannon will help us appreciate the mega and micro fauna and flora that make Maine one of the East coast’s most naturally vibrant areas to explore. We’ll make an extra special effort to get offshore to welcome Atlantic puffins back to their nesting grounds here along the Maine coast. Celebrate the longest days of the year exploring island and intertidal ecology ashore and experience great sailing with the crew of the legendary windjammer Mary Day.
