Captain Sam
(left photo) and some
of the fabulous crew!

I think four of the crew members are licensed captains themselves!

Captain Sam has
sailed throughout the world. We are in experienced hands!

Here are some more photos. If it looks like we're having a great time, we were! The waters are very protected because of the islands. That doesn't mean a storm can't roll through and get things moving, but as sailing goes it's pretty flat and pretty good!

We anchor every night and most nights we'll take the dinghy boat to shore to hike or find a coffeeshop.
There's even an island with a craft brewery. Needless to say, that was very popular with the last trip!

IMPORTANT: This isn't a Carnival type cruise. There are no TV's and WiFi is hard to come by. Thankfully, there's no boomboxes or loud music to try to hide from. Bring your music to listen to, but also bring earbuds or headphones! We usually get a cell signal at least once a day to do our emailing and Facebooking, but this journey is about disconnecting with the outside world. Reading, writing, meditating, singing, and good old fashioned talking to each other is what I found most valuable on the Victory Chimes. The gorgeous islands, the eagles, the loons, the porpoises and possibly even whales entertain us. It's the best opportunity to recharge our batteries and all the while having expert meals prepared for us by a real gem of a cook, Chef Miller.

If all this sounds good to you, click this link to go to the Victory Chimes website and book yourself a fantastic vacation.

There's swimming, dinghy boat rides to the shore of different islands and incredible sunsets and sunrises!

And I can't say enough about the food. I don't eat a lot of meat, and Chef Miller accomodated me and the other veggie leaning guests with great entrees. The carivores had no complaints, either. He covered all the bases with an A+ rating from all. Check out the TRIP ADVISOR reviews!

 

Alcohol is allowed, but you need to bring it.
Beer, wine, whatever. There's not a cash bar or anything like that. The VC provides water, coffee
and tea. And desserts. Oh, my. There's even a
"pre breakfast" on deck for early risers,
with fresh scones and muffins around 7am.

Breakfast is then served at 8am
and it's not to be missed.

During this week of August, the Perseid Meteor Shower will be taking place. There's no guarantee of seeing any shooting stars, but it's our best opportunity of the year if the clouds clear out. On a great night, several hundred are possible per hour.

And we'll be on a sailboat off the Maine coast, away from city lights. The odds of seeing some are greatly increased just with that reality!

 

Plus, I'll be performing for you and the other
guests in a private, intimate concert. Three
nights, three different one hour shows. If you
have a favorite DW song, let me know!
It's informal, as if you were in my living room.

AND it's my birthday that week! I can't think of a better way to celebrate than with you and other like minded, nature loving, adventure seeking friends. Life goes fast, as we're reminded every day.

Are you interested? Call them. 800.745.5651 .Check out their website. Mention you heard about it from your pal Dennis. As you can imagine, there are not a lot of sleeping berth options, so seriously, if you want to do this, don't dawdle. The people who reserve first have first dibs on the bigger bedrooms. But the smaller ones are fine, too. Don't fret if the bigger rooms are all gone by the time you reserve.
It's about the experience.

Cost: Basic rooms with all the great food for the five night cruise: $1,035 per person.

I truly hope you'll consider it. If it's not your thing
(you prefer your bath towels folded into animal and bird images like on the big cruise ships) that's cool. Feel free to forward this to anyone you think
would appreciate this experience.

If you have questions, email me.  As you can tell
from this writing, I'll be upfront about the
experience and what you can expect.

Thank you and let's go sailing together!

- Dennis
