Sailing Moves Into New Home on Orr’s Island Archives

In the mood to look at beautiful photographs of Maine’s coast? Photographer Dennis Griggs rode a boat alongside the sailboats as they were towed last week from Bethel Point to their new home at the Coastal Studies Center on Orr’s Island.

The new sailing facility at Orr’s Island has improved locker rooms, and meeting and storage spaces for the sailing team. It also doubles as a classroom for students doing research at the Coastal Studies Center.

Frank Pizzo, head sailing coach, has said that the sailing conditions might be even better at the new location than at Bethel Point. “We are so grateful for this opportunity and we’re looking forward to moving into our new home,” he said.
