Nicole and Ramiro met 20 years ago while sailing in Key West, Florida. They were married on top of Mt. Battie in Camden, Maine. Then they set sail working on several charter and private sailing yachts in Maine and the Caribbean; dreaming of the day when they would own their own boat.
After 9 more exciting years together, they returned to Camden to start a family. Their daughter, Delfina, was born and four years later, they added their furry friend Lucy to the family.
Their dream of owning a boat and working together as a family has come true. This is their fourth year owning the Schooner Surprise. Nicole and Ramiro are thrilled to carry on the tradition of sailing the Surprise in Penobscot Bay. They look forward to showing you what they love about Camden Maine and why they love being out on the water.
There is still snow on the ground and we are less then 6 weeks away from the start of our season! We have been working hard to get Surprise and Anjacaa ready for launching in just a few weeks. We will be sailing Surprise in her 99th year on the water with new sails this year and she has had lots of brightwork done down below. She also had a new head put in, so we can all thank Ramiro for that! We are also very excited to be able to offer another different sailing experience aboard Sloop Anjacaa this summer. She will only take a maximum of six guests and offers a bit more of an intimate ride. She is a great sailing boat in both light and heavy breezes and is sure to be a lot of fun for passengers. Our popular live music and homemade dessert sails will be back this summer on Tuesday nights with our friend Andre Lascoutx from Nashville playing his guitar and singing for us. These sails sell out quick so be sure to book yours in advance. Also, if you haven’t sailed on one of our full moon sails be sure to book one on either Surprise or Anjacaa to see the sunset over the Camden Hills and the moonrise over Penobscot Bay. We look forward to having you aboard starting May 1st!
