PORT WING OVERNIGHT: This is a great family trip and a unique vacation with both great sailing and onshore exploring. This trip is for couples or families who might be beginners to living aboard but interested in a solid overnight with lots of sailing. Here on the north shore, we refer to this trip as "going to the tropics." The warm waters and sandy beaches of the south shore are a mere 4-hour sail away. The great thing about Port Wing is the variety of things to do once you get there. There are rivers and estuaries to explore by kayak and dinghy. There's an awesome beach to enjoy where you can brave the waters with a swim. The village of Port Wing is a leisurely walk away. Or, you can just sit back and relax in the cockpit and enjoy a good book. Returning the next day offers more time on the water and great sailing.
This trip can be extended to two nights, which opens up the possibility of spending a night at Bark Bay, a pristine anchorage just north of Port Wing. We've seen black bears from the boat, eaten blueberries, and swum to shore from Bark Bay.
