During the Mariel Boatlift in 1980, a young girl named Mirta Ojito escaped from Cuba on the boat of a New Orleans skipper, Capt. Mike Howell.

The Down East Loop - Day 11

BoothBay Harbor to Boston took us three half-day passages thanks to clear skies, calm seas and the Cutwater’s comfortable low cruising speed of 12 to 15 knots. Before leaving Boothbay, Joanne and I ate breakfast with Allan Miller and Pam Burke. I knew Burke from Newburyport where she owned a beautiful wood schooner, named Heart’s Desire.
