Mount Desert Islander: After a few foggy days, brilliant sun greeted the crew gathered at high tide at Sand Beach on Little Cranberry Island Saturday morning [July 30] for Islesford Boatworks’ second annual “Row-a-thon” fundraiser.

The flotilla of about a dozen kayaks and rowboats circumnavigated Little Cranberry, with a rest and water stop partway at Bunker’s Cove. A couple of powerboats escorted the group for safety. Rowers raised more than $6,000 for the nonprofit, board member Peyton Eggleston said.
