In 1998 Robyn Thibodeau and Sandy Jessup opened the Sailing Cow at the Bass River Marina. Each of them wanted to bring to the restaurant a part of their past. Sandy, raised on a dairy farm in New York and Robyn from Caribou, Maine decided to bring the country to the water - thus the Sailing Cow was born. In 2007, we relocated from the Marina to the Beach!!
The Sailing Cow experienced a devastating loss to our family in 2002. Our head chef, Jerome Munroe, passed away unexpectedly. He was instrumental in the success of our business. Our site is dedicated to his honor.
