Tricky Tide Means Island Health Director Travels to Matinicus Flu Clinic by Skiff

Island Health Director Sharon Daley, RN travels by skiff to Matinicus flu clinic.

BAR HARBOR, Me — October 17, The Sunbeam V left Northeast Harbor for a three-day Island Health tour. Timing is critical when the Sunbeam V motors in to Matinicus harbor. Low tide will strand the boat for about 12-hours. On trips when the Sunbeam V cannot spend that much time at Matinicus, Sharon has to rely on the Sunbeam V skiff to travel to the island.

In this photo, taken from the Sunbeam V, the boat’s Engineer, Storey King, is taking Sharon to a scheduled flu clinic at Matinicus.

The Island Health program is part of the Mission’s focus for 2017’s #GivingTuesday on Nov. 28th. Learn more:
