The Rackets are made up of almost a dozen islands, most of which are in the public trust or are crown land. The local conservation group, MICA (Mahone Bay Island Conversation Association), has been behind many of the island purchases. The result is that these islands are free from human habitation and will continue to be. We’ll set up camp on the island that best suits our group. Regardless of where we camp we’ll be on the outskirts of our world.
