    Neat to hear that Steve Purdy on Trader is still at it! Same Trader, different Steve. The next generation has stepped up.

    That sounds like a great series. CYC would definitely get behind that style of racing.

    During the NE Harbor race we were discussing the benefits of moving the Monhegan to a calendar slot that had a historical trend of better wind. It was either that or coming up with a new low-key distance race for the early fall.

    NE Harbor race did run and while the wind was a bit light, it was still a good time. Low-key organization, but looking at the fleet size, that's just fine. My thoughts are that this time of year is a good one for distance racing in the Gulf of Maine seeing as the wind should be more reliable than in early August. I really hope the race will run in 2009. Results are here eventually.

    No offense to the fine folks at PYC, but as a CYC member I'd much prefer to have my local fleet be GMORA rather than another area club. For that reason alone, they do provide value.

    Thanks for the info. The word I got from Sailmaine is that the series starts on Oct. 28 and runs until the last Sunday in Dec. Team slots may still be available.

    So, is there any organized (read: for any value of organized) frostbiting in Casco Bay? I know there used to be a group at PYS on the Ynglings.

    Saw the boat out last Sunday. Looks nice and seems to move along well. As noted, hope it comes with a wetsuit and a good knife to cut away the lobster pots.

    How did the H33 like the breeze? Saw you it heading down to the tugboat muster today and thought it looked pretty nice. However, some of the wavelength pics show some pretty healthy scallops in the jib.
