  1. Check out the OSTAR tracking and follow Jeroboam! http://ostar.rwyc.org/?page_id=3222
  2. Best race of the season! Great conditions and a solid fleet of boats. Thank you to RYC for hosting all of us this weekend!
  3. Have the results been posted? We missed the post race fun for a family event. I haven't seen anything on the website of Facebook yet. The Mainsail video is a nice touch.
  4. Another great MS regatta - thankfully the wind filled in nicely. It was a beautiful weekend and Sunday's events drew a huge crowd on the water! It was a lot of fun to watch.
  5. Yep, Racing looks like this: Nirvana -72 Apres Ski 72 Beausoleil 75 County Girl 78 Keemah 90 But you should get a dance partner and come race double handed against Buzz. Right now only two DH boats, but 4 single handers. That's where we are at...
  6. Cruising Southern Cross Trader Imagine DH Buzz Tittravate SH Resolute Panacea Racing Nirvana Apres Ski County Girl Keemah Come join us...I'll bring candy
  7. Looking for more boats for Northeast Harbor Race... are you all going to PHRFNE's? August 24-25 - 100+ miles, Racing, Cruising, Single and Double Handed sign up at www.gmora.org - or PM me with questions. 4 boats racing, 4 boats short handed at the moment, looking to fill out the classes.
  8. Good job out there, looked like it was a slow one, always a tough way to sail.
  9. We missed the CYC race this year, but made it to Rockland for the Blues today! That was pretty neat, great venue. You RYC guys had front row seats (understanding it is probably a big PITA for you) How did it go? Was there wind?
  10. I'd have to agree that the pursuit format on this race was less than ideal. With a course that provides opportunity for a variety of angles and some choices (Harraseeket) - I think it can work. Of course having consistent wind conditions would make it "fair" and we know how often that happens (not Harraseeket). I would have been curious to see what the results would have been like if it was done in a standard format. Is there a push to do pursuit format from some of the folks in Rockland? I have to say I love doing this race - the locations are incredible and the people are fun!
  11. remember what happens in Castine...... stays in Castine... and NOTHING ever happens in Castine... wait a second, didn't I meet my wife there???? See you in Rockland
  12. You might also get some co promotion out of talking to the folks who run the ME Rocks Race. They are the weekend after correct? Different style of racing of course, but if you have your boat up in the area anyway for one, do them both? Just a thought, I hope to get up to do the AIR, but I don't think I will have a boat this year.
  13. Hanging down here and doing the MS partyfest on Saturday...
  14. I don't think anyone can top the cruising class for party honors. I had a warm bath to head home to - I don't think I have been that cold racing in a long time - I needed a few more layers. Here is hoping that this weekend is better...
  15. If I remember correctly - The Cone was beat by Beausoleil as well last time it was done? There must have been wind!
  16. I hope Mr & Mrs Blowhard enjoyed their winter down south. We are looking forward to a great season of sailing in Maine this summer. There will be a lot of mucking about in boats all over Maine. Things start up in the Portland area around the last week of May first of June. We hope to see you around.
  17. Sounds like it was light? Kudos to all of you guys for getting out there and sailing solo or duo!
  18. Good to hear! We look forward to seeing you upon your return. Have fun in the sun!
  19. Thanks Chaise - sounds like a great day of sailing. Glad everyone avoided the shore - tends to put a damper on the day. The most wind we saw in Casco Bay was 13-15 - what did you guys get up there?
  20. Please do tell more about the AIR. I missed it playing with Fleet 43 in Falmouth this weekend. Kitty - how was the wedding?
  21. 2 1/2 cents Foreside Tavern on route 1 - nearish to PYC/HBS - good food & drink, usually a tolerable crowd. As Kitty says we don't have many sailor bars around. There is Oasis on Wharf street in the old port - owned by a J24 sailor - but not at all acoustic... There is 3 Dollar Deweys - always quiet there I'm afraid (used to be "the" bar - now it is a Breakfast Club reunion...) Lots of people like Bull Feeney's on Fore Street... good hot toddy's. However there will be plenty of food and drink at the festivities of the regatta - though the music won't be acoustic I don't think... Lo
  22. This year's the Centerboard Yacht Club Northeast Harbor Race was a great success. We had 13 boats in 3 divisions racing 100 miles from Portland to Mount Desert Island. The fleet took off on Friday in a steady westerly breeze that quickly swung around to the southwest sea breeze. For a little while you could see boats with spinnakers on the same course as boats close-hauled. Sunset saw Sequin fading behind and Monhegan abeam for most of the fleet. The wind started back around to the West and eventually Northwest. Soon the moon rose, nearly full, and lit up the sea as the fleet neared and p
  23. howdy folks, just wanted to put a plug in for Northeast Harbor Race - Friday 1pm start. 100 miles short course - long course is 112 this year I think. Portland Harbor to Northeast Harbor. Winds look decent right now, moon will be just past full, should be a great sail! Right now we have a fleet of 3 cruisers, 4 double-handed and 4 racing - we would like to see this flesh out a bit more. go to the GMORA website to register, or PM me for more details.
  24. I think the more possibilities the better. CYC has been great at working with us on keeping this race going and it is possible the race is seeing a rebirth into a different format. It was great to get a turnout of local boats - a good chunk of which were from Rockland. I'm pretty sure the boats from down south would be happy to visit Camden or Rockland or both, as we all think Penobscot is a pretty cool place to sail - even if the current can drive us batty. If someone (GMORA, CYC-RYC) can get a meeting together with folks from Rockland and from Camden I would imagine there would be some neat
  25. Yep the racing in Penobscot was pretty fun this weekend. Saturday saw horridly light winds at the start (1-2 knots) but it filled in by 12:30 and the rest of the race was in good breeze. Sunday was pretty solid with 10 knots that got up to 13 or so during the afternoon. There seemed to be a lot of good competition and a diverse race field - about 20 boats in 3 classes. CYC did a very nice job hosting and while the destination part of the weekend was gone, it certainly was an enjoyable weekend. I think Camden survived the onslaught. CYC was pretty straight forward with the folks on the doc
