  1. Hodgdon Yachts and Boothbay Region Boatyard set to merge
  2. You weren't there Kitty, and neither was the Yachtsman.... selected by the past Yachtsmen from among numerous nominees, this year's winner apparently was independently nominated by several different people, and lauded for introducing so many newbies to the sport of sailing.
  3. My son was crewing on Varuna for that race (I think he is the one in dark blue at the forward end of the cockpit). I was away helping to deliver a boat.... Earlier in the week, though, I got to crew on the 115' Tenacious as she was tuning up for the Shipyard Cup...
  4. Yes, while Ghost was duking it out on the Sheepscot, Apparition was flying around Nantucket Shoals.... doo-doo-doo-doo oouuaaawweee
  5. Apparition was first to finish the Lobster Run, arriving to much fan-fare at the Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club earlier this evening.
  6. This way my bottom stays clean for the big races .... We'll be racing at Boothbay this weekend -- a bit short on crew though, so if you know of anyone who is looking for a ride send them to Harborfields! (FWIW, we may also be able to come up with a mooring or two if anyone needs one for the Boothbay/Southport week) Would like to do the GOMST, but have signed up for the Lobster Run (anyone else from Maine doing this race? Anyone else at all doing this race? Wish the organizers would get their act together and publish the list of entrants!)
  7. Greyhawk goes in the water today or tomorrow....
  8. I like the "mass start" aspect of the AIR. It was a relatively small fleet the one year I did it, but start area was shrouded in fog and you had no way to judge your distance to the line or where any of the other boats were!
  9. Hey Tittravate, You're still a newbie around here... There's a hazing ritual for SA newbies, don't you know? ;-)
  10. Great banquet, too bad it was so short and we weren't able to catch up with everyone that we might have wanted to catch up with. Any one else here thinking about doing the Lobster Run next year?
  11. And what is with the -69 rater in DH class?!?
  12. Wendy and I were at PYC Saturday night to talk about the Bermuda 1-2 with some prospective future participants. The J24 sailors seemed to be having a good time! I'm in for the Rocks Race, see you all Friday evening!
  13. On Saturday, several cruising class boats were scored DNF by the RC because they apparently sailed past the wrong side of the committee boat at the finish. I guess some of them were pretty upset about it -- indeed, they had sailed very good races. Unfortunately there was a problem with the sailing instructions -- the finish had been described in two different places, but the corrected version distributed Saturday morning had only changed one of those descriptions. So I guess one (or more) of the affected boats filed for redress on Sunday based on this ambiguity in the SI's. To complicate
  14. Oh Boy, it isn't over yet -- re-opening the redress hearing?
