Hola Mainers,

 

My nephew is spending 5 weeks this summer near Brunswick.... Are there any local clubs with a good Jr. Program?

 

Thanks...

 

The two closest:

Orr's-Bailey Yacht Club (www.obyc.org) Just down the Harpswell peninsula

Harraseeket Yacht Club (www.hyc.cc) Freeport, 11 miles south of Brunswick on I-295

 

Portland YC has a good program, but you've got to drive like a madman to get there in 15 minutes from Brunswick. Try 30-35 minutes. I suspect they're also a tad pricier than OBYC and HYC.

 

Entropy,

 

 

HYC is probably the best bet. What level instruction are you looking for? The two youngest classes (Recruits and Mates) are pretty much filled, however skippers (adv. 420) and 420 race have room.

 

hyc.cc or PM me for program directors email

 

 

Thanks for the great info.... this place can be pretty amazing at times!

A great day this past Saturday at the Centerboard Regatta. We had a fleet of 22 boats racing this year. We saw a sunny day with winds around 5-10 knots most of the time on the race course with two races being held for each class. Winners were Keemah (Racing A), Pit Party (Racing B) and Rita P (Cruising). Results are posted on the website.

 

After the race a good time was had by all at the party at Centerboard. The sun was out and the weather was great to enjoy For Pete's Sake, back for another year of entertainment. Lots of folks caught up on their fellow sailors winter activities and talked about the summer season ahead of us.

 

Many thanks to all of those who participated, and especially to Port Rigging and Gritty's, their involvement is greatly appreciated.

 

We are looking forward to next years event. Also - Wednesday night racing open to anyone all summer and fall. First gun at 6pm near Fort Gorges. See you this weekend at the Pilot Race.

Our compliments to the CYC RC and other volunteers for the great job they did with everything, and to the racers for all the good competition. Good food, good beer, good fun. I can't imagine a better day weatherwise -- the sun was out and the breeze came up just in time for the start. And only one close encounter with a large boat!

Mainers-

 

I'm organizing the Smuttynose Island Regatta this season - August 15 & 16 in Portsmouth. After many years of being scheduled on top of Monhegan, it is offset by a week this year. If we get a lot of GMORA boats, we'll make a point of shifting it a week in the future.

 

The NOR should be done today and distributed tomorrow.

 

We'll have as many races as possible (8 last year) over the two days. Classes are J-105 (separate course), Racing, Cruising, and J-24 (if there are at least 5 boats). Big party Saturday night on New Castle island.

 

More info will be posted at http://www.sailpsa.org in the next few days.

 

Hope to see a bunch of you there. If you do plan to come, please let me know so we can start finding guest moorings. It's really crowded down here.

 

Eric

I heard the USCG hailing BDP yesterday on the VHF...are all the kitties ok?

 

 

It all turned out well...but it was a clown show at times-

 

We were steaming in at the end of the race when we sucked up some air which stopped the D-sail. No Problem- we would just sail to the mooring. Well at that time it started to blow 25-30 true. We "arrived" at the mooring at 9.5 kts under main. We picked up the pick-up bouy and dropped the main 5/8ths of the way. We lost the mooring line and started to sail backwards through the mooring field at 5 kts. we got out of there ok but not before we shreeded a staysail- Good times-

 

All kittens and fingers accounted for...

Thanks for getting this back on the front page, Kitty.

 

A little bird has told me that sign-ups for Camden-Castine are a wee bit scarce at this point.

 

Here's the NOR and registration form. Tell your skipper to sign up. Clicky

Another great Maine yachtsman has passed. Long time friend and Revolution crew member passed away on Tuesday.

Barrie Hackett has been a crew member on various Revolutions dating back to the 70's. I have learned much about

sailing from this man and he shall be missed.

 

"Heart attack killed man in Little Sebago

 

Submitted By David Hench,

Staff Writer

on Wednesday, Jul. 8 at 2:00 pm

 

Authorities say a man whose body was found in Little Sebago Lake in Gray

Tuesday afternoon died of natural causes.

 

 

Berrie Hackett, 78, was found floating face down in about three to four feet

of water. A Cumberland County Sheriff¹s deputy brought him to shore and

summoned rescue workers who were unable to resuscitate him.

 

 

The State Medical Examiner performed an autopsy and determined that Hackett

died of a heart attack.

 

 

A long-time companion told police that Hackett, who lives near where his

body was found, had planned to row a small aluminum boat to a nearby island

to check on recent damage to property there. When he failed to return, the

companion went to check on him and found the body, the sheriff¹s office

said."

 

"Visitation is scheduled for this Saturday at Wilson Funeral Home, Gray Maine between 1-3 PM."

With condolences to FW, what an absolutely fucking great day that was!

 

Yup, a wet and wild day to be sure. Funniest (?) moment of the day was when the water filled up the port coaming box to the point that all of its contents -- including the winch handle and four propane canisters -- were floating. Upon tacking, that same port coaming box turned into a biday-like device for the unlucky person sitting directly in front of the drain hole. Which just goes to show you, it's never too late to learn about the various features on your boat. :)

So... will Camden/Castine be worth doing this year? I've considered entering, but last years bad press and iffy '09 NOR isn't getting me excited. Anyone actually going?

 

I can tell you that the Camden YC has worked very hard to make it an excellent sailing and social success, this year.

Anyone have any preferences for jello shot flavors? I'm makin' 'em tonight, like starting in a few hours, so speak now or forever hold your peace. No exotic liquors please -- let's keep it to rum or vodka (or maybe a little peach schnapps - the sex on the beach flavor sounds intriguing).

The Mount Gay on Revolution should be a fine complement to the offerings on board Rita P. The jello shots are gelled, and the Pain Killer mix is on ice.

Correction - The Pain Killer mix IS ice. This weekends experiment will be frozen Pain Killers.

 

This is a test, this is purely science, any participants might be required to test and compare multiple variations.

Weeelllll, actually kind of not...

While I was away at work yesterday she was able to find my half bottle of Mt. Gay Rum...

Having the summer from teaching I guess she decided there would be no harm done consuming the remaining rum.

 

(Until today where we find her to be hung over again,,,)

Maybe it's time to take up fishing.

 

 

rum and fishing are incompatable.. so i say bad idea

 

You're right, that's a total deal-breaker.

 

Maybe I'll take up power boating. But I just can't imagine smoking cigarettes.

The Cone did the Downeast Challenge and finished 1, corrected 3. Haven't had a chance to see it 'cause the f-ing lobster fest has taken over the water front. At last report the Cone was at the public landing in Rocktown.

Beausoleil raced in the Downeast Challenge and came in second. The Cone is an interesting boat with it's 11 foot retractable pole. It took off fast at the start and for quite a few hours when the wind was 10 to 15 on the aft quarter. Didn't like the light winds later in the night or the adverse current in Two Bush channel. Beausoleil went though Mussel Ridge with spin and more speed from a favorably current then from the wind.

So the Cone was third, Beausoleil second, who came in first? Spill it! :) I don't see results on line, though I do see the scratch sheet showing 12 participants, which is a lot more than last year, correct?

Hey!

 

Perhaps we can learn something from the recent Farr 30 Championships on the great lakes:

 

"Much has been said on many threads recently about how a good regatta should be run. Let me tell you about this one. Picture a small town on the water with no hotels/motels, or condos. What do you do? Pack your tent and set up camp in many of the village parks because the city encourages it. They even cater to it by having plenty of clean porta potties because you are pissing so much b/c of the ridiculous amount of cheap booze. They had a semi trailer with numerous beer selections and Mt Gay bar that never stopped serving $3 drinks. All of this was organized and managed by a crew of 400+ volunteers and all for a modest entry fee of $140.00 for big boats that included mast stepping, splashing, and hauling. Top that off by encouraging the non-sailing public to come down and join the party and it was quite a scene. Needless to say, we will be back next year.

 

This may be exactly what Maine Yachting needs...

This will be of more interest to the cruisers, but we just left Frenchboro and the Offshore Store, a couple hundred yards up the road from Lunts, boiled lobstahs and delivered them to the boat with butter for $4 a pound. Their lobster roll is the fattest I've ever seen. She's basically selling her husband's catch direct. Life is good.

Hey!

 

Perhaps we can learn something from the recent Farr 30 Championships on the great lakes:

 

"Much has been said on many threads recently about how a good regatta should be run. Let me tell you about this one. Picture a small town on the water with no hotels/motels, or condos. What do you do? Pack your tent and set up camp in many of the village parks because the city encourages it. They even cater to it by having plenty of clean porta potties because you are pissing so much b/c of the ridiculous amount of cheap booze. They had a semi trailer with numerous beer selections and Mt Gay bar that never stopped serving $3 drinks. All of this was organized and managed by a crew of 400+ volunteers and all for a modest entry fee of $140.00 for big boats that included mast stepping, splashing, and hauling. Top that off by encouraging the non-sailing public to come down and join the party and it was quite a scene. Needless to say, we will be back next year.

 

This may be exactly what Maine Yachting needs...

 

If we want to encourage the non-sailing community to come to regatta parties all we need to do is drop the frou-frou gin and craft ale sponsors and replace them with Allen's and Bud. Then just throw open the gates...

Word! Only thing that I would change to your words of wisdom is to give sailors the choice between PBR or Bud! Lets keep local yacht racing events as affordable as possible.

For those of you who did not participate in this weekends races, you should know that the Camden/Castine race has been infused with a few pints of Life Blood. Both clubs did a fabulous job, and were welcoming at both ends. Castine hosted a barbeque at their club, which was both good and a beautiful place to just be. Race commitee did a great job in every sense of the word, and even was able to produce 2 days of nice wind. It was fun to race against other boats that we normally don't get to race against. It was very apparent that both clubs wanted us there. So to them, a hearty thank you, and those of you who didn't/couldn't go, I suggest next year you rethink it. k

Thanks CL... I will try and remember to jot that down in the cruising guide for future reference! Love Frenchboro. Hopefully you got to hike to the other side of the island and see the big boulder beaches.

Glad to hear it went well. I hope you had good wind too. We were in cruise mode this weekend and had some really nice sailing, albeit with a little visibility impairment on Sunday! :)

Camden/Castine was a lot of fun this year. Randy Whitney of the Camden Yacht Club did an outstanding job of putting together a really nice event. Saturday's dinner and party at the Castine Yacht Club was very nice and well attended. The scoring was done and avalable after each race.

 

It was fun to mix it up with some different boats for a change...

 

Many thanks from the fleet go to Randy and his homeys for the great time...

 

Kitty out...
