Dear Friend of CHARIAD:
If you will in the Boston area Sunday, join other Friends of CHARIAD for a wonderful summer Social Sail. No spinnaker work!
Social Sail Details
Beringer Race – Overnight Marblehead to Provincetown
Last Friday night, the CHARIAD team raced the boat from Marblehead to a mark off Hull and then SW to the SW tip of Cape Cod and then to Provincetown. We started about 7:30 PM and finished at 2:30 AM. Fast run on a beautiful summer night mostly in SW winds of 15 knots.
We won this race last year in lighter winds that were shifting and gave us an opportunity to play the winds rather than be in a reaching speed race. We sailed the boat hard and I am happy with how we performed as a team.
Here are pics from the race. These are Allison Conboy’s images.
This is our class starting.
Sunrise on the mooring in P’town.
The Pilgrims first landing in the New World was in P’town. They did not like the bars staying open all night, so they went to Plymouth where they stepped on Plymouth Rock 1620. This is the monument to the Pilgrims first landing copying the design of the tower on the square in Siena, Italy.
We sailed back to Marblehead Sunday. Here is the lighthouse on the sand spit leaving the harbor.
We went across Stellwagen Bank looking for whales, but did not see any this time.
Hope to see you Sunday. To our Friends in far away places, my best wishes. Come this way when you can.
