Dear Friend of CHARIAD:

If you are in the Boston area this coming Sunday, join other Friends of CHARIAD for a wonderful summer Social Sail. No spinnaker work!

Social Sail Details

On Dock Time

11:00 AM


Boston Yacht Club, One Front Street, Marblehead


On street is available near the BYC. Allow time to find the parking and get to the club.

Food & Drinks

If you want to eat it or drink it, bring it. Plus some to share. Think camping.


Warm summer day, but always cooler on the water. Windbreaker is good addition.


VERY IMPORTANT  If you want to be on board, you have to be at the BYC at 11:00 AM. The launch service will only take us out as a group. If you come later, you will not be able to come out to the boat.


Let me know if you can come. We have room for a limited number of folks on the boat and I need to keep track of who is planning to be there.

Halifax Race Update

Elisabeth Strecker sent me a note from Halifax reporting that she sailed on Gigi. Elizabeth is a former CHARIAD crew member and a wonderful friend of the crew and boat. Elizabeth sailed around the world on her boat some years ago. Gigi may have won its class.

Check out the boats this morning. Go to There is a slider at the bottom of the screen allowing you to replay the track of the boats over the last 12 hours or so. They were drifting around last night. Saraband is still on the course. There is a deadline for officially finishing the race. May be mid day today. Not sure.

Hope to see you Sunday. To our Friends in far away places, my best wishes. Come this way when you can.
