Dear Friend of CHARIAD: I intended to attached these pictures to the last email. John Bishop begins the season. CHARIAD in the yard in Weymouth. This is giving me an excuse to include two images I took last Sunday at the Mt. Auburn Cemetery. Thinking about the end of the sailing season and fall colors. Mary Hennessey is now coming to [...]

Fall 2013 Sailing


Dear Friend of CHARIAD: Columbus Day Social Sail to Gloucester A fun and interesting collection of CHARIAD Friends did go sailing yesterday – Columbus Day. Sunny all day. Light winds from the SE at mid-day picking up to a brisk wind in the afternoon. Truly beautiful fall sailing.

Chariad Launch – July 2013


Dear Friend of CHARIAD: At long last, CHARIAD is being launched today. Frustrating story about the long delay – later. A huge effort was put in by a lot of crew members this past two weeks – in the heat – to get her ready for launch. Because we had access to a private shed while the Dion’s yard in Salem was going slow with their work, we did [...]

Chariad Swims in Championship Regatta & Boston Globe Article

My Thanks to You


Dear Friend of CHARIAD: Many of you were kind enough to send me a Happy Birthday note. So many that I am somewhat embarrassed. I have tried to respond to each of you, but I am not sure I was successful with the notes on Facebook. If you sent me a note on Facebook and did not get a response from me, that is because I don’t seem to know [...]
