Haul Out Reminder

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Don’t forget that the first Fleet 43 and Etchelles haul out will begin at 8:00 am Saturday September 25th at Handy Boat.

Please be sure to bring your $50 haul out fee.

Also, we seem to be missing one of the two gin-poles (the one that was a mast.)  If you know where it is please return it so that folks can get their masts down for haul out.

Haul Out Clarification

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

I understand that some fleet boats want to come out before October 23rd. So I have arranged an earlier fleet haul out with Handy Boat on Saturday September 25th starting at 8:00 am.

To be clear, the only boats that will be hauling out on the Sunday after the Downeast are the visiting competitors and fleet 43 boats that are registered for Nationals.  Boats traveling to Lake George can haul out on the 25th of September.

I have spoken to Jay Hallett about this and hauling the thirteen boats on Sunday is his max.

Below is the current haul out schedule:

Sunday September 12th-Boats registered for Nationals can haul out after the boats from away
Saturday September 25th (8:00 am)-Any Fleet 43 boat or Etchelles can be hauled out
Saturday October 23rd (8:00 am)-Any Fleet 43 boat or Etchelles can be hauled out

Important Haul Out Information

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

The J24 and Etchelles Haul Out is on the calendar for Saturday, October 23rd starting 8:00 am at Handy Boat Service.

The reason for the later haul out is to allow for both fleets to participate in the PYC Fall Series and the Sail Maine Leafer’s Last Leg.  Besides…the breeze is just starting to pick up!

Boats that plan to travel to Nationals or Lake George can haul out at the Downeast Regatta after the away boats are out.  Fleet 43 member haul out is not included in the Downeast registration, so fleet 43 boats are expected to pay the $50 haul out fee if they haul out on either September 12th or October 23rd.

If you plan to haul your boat at the Downeast Regatta, please contact the fleet captain, Molly White at, so that a list can be given to Handy Boat Service.

Please remember that visiting boats take priority at haul out.

Thanks for a great season and we hope to see some of you out there for fall sailing!
