New Year’s Day Levee

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012
Come one, come all to the 34th Anniversary of the Portland Yacht New Year’s Day Levee.

In addition to the traditional Artillery Punch and Bloody Marys concocted by Phil Sargent, you will also be able to raise a mimosa or glass of champagne.

This year’s event will feature crafts, snacks, and child care in the Captain’s Room, outdoor activities (weather depending) for young and old, as well as a few other surprises!

Please bring an appetizer to share with the crowd and gear if you plan to be outdoors (skates, snowshoes, & warm clothes.)

Outdoor Events:
12:00-2:00 Skating on the pond
Snow Shoe Obstacle Course 1
Other games

2:00-4:00 Pond Hockey
Snow Shoe Obstacle Course 2
Other games

If there is a lack of snow for skating and snowshoes we will have some frosty lawn games to add to the merriment in the great room.

Please email Molly White if you plan to come:

Look forward to seeing you on the 1st!

Fleet 43 Skis Rangely

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Ok Fleet 43, Jeffa has come through with some epic ski plans for March 8th-10th! See details below and don’t miss out on this great weekend!

The Country Club Inn, which has 10 rooms has offered us their off season rate of $125 a night with breakfast included. They have currently blocked all rooms for us until the 5th of January!

Each room has a private bath, views, and the inn is located 9 miles from Saddleback. The inn also has a pub with pool table and fire place and hosts a two for one dinner night on Friday night for $32.

Jeffa says that the owner is fine with adding cots to rooms as needed to help with budget. He has also arranged lift tickets for $29 a day at Saddleback.

So what do you need to do to be a part of the fun?

1) Share this information with your skipper/crew

2) Contact Margery Jamison at to reserve your room(s) by January 5th.

3) Contact Jeffa at sailus850@hotmail to purchase tickets.

This is a great opportunity! Hope to see a lot of people off the water and on the slopes!
