A Big Thank You and a Few Other Things

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009
  • Thank You-First of a huge “Thank You” goes out to all of the fleet members and volunteers that made this year’s Downeast Regatta possible.  It was a fantastic event and we received tons of positive feedback.  There are already 10 boats registered for next year’s 25th Annual Downeast, which speaks volumes to the level of quality of our event.  Nice work everyone!
  • Haul Out-I am in the process of scheduling the Fleet Haul Out. I am contemplating scheduling it after the end of the PYC Fall Series so that the boats that are not traveling can compete.  Feed back from boat owners on this haul out plan before the end of this week would be appreciated.
  • PYC Fall Series-The PYC Fall Series is held on the next four Saturdays and races are followed by chili, chowder, and drinks at the Portland Yacht Club.  Remember at the age of 80, George Tonini won the Lightship Race on his J24, Trick or Treat. Let’s get some fleet boats out there!  For more information visit the website.
  • Handy Boat Regatta-There is also the Handy Boat Regatta, which is this coming Sunday.  This is a fun main and jib race for family and friends, a Second Chance favorite.
  • Leafer’s  Last Leg-The Leafer’s Last Leg hosted by Sail Maine on October 17th.  For more information about this event see the website.
  • Storage-Lastly, Rich Carlson is offering winter storage in an un-heated Westbrook location for boats on trailers at $20/ft of boat length.  The storage runs from November to May.   You can not work on the boats while in storage.  Vehicles, RVs, etc are also welcome.  Contact Rich Carlson at 207-831-2392 if you are interested.

The hull is white and has the teak toe rails and the 2 tone deck, grey.  If there is any interest in the boat please reply to this email or contact me at 508-540-9714

Hey Howard,Hope your summer is off to a good start. Our first regatta is next weekend, 6/9-10. it’s the district 3 championships so I guess I’ll  get a good feel for where I am then. I am also going to the Newport regatta in July. Will I see you there?

Anyway, I’ve put Volcano up for sale. Looking at a bigger racer/cruiser so I can include my family in my weekend plans for a change (they don’t like the J24). I posted the boat on It is in pretty good shape. Do you remember it at COC last year? Over the winter I added new dyform shrouds and 1×19 stays. I also bought a new set of sails which I won’t use before Newport. I am asking $14,000 including the sails and am willing to deliver her to Portland.

Just thought I’d mention it if you happen to know of anyone who might want to get into the sport or upgrade their J24 without the hassles of actually doing it. To get an older boat into the shape Volcano is in would cost a lot.

If you hear of anyone who is interested, my cell is 203-856-4452.

Thanks. Hope to see you soon!
