Two Sailing Possibilities…..
Paul Tropea sent in this heads-up:
Still up in Mainiac country,4 days so far of a HYUGE ice sheet 14″ thick, some a little bumpy, but, who’s complaining, plenty of wind, lots of company on the ice, plenty of places to stay, loges, cabins, motel. Temperatures LOWWW, warm fireplaces and hot food at the launch site, “The Birches” loge. Hope to get a few hours in tomorrow before the rain. Very much worth the drive.
There’s talk of an event at Damariscotta this coming weekend. Check the Chickawaukie Ice Boat Club site- winds predicted at 16mph, temps at 11 to 24 degrees. There’s lodging at the launch site, which also has a friendly clubhouse RIGHT AT THE SITE. Lodging is also available at The Blueberry Fields Bed and Breakfast, about 15 minutes drive.
Come up for a last hurrah this season.
