The CIBC will hold it’s annual spring meeting on Sunday, April 9 at the Damariscotta Lake Farm Inn. Meeting to begin at 11:00, followed by a fine pot luck lunch. Last year’s food was among the best ever; let’s maintain the tradition!
Anita asks that we park on the north side of the building to keep the restaurant parking on the other side clear for business.

Before talking about today I should review the weekend. We had about a dozen different DNs out, including some sailors not seen for a while. On Friday, three of us sailed in strong winds – MS1s were the sail of choice. Saturday we sailed in light air, and only managed one race, which was generally regarded as a bit fluky. Fluky or not, Terry sailed smart and went from fourth to a win on the last leg. Alex Watters also posted a helmet cam sequence of sailing Terry’s boat to Facebook, copied here:
Today we had nine boats out, and some of us raced for various lengths of time. We retired to Howard’s cottage for a lasagna lunch, courtesy of Terry. The keenest returned to the race course and sailed until the first snow flurries, just after 4 PM. It was a day of in between winds – most of us sailed with ABSSs, although the heavier guys used FO1s. Bob had an almost perfect record, but both Bob and I had to retire from races when we got too close and personal to the leeward mark! I was stupid fast downwind, but just plain stupid upwind. Bob was just fast all around. A couple of photos, with thanks, by Dave Collins.
All in all, I had three days of good sailing: sorry if you missed it!
If we get enough rain after this snowfall, and a few cold nights, we might just be doing this again next weekend. There is still lots of ice on Sherbrooke.
(I also note a Facebook post that the PEI guys sailed this weekend, absent Doug of course.)
