The Marblehead fleet finally got out on the water this past weekend (July 18, 19). We have two very different types of sailing for our 5 identical Gavia 2.4 meters.
On Saturdays, we do clinic style short Windward Leeward courses using a government park as the upwind mark. We got 5 races in for our fleet of 5 boats and had 3 different race winners. Thanks to Doug Trees all of the boats are identical and have fresh sails. As this was the first day on the water minor issues forced us to quit after 5 races, all items were easily fixed.
Sunday brought a single around the buoys race started off of the deck of the Corinthian Yacht Club. We had 3 boats on the line, and even with starting behind the Town Classs, we caught a couple of them.
Thanks to Doug Trees for putting the fleet together, Kathy McAdoo Whitehair for awesome one-woman RC and to our sailors.
New sailors included Rick Saunders and Teddy Hitchcock, joining veterans Maureen McKinnon and Sergey Yedrikov.

We hope you will join us on the water. We have boats and will find a way to get you sailing.
