POINTS EAST FUNDY FLOTILLA 2011 I was at Betty and John Mansfield for a Christmas social and I could not help but remember the summer visit of the 2011 Fundy Flotilla. What a great job our members did in hosting this group and what a great setting to host them. Thank you again John and Betty for your hospitality and making your home available. As you recall, we first took them to the Huntsman Discovery Aquarium. This was an instant success as the flotillians explored the touch tanks, the seal enclosure and the beautiful view of Brandy Cove. As SAYC members we enjoyed meeting the flotillians and sharing a great reception with perfect weather at Stoneridge. This was our second opportunity for SAYC to host the flotilla and I am looking forward to many more. Bernie Wideman, co-founder of Points East magazine (www.pointseast.com) and its current marketing director tells us that our receptions have become legendary with flotilla folks. SAYC members can be proud for their part in promoting boating in Passamaquoddy Bay and for exposing Saint Andrews and what it has to offer for our Downeast boating community.

It’s a Small World This story is one that gives credence to the saying, it's a small world. Our member Brian Glebe phones me just before Christmas asking about the Sullivan's. As you know Ray & Heather aboard their 39 ft Corbin, Ne'r Do Well left Passamaquoddy Bay in September for their winter destination of Panama. Brian received an email from his sister, Janice Fleischmann, who winters at Indian River Florida aboard their 36 ft boat, relating that they moored along side the Sullivan's from Saint Andrews, and would Brian know them. So we know that Ray & Heather have made it to Florida. Brian tells me that Janice is now in the Bahamas but no further update on the Sullivan's. It's a small world!
