Letters A word from Constant Waterman Great editorial in May issue (“The Grace of the Day”). Grampy Slocum lived life to the hilt. Hope all is well on your waterfront. I’ve just sent off the text for my second book of journals to my publisher: “MoonWind at Large: Sailing Hither and Yon.” I need to illustrate it this summer; it probably won’t be published until next winter. Meanwhile, I’m repairing boats and writing children’s books. Matthew Goldman (aka Constant Waterman) Stonington, Conn.

“She surely is a handsome little craft of a type not often seen these days,” wrote Capt. Shaw in a later missive. “I made the image of her on Oct. 18, 2009, not far from the Town Pier in Bernard (Bass Harbor). I would love to discuss her origins with the owner.”

Mystery vessel Goslin identified I was reading W.R. Cheney’s essay entitled Goslin in the June issue, and when he began describing the poka, poka, poka sound of a motor vessel approaching his becalmed catboat, I thought to myself, “I bet I know the boat he is talking about.” Sure enough, when I got to the place where he said the vessel’s name was Goslin (I’d missed it in the title), I knew that I’d been right. As I’ve made many trips to Bass Harbor while making images for my planned book on “The Working Watercraft of Downeast Maine,” I was pretty sure I had an image or two of Goslin on file. Sure enough, when I checked I found the one I’m sending you today. Thought you might like to run it next month so as to not leave your readers hanging as to what sort of craft the tow vessel was. Sadly, I don’t know the history of this snug little boat, but she is of a type that used to roam the waters of Maine when I was a youngster, and every time I see her bobbing on her mooring I think back to summers misspent in small craft of my own. A grand little boat, and one day I hope to run into her owner so that I can find out more about who built her and when. Capt. Winston Shaw Bar Harbor, Maine

Richard Rose of Tennessee would love to know more about this little vessel of skipjack or bugeye lines that became the dream ship of a couple of 14-year-olds with time on their hands and adventure on their minds.

Does anyone know this design? While spending a week last fall at Sebasco Resort in Bath, Maine, I came across a copy of Points East in the Bath Maritime Museum. I found it so interesting, I had to subscribe. Your down-home presentation of things nautical and historical really appeal to me. I began sailing in 1943 while living in Appalachicola, Fla. My close friend Howard Wiggens, now deceased, in some manner came up with the answer to our prayers: a beautiful, wonderful sailboat. At least to a couple of 14-year-olds it was. All we had at the time was Herb’s duckboat and my rented rowboat (50 cents a week). We made up a centerboard, a rudder, cut a small cypress from the swamp upriver for a mast, and scrounged a few other parts. My mother made the sails from unbleached muslin. I have no idea where Points East July 2011

we dreamed up the shape of the rigging; we were the only sailboat in that area. The reason I am writing is to find any information that might be available concerning our old sailboat. The only word that was given to us at the time was that the boat was brought to the area aboard a clipper ship in the early 1900s. Several such ships wrecked on the offshore islands that guard Appalachicola Bay. We thought this might be a possibility [for how our boat ended up in the bay]. I am sending two pictures of the boat. Sorry, it had no name. Back in those days we were too young to have a girlfriend to name it after. About the only feature not shown very clearly is the cockpit seat. It was somewhat rounded from side to stern to side. Herb and I spent many hours sailing Appalachicola Bay. It would be something like closing the pages of a book of fond memories if I could learn a little more about this fine little boat. Richard C. Rose 133 Cedar Hill Drive Waverly, Tenn. 37185

Is that a granny I see before me? The old captain with his grapple in the photo on page 22 of the June issue (“The Lowly Grapple Saves a Marriage” by Randy Randall) doesn’t look too seamanlike. His grapple is tied with a granny knot, and there’s no chain, thimbles or splices. His line is full of kinks from having taken the end from on top of the coil instead of the inside one. Looks like a disaster waiting to happen. Jack Hart m.v. Jack of Harts Saco River, Maine Randy responds: Well, you see, Capt. Hart is a seaman. He’s been working on the water most of his long life, and he knows how to do things right. We, on the other hand, are a bunch of wharf rats trying to make a buck running a little marina. We know Jack and his lovely first mate, Margie, very well, and the cruising lobsterboat he built called Jack of Harts. I hope when I reach Jack’s age, I’ll still be able to tell a grapple from a guppy. He was wrong on one point, though. We never tie granny knots. That grapple is tied securely to the line with a couple of half-hitches. Maybe three or four. The more, the better, we find. I know Jack would disapprove, but those simple knots have never yet let us down. When I meet Jack on the river this summer, I’ll give him a blast on the horn and a friendly wave, and if he should drop his mooring chain, I’d gladly help him grapple for it.

Perspectives The anchors of life ome of the most important things in our lives we pay little attention to until it’s too late. Some examples: Our pinkie finger: Notice how important this little appendage becomes after you break it or sprain it. Our spouse/significant other: Watch what happens when he/she suddenly leaves your life (whether on a long trip or forever). You’ll wander around your house, again and again, staring out each window, wondering what to do with the empty expanse of your future. Our job: Often we don’t know how much of who we are is tied up in what we do, until suddenly we’re told we’re not doing it anymore. Our babysitter: The importance here can’t be overstressed. It’s remarkable how little time is spent vet-

I remember my cousin firing her babysitter when she returned to find her getting ready to show the two kids how to watch an eclipse through binoculars. Our anchor: Our anchor? That’s right, the point of this column. How many boats have you seen with a tiny afterthought of a fluked metal object perched demurely on the bow, masquerading as a weak imitation of an anchor. Or, even worse, the anchor is stowed down deep in a lazarette (somewhere near China), under swim ladder, life jackets, fenders, etc. At that point, even if it’s attached to an anchor rode, this will be in a moldy lump comprised of more knots than Medusa’s spiraling hair.

Many years ago, while a friend and I were bringing Chang Ho, my Cape Dory 25, back from Maine, we heard a mayday call over the VHF. We were off Cape Small. A woman was frantically calling the Coast Guard as the boat she was on drifted toward the rocks. There was no wind for their sails, and their motor wouldn’t start. The strong incoming tide had an evil grip on them, and was pulling them into disaster. “Have you deployed your anchor?” the Coast Guard asked. “Yes, but it won’t bite, and if we let out more scope we’ll be on the rocks for sure,” came the reply. And then (and I’ll never forget this phrase), the woman said through the radio: “Gotta go…’bye!” I later found out they hopped into their dinghy just before their sloop went on the ledge.

“A Herreshoff anchor would have saved that boat,” I said to my friend on Chang Ho as we entered Casco Bay. “Yeah, but who carries one of

those giant storm anchors anymore,” he said. “Only time you see those traditional anchors is on cufflinks and designer sailor napkins.” I pointed to the oversized 38-pound storm anchor on Chang Ho’s cabin top. “We’ll,” he continued, “then there’s a few crusty guys like you.” The “storm” anchor (called fisherman, Herreshoff or yachtsman), unlike all others, relies on its weight and unique design to set immediately with almost no scope. It consists of a central shank with a ring or shackle for attaching the rode. At one end of the shank there are two arms, carrying the flukes, while the stock is mounted to the other end, at ninety degrees to the arms. When the anchor lands on the bottom, it will generally fall over with the arms parallel to the seabed. As a strain comes onto the rode, the stock will dig into the bottom, canting the anchor until one of the flukes catches and digs into the bottom. The basic design has remained unchanged for centuries, with the most significant changes being to the overall proportions, and a move from wooden stocks to those of iron. Sure, it takes up space on deck. Sure, it’s heavy and cumbersome. But let me ask you this: What value should we place on peace of mind? What’s the sense of having something handier aboard if, when most critical, it doesn’t work? So the next time you’re rounding a point close by, or when you’re anchored in an unprotected cove for lunch and suddenly a summer storm drives in, pinning you to a lee shore, think about this anchor. In fact, instead of getting one on your cufflinks or napkins, get one for real. Gotta go… bye. Dave Roper works and sails out of Marblehead, Mass. editor@pointseast.com

Five tactics for boating with a newbie f you’ve been boating for years, chances are you’ve forgotten what it feels like to be a newcomer setting a tentative foot on a rocking platform on the water. Yet, at some point, you are likely to find yourself inviting a non-boater to come aboard. Perhaps it’s your mother-inlaw, or your daughter’s boyfriend, or that nice person you met at the market. We happen to be sailors, so much of what I say below

is written from the standpoint of an owner of a wind-driven vessel. However, many of my suggestions will apply to the treatment of guests on powerboats, too. Power or sail, there’s more to worry about than what kind of soles are on your guest’s shoes. To ensure that both of you have a good time, here are five things to keep in mind as you prepare to leave the dock.

A non-boater may have no idea how things work on a sailboat or a powerboat, so explain. This was illustrated to my husband, Rick, and me on our Cape Dory 33 Ara when we invited some acquaintances from my organization’s headquarters to go for a sail. Ben, a handsome, tall, brilliant policy analyst, asked how he could help so I passed him a jib sheet. I soon was shocked to find him pushing on the sheet. Yes, pushing instead of pulling. Ok, that’s an extreme case. But you can’t assume any knowledge if your passenger admits to having no experience. Give him or her a simple explanation of how the wind passes through the slot between the sails and thus powers the boat. Let him know that when the wind pushes on the sails, the boat will tilt. Lead him on a quick tour of your craft, which brings me to the second point. Speak English first, then translate. Don’t start the trip by asking your guest to stow her ditty bag on the starboard settee in the saloon. Yes, you are bilingual, but remember, she is not. Make sure your friend knows what you’re saying. Then, if she seems interested, teach her a few of the more useful words, especially words that may come up as you sail: port, starboard, bow, stern, jib, main, mast, boom, buoy, halyard, sheet, leeward, windward, heel, tack, jibe, etc. Don’t overwhelm her; let her ask for more rather than forcing it. And here’s an added benefit: Teaching sailing vocabulary can turn into a game that will carry the conversation if you run out of things to chat about. Oh, and be sure to explain about the keel. Tell your friend how heavy it is. And when the boat is “tilting” wildly, remind her that the keel will keep the boat from capsizing (unless you’re sailing in a Sunfish or a Laser or something made for capsizing). Go for safety, not style points. When I was 17 and already madly in love with Rick, he gave me a heavy green ex-Army jacket, which I wore everywhere, including on the Lightning on which I crewed every Sunday at the Winnepesaukee Yacht Club in Gilford, N.H. During one gusty race, I was swept overboard by the boom as we made a surprise jibe. I almost drowned trying to swim with that jacket on. In hindsight (about 20 years later), I realized how foolish that was. So, today, if I think a guest should wear a PFD, I don one first and offer another to him. If it’s not safe to go up on the deck, I say, “Stay in the cockpit and talk to me.” Be firm; some people don’t like to admit that there could be danger or that they might be frightened. There’s an old family tale about my father racing in our Lightning with my Great-Uncle Henry, who must have been in his late-70s at the time and considered himself an Old Salt. Uncle Henry would never be caught dead wearing a PFD, but he was almost caught dead

without one. They were running downwind, the spinnaker fouled, and Uncle Henry went forward to unwrap it. A big puff hit, and Uncle Henry was whisked right off the bow. (He did survive, only slightly the worse for wear.) You’re the captain: You must explain that on a boat the captain’s word is law. Say it nicely, but say it firmly. Even if this is your boss you’re talking to, or your girlfriend’s husky older brother, be clear. Put comfort at the top of the list. That other sailboat that you’re trying to catch? Your guest won’t think less of you for letting them get away, especially if it means you’ll relax, stop sailing so close to windward, and keep your boat sailing on its bottom and throwing up less spray. You and I may not mind heeling at 35 degrees, but chances are a newbie will be scared witless. Even if you’ve explained about your weighty keel, she’ll still be full of dread. Go ahead, reef the sails, spill some wind, take it easy. The point is not to instill a lifelong fear of boating. And watch the wind, the sun, the temperature. Bring up a boat cushion or two. Offer a fleece or a hat. Serve a snack. Which reminds me…. Stop seasickness before it becomes a problem. Is your guest suddenly quiet and pale? Yawning? Bring out the crackers. Pour a glass of ginger beer or offer a bit of crystallized ginger candy. No one knows if he’s prone to seasickness until he goes to sea. But certain things can contribute to seasickness. Anxiety, for one. That’s another reason why you don’t need to put your vessel on her side during this cruise. An empty stomach, for another. Maybe you were planning to break out the snacks on the downwind leg. But if your passenger is already feeling woozy amid tacks to windward, give him a couple of crackers to settle his stomach. Explain that sometimes it just takes awhile to get used to the motion of the boat, and encourage him to stand, look around, and make himself at home. Some people, my daughter included, swear by wristbands. Encourage a newbie to wear them if he’s never been sailing. They’ll act as a placebo if nothing else. In a more extreme case, or with someone who admits to having been seasick before, drugs can be effective, but they have to be taken ahead of time. Seasickness is something to avoid, for it can ruin the trip for everyone. If you follow these tips and pay attention to your guest’s needs, you’ll be inducting a new person into the worldwide club of people who are at least mildly fond of boating. Did someone, once, long ago, introduce you to the joys of being on the water? Here’s your chance to “pay it forward,” as the saying goes. Barbara Burt and her husband, Rick, recently acquired Lark, a Nordic 40, which they sailed from Annapolis to Maine last June. They look forward to sailing out of Rockland this summer with friends of all levels of experience.

Fish er

Anchoring: So complex, so many variables s the classic scene begins to unfold, most of us pour another rum, lean back in the cockpit, and get ready for some great action. Female on the bow, male at the helm; male yells to female, “Throw the anchor.” Off goes a Brady pass spiraling through the air, chain and line wraps around the flukes, and there’s not a chance that the two-pound Hail Mary, All-Purpose Anchor will actually dig into the bottom and hold the boat. But it will fool them for a while, until after dark, when it’s raining, the wind has piped up to 30 mph, and they don’t have any clothes on. Anchoring: So complex, so many variables. There is the depth issue: Will there actually be water here at low tide? Then scope: Some skippers snub her tight the moment the anchor reaches bottom. This prevents the boat from swinging onto the rocks six feet away to port. Then the weight issue: Will a cement-filled, 12-ounce Bud Light can with eight feet of wire-ties connected to a bungee cord be sufficient to anchor a 40-foot, twinscrew fuel barge? Who would think you might want a junked Ford followed by a big chunk of chain? Scope,

depth, current, chain, line, anchor type: No wonder cocktails at the dock are so popular. Let’s say, for the sake of discussion, that late on a lazy summer afternoon we are on the hook in Hadley Harbor. The rush hour is over; it was bedlam for a while when 50 percent of the boats trying to get through Woods Hole actually made it safely. But now things are quiet, just the soothing sound of popping bottle caps and corks. That is, until we look up and see a nuclear sub moving backwards at 50 knots aimed right at our 28-foot wooden ketch. We head for the deck to fend off; the female on the bow of the hyperbolic sub turns and realizes that the situation is headed downhill and alerts the male at the helm. After taking evasive action, he lets her, and the rest of the anchorage, know what she did wrong. She pulls a pistol and one problem is solved. So maybe it is better to just take a mooring and not bother anchoring: We did. Make it another lazy summer afternoon, location World’s End in Hingham. There are lots of empty moorings, so we grab one, crack a beer, and lean back. We soon realize that, based on recent observations, either the trees on shore are

Taking a closer look it becomes obvious that the trees and even the substantial rock ledges have definitely moved. Well, it is a nice mooring ball, but we are concerned that it is not connected to an object that is buried in the mud. In fact, it is clearly not connected to anything. Chuck the moving mooring and set the anchor . . . should have done that in the first place. Moral of the story: If you don’t know what is down there, don’t use it — or rocks don’t usually move. Then there was Hurricane Bob, early ’90s, location P-Town. Back then, there was usually room to anchor behind the breakwater, and that is where we were. As it became clear that we were in for a blow, we deployed the heavy artillery: Two big anchors, lots of scope and chafing gear, and reasonably protected spot seemed like a solution. That is, until the local water constabulary advised us that we would have to move to a mooring. Reluctantly, we moved, secured the boat, added chafing gear, and headed for high ground. At storm’s end, the boat was on the beach trailing a length of mooring gear off the bow — gear that ended with chain the thickness of a rubber band. Well, it was a sandy beach, double-planked mahogany boats are

tough, and there was only minor cosmetic damage. With some help from the Ryder Yard Whaler (it was not their mooring), she was off the beach in no time. In the process my shoes were stolen, and someone offered to sell us a video of the whole thing. Moral: Don’t take your shoes off in P-Town, or, if you don’t know what’s down there . . . well, you know the rest. Or could it be something about cruising in hurricanes? So many lessons! There seem to be some common threads that run through most real anchoring action. First, the exciting part is often at night, generally around 2 a.m. Second, tornados and 150 other weather variables are usually part of the equation. It also appears that anger-management skills should be part of basic-boating courses. Finally, and this is the odd part, nudity is often involved. With that thought in mind, moving forward, this will be written as if it was about someone else. OK, so question that “someone’s” sanity, but once more the scene is P-Town, and no, the nudity part, is not what you think. Boat Number 1 (try to remember this) is anchored very securely off the beach up inside Long Point. This, in retrospect, is probably where this anonymous couple should have been for Hurricane

Further, could it be that the wind has piped up to 30 mph, that it is pouring rain, with visibility about two feet? Of course. In some ways, the visibility thing isn’t so bad; there wasn’t any time to get dressed. Bob. Around 2 a.m., the crew, husband and wife, are woken up by lots of yelling and flashing searchlights. A quick look at the GPS and the anchor light on a friend’s boat confirms their position, which is far away from where they were originally anchored and moving quickly across the bay toward the east end of P-Town. Not ideal. The boat (Number 2), which is yelling and flashing lights, was once anchored to windward. Could it be that boat Number 2 has dragged across the anchor line of boat Number 1? Yup. And could it be that Number 2 has unset Number 1’s anchor? Yup again. Further, could it be that the wind has piped up to 30 mph, that it is pouring rain, with visibility about two feet? Of course. In some ways, the visibility thing isn’t so bad; there wasn’t any time to get dressed. Moral of the story: Glad for that friend’s anchor light; pretty near impossible to see anything otherwise. Oh sure, there could be some other lessons learned — stuff about using the anchor alarm, know where your clothes are, don’t try to label boats as numbers 1 and

2 — but one lesson at a time. Move to Cuttyhunk, inside the basin, two 35-foot powerboats, each crewed by a couple, have rafted together on a 35-pound CQR with an all-chain rode and two nylon snubbers. Around midnight a line of squalls moves through the area. The squalls are strong, with gusts bouncing off 60 mph. There is thunder, there is lightning, it’s raining stair rods, the world is coming to an end, and, of course, some boats are dragging anchor. Another normal night onboard. Near the two powerboats, a sailboat is dragging. The skipper is alone. Somehow, in the confusion, the sailboat gets at a right angle to the powerboats’ bows. Not just one bow, but two bows, both with pulpits the size of construction cranes, and one with a great-big-old CQR rigging magnet still sitting on the roller. The captain of the anchored powerboat starts the engine to take off some strain; the other three persons head forward to fend off. Good thing it is dark; it’s the old clothes issue again. Needless to say, the sailboat rigging gets totally tangled in the bowsprits and the diabolical anchor.

Oh sure, there could be some other lessons learned — stuff about using the anchor alarm, know where your clothes are . . . but one lesson at a time. The mostly undressed powerboat crews work feverishly to hold off the sailboat and work it off the bowsprits; one mast stay is hooked on the anchor. Slowly, the sailboat, now about the size of the Queen Mary, is moved backwards, each stay in turn getting hooked on the anchor. Each stay in turn getting wedged between the bowsprits. Finally the sailboat is clear; nothing broken, no one hurt. Powerboat anchor still holding, sailboat heads off to a mooring. The moon comes out, the wind dies down, and everyone sleeps happily until noon. Moral of the story: Avoid bad weather and know where your clothes are: One impossible; the other unlikely. Anchoring, you will trust that unseen object to hold at 2 a.m. when the wind has done a 180 and piped up to 30, it is raining hacksaw blades, your clothes are neatly folded somewhere in western China, and you are thinking that a cottage on shore is usually stationary. You’ll laugh in the morning, and then do it all over again the next night.

Stonington Borough, Conn., resident Kathr yn Burchenal and Charlestown, R.I., resident Mike Logan were the surprise recipients of CUSH Sea Star Awards May 22. Sea Star awards are given to honor individuals who have made, or are making, “significant” contributions to improving local water quality. Kathr yn Burchenal used her skill as a grant writer to bring CUSH its first major award of $11,096 from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation/LIS Fund for water testing, followed by the successful 2010 $43,000 pump-out station grant. Mike Logan suggested the Town of Westerly take action

against the debris in the water and on Rhode Island beaches in the late 1990s. He worked with Rhode Island DEM and Connecticut DEP to make Fisher’s Island Sound a “no dumping” zone for boats and arranged for CT DEP to fund the purchase of the first two Westerly pump-out boats. He directed installation of the first land-based holding tank pump-out station emptying into Westerly sewers. FMI: www.cush.org.

Rybovich classics at Mystic Seaport Rybovich custom-built sportfishing boats have been selected as Marquee Class in the Antique & Classic Boat Show July 22-23. On this weekend, over 1,500 spectators will descend upon Mystic Seaport to see more than 50 vintage

wood boats, including “Rybos” launched between 1957 and 1965. Each was custom designed and built by Tommy Rybovich as a masterpiece, blending technological innovation, speed and per formance with his futuristic signature style. Founded in West Palm Beach in 1919, Rybovich & Sons Boat Works splashed its first boat in 1947. “Fortune” magazine called Rybovich “the Stradivarius of sportfishing boats,” and Rybos were associated with such names as Firestone, Hutton, Ballantine, duPont, Gillette, and Maytag (along with a handful of gangsters to keep things interesting). Pat Rybovich (daughter of Tommy) will sign copies of her book, “Rybovich,” and share stories behind each custom-built Rybo on display. FMI: www.mysticseaport.org.

PASSAGES/T hey

wil l be m issed

Edward John “JT” Thompson 68, Southampton, Bermuda

The Olympic sailor and Marion-Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race veteran died on May 29, after battling cancer for the past year and a half. A native Bermudian, Mr. Thompson was famous for sailing anything that floated, and competed in, among other craft, Lasers, Finns, Solings, Fitted Dinghies, Sunfish, and J/105s. He represented the island in the Finn Class at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. Three years later, he raced in the Pan-Am Games in Solings. Thompson was commodore of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club from 1992 until 1994. Thompson also competed in several Marion to Bermuda races, the last of which he raced in 2007, as well as taking part in the Newport Bermuda Race. In 1983, when a lightning strike crippled his ship’s communication systems during a Bermuda race, Thompson and his crew were gone for more than two weeks. Using a transistor radio, Thompson would find a station and sail in the direction that the signal seemed to be the strongest. Using this method, and the stars, Thompson and his crew eventually found their way back to Bermuda. FMI: www.royalgazette.com.

Maine SailMaine Portland, Maine SailMaine, found on the Portland Harbor waterfront along the Eastern Promenade walking path and adjacent to the Portland Yacht Service (PYS) marina, was formed to support sailing in Maine at the grassroots community level. “SailMaine connects people of all ages and abilities to the coast of Maine through fun and affordable sailing education, recreation, and competition, stimulating individual growth and creating community,” states the nonprofit’s mission. In the sailing lessons and recreation offered, and in the organization’s work with competitive youth-sailing teams, SailMaine is committed to promoting the values of leadership, sportsmanship, self-reliance, and respect for the environment. SailMaine strives to be not only a provider for local community access to the water, but also a facilitator for the growth of the understanding of the marine environment and heritage.

learn to sail, the number one thing both they and their parents comment on is their increased confidence. When you learn to rig and then skipper a sailboat and get from point A to point B without an adult’s help, the feeling is exhilarating — as liberating as the first solo bike ride. The individual growth that so many of our sailors experience after a few weeks of sailing is invaluable.” Availability of family packages: “We offer an open sail series throughout the summer — it gives people a chance to explore the Portland waters under sail casually, with no racing pressure. We are also hoping to offer lessons for families as a branch of our adult learn-to-sail program.” Contact info: Sarah Helming, director of programs/events, 58 Fore St., Portland, ME 04101; email: learntosail@sailmaine.org, 207-650-2085, www.sailmaine.org.

New Hampshire UNH Community Sailing Center Barrington, N.H. The summer program offers lessons to children ages 6-18 in sailing, kayaking, and canoeing. The Sailing Center has widened its outreach to the community by starting a kayaking and canoeing program for both children and adults during the summer, in addition to sailing.

Fleet: The Sailing Center was destroyed by fire in March 2010, but out of the ashes grew a strong camaraderie among the team, the local community and the extended family of friends, relatives and sailing enthusiasts, determined to turn hope into reality. Today, the Sailing Center stands strong with a beautiful new boathouse, a small fleet of LaserPerformance Bugs, a variety of donated or loaned recreational boats, and a brand-new fleet of FJs (Flying Juniors) with a new set of racing sails sporting our Wildcat mascot. Introducing kids to sailing: A child who may not excel at another sport may gain confidence through boating that will sustain him through life. The college and community programs give people of all ages a chance to learn a lifetime sport, build lasting friendships, and become a member of the sailing community around the globe. Availability of family packages: Available to all. Contact info: Diana Weidenbacker, director; Mendum’s Pond, Barrington, N.H.; 603-868-5189, www.home.comcast.net/~unhcommunitysailing/site.

Community Boating Center, Inc. New Bedford, Mass. Community Boating Center (CBC) is a nonprofit, educational organization that provides people from the Greater New Bedford area with challenging and enriching new experiences through boating. It strives to instill in the young, and continue to teach people of all ages, the value of integrity, sound judgment, teamwork and environmental awareness. This is accomplished by offering educational opportunities and access to the marine environment, regardless of means, through instruction, mentoring and coaching. CBC hosts US Sailing Level I and Level II Instructor Training. In 2010, CBC was awarded a US Power Boating Grant to teach safe powerboating to instructors, students and families. Each year, more than 1,000

students participate in programs offered by CBC. These students range from adults getting introduced to the sport, to kids participating in weekly camps, and private lessons, as well as programs offered during the school year with participating educational institutions. CBC’s summer programming has more than 75 percent of the students on scholarship from low-income families from the Greater New Bedford area. These children are generally referred to CBC through a partner organization such as Child & Family Services. CBC uses sailing as a tool to help instill important life lessons in students, many of whom do not receive positive mentoring in their homes. CBC also offers lessons for adults on both weekday evenings or on weekends. Taught in Sonar keelboats, classes follow the US Sailing Keelboat Training Curriculum, which includes equipment and safety, parts of the boat, sailing terminology, and fundamentals of navigation. The Intermediate Keelboat Class is 12 hours of hands-on instruction. CBC also offers a Boat Rental Program at the Clarke’s Cove site. The rental fleet has Sonars, Catalina Capris, Picos and Vanguard 420s. Fleet: Club 420s, optimists, Capris 14.2, Sonars, Lasers, Laser Pico’s, Rhodes 19s.

Community Boating, Inc. Boston, Mass. When Community Boating Inc. says their mission is “sailing for all,” they mean it. The mission also includes minimizing physical and economic barriers to sailing, so the organization tries to keep membership costs low to give the option of learning how to sail to everyone. Membership includes all classes, boat usage and guest privileges. The second sentence in Community Boating’s mission is “empowering our members in the spirit of volunteerism and creating that sense of community.” Volunteers play a significant role: Social committees, racing, harbor trips, etc., are run by volunteers. The

body of water on which they sail is small, but this milelong stretch of river, between two bridges and two shores, is perfect for the programs: No tide, no current or heavy marine current. Fleet: 120-plus boats; majority are 15-foot Cape Cod Mercuries. Also Sonar keelboats and Lasers and 420s, kayaks and windsurfers. Introducing kids to sailing: “It starts with a weeklong Learn to Sail Class, three hours a day for five days. All students receive beginning sailing lessons as well as kayaking in a low student-to-teacher ratio, sailing every day, even Day One. By the end of the five days, they have their beginner rating and can take out a Mercury by themselves.” Family packages: “None; only individual memberships.” Contact info: Marcin Kunicki, development director; 21 David Mugar Way, Boston, Mass. 02114; info@community-boating.org, 617-523-1038, www.community-boating.org.

Rhode Island Community Boating Center Providence, R.I. The Community Boating Center (CBC) opened in June 1994 with a small fleet, a few docks, and a boat shed built with donated materials and volunteer labor. CBC is a true grass-roots success story, organized and implemented entirely by volunteers. Today, the new boathouse, fleet of 60-plus boats, and dedicated membership, positions CBC as an integral component to the success and growth of Providence’s waterfront revival. Last year, over 750 children experienced CBC’s outreach programs. These children were primarily recruited through liaisons with structured organizations in the Greater Providence area. Boys and girls from different cultures and backgrounds work together, learning tolerance, trust and respect for one another. Most importantly, these kids can continue to enjoy the sport because CBC makes it accessible and affordable. CBC offers a variety of youth and adult sailing lessons. “Sailorships” are also available for classes for youth students who meet eligibility requirements.

Greenwich Community Sailing Old Greenwich, Conn. Greenwich Community Sailing, which is open exclusively to Greenwich residents, has a fleet of 75 sailboats, kayaks and paddleboards. They operate out of Greenwich Point Park, at a building rented from Old Greenwich Yacht Club. Sailing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding instruction and rentals are offered, and all instructors are US Sail-

ing-certified. The focus is on building trust by challenging students gradually. With introductory level classes, the youngest students start on double kayaks rather than sailboats. With muscle-powered boats, they gain valuable on-the-water experience: finding the wind, feeling the motion of the waves, and communicating with their crew. When teaching them to capsize, right their vessels, and re-enter them, kayaks provide the controlled circumstances instructors like. Only once they have proven comfortable with those skills, they will they be asked to move on to a sailboat, which comes with the restrictions and complexities of wind power.

Introducing kids to sailing: â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far as teaching our youngest students how to sail, perhaps the most important fundamental leap we have to get kids to make involves mastering their fear. In fact, anxiety is probably the biggest obstacle to learning that children face out on the water. What that means for our instructors is that we must make trust and safety the highest priority. Anxiety and fear on the other hand can become insurmountable obstacles to learning. . . .

Sailors for the Sea launches Rainy Day Kits for kids in programs Sailors for the Sea, an ocean-conser vation nonprofit focused on the boating community, announced the publication of Sailors for the Sea Rainy Day Kits for Environmental Education, marine-science-based lesson plans for incorporation into youth-sailing programs. The free lesson plans, available online, were created in partnership with marine biology and science institutions to provide practical educational tools for teaching the principles of environmental sustainability to young sailors. The Rainy Day Kits program enhances youth-sailing programs by integrating environmental education into traditional sailing instruction. The program’s success will be measured in the creation of a new generation of ocean stewards. Sailing instructors not formally trained in ecology or biology can easily incorporate the flexible lesson plans into their sailing instruction. “The 30- to 45-minute modules are science based and designed for junior sailors and children around the country,” said Dan Pingaro, CEO, Sailors for the Sea, which is located on the second floor of the Seamen’s Church Institute, Bowen’s Wharf, Newport, R.I. The first six Rainy Day Kits lesson plans include: Bio-Magnification Game, contributed by the Rozalia Project

Contact info: Don Rotzien, general manager; Greenwich Point Park, P.O. Box 195, Old

for a Clean Ocean: A game that demonstrates the concept of bio-magnification as it relates to plastics and how chemicals and plastics can make it onto our dinner plates. Clam Jigsaw, contributed by Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies: Students create a cutout model of a clam to investigate the anatomy and physiology of these animals. Density Currents, contributed by the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. This demonstrates the thermohaline circulation throughout the world’s oceans and the relative density between cold and warm ocean water. Dirty Water Challenge, contributed by the New England Aquarium: Inquiry and discussion is embedded within the practical-students have to design, plan and then build their own design of water filter. Oyster Tag, contributed by Sailors for the Sea: A game that demonstrates the effects of pollution on oyster reefs and the effect of oyster reefs on pollution. The first six lesson plans can be download at www.sailorsforthesea.org/programs-and-projects/rainy-day-kits.aspx. FMI: Chris Mancini, chris@sailorsforthesea.org, info@sailorsforthesea.org.

Mystic Seaport Mystic, Conn. The community sailing program started 62 years ago with Scouts, at which time it was called the Mariner Program. Today the Seaport has a fleet of JY 15s and over 50 Dyer Dhows, the largest fleet of Dyers in North America. On any given day, the program can have 80 sailing on the Mystic River. Community Sailing instructors are certified through either the Red Cross or US Sailing for sailing safety, boat operation, CPR and first-aid. Youth programs are geared toward beginners and intermediate sailors ages 8-14. Competent swimmers ages 15 and older may enroll in adult classes. Experienced sailors (ages 12+) who do not require instruction can participate in the racing series. Spring and fall, most community sailing classes are done with the Dyers; then, when participants feel comfortable, they move up to the JYs. In the summer, adults are on both Dyers and JYs and kids are on the JY15s. A racing series through editor@pointseast.com


Community Sailing is held in spring and fall. A regatta, the Dyer Dhow Derby, is held for the donors of the Dyers. The large site used for the community sailing program is the Youth Training Facility Fleet: 50 Dyer Dhows and a fleet of 10 JY15s Introducing kids to sailing: “Our approach is simple: We spend some time in the classroom getting people oriented to the terms, the ideas, and such . . . get everyone out on the water and practice. . . . We play games to improve the skills they have already learned. The lunchtime after a morning sail is great because we all can sit around the picnic table and talk about what they learned, how they learned it. and what they need to improve..” Family packages: Family classes are held for one parent and up to two kids or two adults and one child. “We have family sailing classes in the summer.” Contact info: Hallie Payne, supervisor of overnight and community sailing programs reservations; Mystic Seaport, P.O.

The program was originally formed to fulfill the community outreach goals of SHYC. The Sailing Foundation is now totally independent of the Yacht Club, serves the broad needs of the community, and offers both sailing and marine biology programs. Children from other yacht clubs take sailing from Stonington Harbor Yacht Club Sailing Foundation because of the foundation’s excellent instructors.

Maritime boats feature a unique hull design that has all the sea-keeping features of offshore fishing boats but operates efficiently with low to moderate sized engines. The result is a fuel efficient, dry riding, seaworthy, “unsinkable” boat that delivers outstanding performance.

Kids will find Optimist programs, 420 programs, race clinics, Fantastic Fridays, one-week programs, and private lessons. Marine Biology is offered for those as young as 4 and as old as 17. The foundation provides scholarships to local children, most who could not afford to get out on the water. It is committed to teaching Special Olympics athletes weekly during the summer, for as long as community sailing is taught. The Foundation expects to purchase properties, including three buildings and a dock, next to Skipper’s Dock Restaurant on Water Street, on the former site of the Garbo Lobster pound and location for the restaurant in the movie “Mystic Pizza.” Fleet: 75 boats including Optis, 420s (Club and Collegiate), JY14, JY15, Introducing kids to sailing: “Foundation scholarships provide access for individuals of need to experience and learn the sport of sailing and learn about our marine environment by participating in our Marine Biology Program. This combination of sailing and science is enriching because

students learn much more than sailing and marine biology — they acquire life skills such as dependability, independence, self-reliance, confidence, concentration, respect, and how to become an effective member of a team.

The SHYC Sailing Foundation experience conveys the seminal message for similar programs around New England: “Our programs produce positive growth in students from the very first day they set foot in a boat. Think of children when that grimace of trepidation turns into a smile of accomplishment recognizing for the first time that ‘I can!’ Those life skills should be accessible to all.” A resident of Killingworth, Conn., regular contributor Susan Cornell and her husband, Bob, “pretty much live at Pilot Point during the summer” – between southern New England cruises with their kids aboard their Nonsuch 30 Halcyon, that is.

Flight of the Snow Goose Despite a dicey forecast, we set off from the Saco, bound for Casco Bay, aboard Dad’s Marblehead 23 cruiser because time was short and we craved an adventure. Well, we got one.

Snow Goose, a Marblehead 23, was an old boat by the time she came into our family.

By Randy Randall For Points East ven though we know it’s risky and almost certainly a mistake, when time is of the essence and we’re on a tight schedule, we sometimes throw caution to the winds. And then we often find ourselves in what the old-timers called a “hard chance,” when you have to keep on and tough it out. That’s how it was with my Dad and me and my friends when we set out for Casco Bay.

strain the rope was under and prayed it was strong enough to keep us off the rocks. To our relief, the boat obeyed the anchor and kept riding up and over and down the combers that continued to funnel into Seal Cove. We knew there would be no chance to set the spare anchor hidden away in the lazarette. This was it. When Bob and I made our way along the gunwales back to the deck, we found a little oasis of peace and quiet behind the cabin and the windshield. All around us we could see and hear the waves pounding on the shore, and the rocks right behind the old Snow Goose weren’t all that far off. If that anchor drags tonight we’re goners, we thought. By now, Dad had shut down the Palmer, and it seemed almost peaceful without the constant thrum and exhaust burbling behind us. The boat had a canvas dodger that could be raised from the windshield over the helm station for additional shelter; we raised this, the wind didn’t rip it apart, and inside it was dry and fairly comfortable. Bob and I found some dry clothes, and Dad and Bill began to sort out the jumble of groceries and gear that covered the cabin. As we prepared for the long night ahead, each of us was hypersensitive to the sound of the wind and motion of the boat. We knew that if either variable changed, we’d be drifting. We took careful compass bearings and visuals on every identifiable landmark.

I volunteered to go forward and check on the anchor line one more time. I found it just as we had left it, bowstring tight, angling down into the waves, and pulling like a draught horse. For a brief moment I wished Bobby and I had thought to stuff some chafing gear under the line, but it was too late for that now, for we could lift that rope out of the chock. Besides, hanging out on the bow of that plunging and rearing boat was not an especially good idea right at that moment. I would have let out more scope, but our stern was already dangerously close to the shore and Dad wasn’t about to fire up the engine and maneuver in that maelstrom unless it was absolutely necessary. He repeated the old sailor’s dictum that “as long as she cracks, she holds.” I could only imagine what it must have been like aboard a clipper ship and hearing those giant masts creaking and groaning under the strain of the gales. We dug out the old sounding lead and dropped that over the side: Eight feet, and the Snow Goose drew about three. As night was falling and we were preparing the riding light, Bill looked toward the mouth of the cove and said, “Don’t look now guys but we’ve got company.” Up until then, we’d had Seal Cove to ourselves, but a sailing yacht of eye-catching dimensions was racing into the harbor and bearing right down on us. She was a SNOW GOOSE, continued on Page 59

SNOW GOOSE, continued from Page 54 gold-plater for sure, and we all watched in fascination as the crew brought her into the small cove, rounded up, and released the anchor, which rattled through the hawse pipe. We saw the puff of diesel exhaust as the skipper set her back on the hook, and then everyone disappeared below. Just like that, we thought, they’d rushed into Seal Cove, secured the yacht, and no doubt sped to the saloon for wine and cheese. I went below to argue with the alcohol stove and coax it to run. I passed up some cool beers and got ready to cook our beans and weenies for supper. And still the anchor and rope held. The longer it held, the more accustomed to our tenuous situation we became. We even began to relax a little, but the persistent wind didn’t diminish, and the Snow Goose just kept rising and falling, meeting each roller bow on. Bill and Dad slept in the cabin, and Bobby and I spread out the air mattresses and sleeping bags on the deck, but it was impossible to sleep. All night long, I kept hitching up on my elbows and peering over the gunwales to check our position. We listened attentively for some change in the drone of the wind, and I took bearings on the yacht off to leeward. In the middle of the night, we were awakened by the sounds of their engine starting and more chain rattling overboard. Evidently, they hadn’t allowed sufficient scope, and the million-dollar boat had been dragging. But not the old

Snow Goose. We were up at first light. The wind had finally blown itself out, and you could see some catenary in the anchor rode. We were alarmed, though, when we lowered the cockpit tent and saw boulders and rocks almost touching our rudder. “We’ve drifted,” I yelled to Dad in panic. “The anchor didn’t hold.” But then wise, old Dad reminded me it was low tide and that our little cove had just shrunk in size. The anchor had not dragged at all but had held us safely and securely throughout the night. We watched the fancy yacht up-anchor and motor out of the cove. By the time the sun was up, we’d all had our perked coffee and sausage and eggs and doughnuts for breakfast. We complimented the skipper for planning an extra day for “emergencies,” he hit the starter button, and the Palmer coughed and came up running. Dad shoved the old bent-pipe shifter ahead, and we crept up on the anchor. Bob and I pulled in the rode hand over hand, and then two-manned the anchor. We swished it around to wash that beautiful Seal Cove mud off the flukes, then heaved the Danforth onto the foredeck. Bob looked at me and said quietly, “Well that was interesting. I can’t wait to see where we’ll be dropping this anchor tonight.” Randy Randall is co-owner of Marston’s Marina, a “Clean Marina,” in Saco, Maine.

THERACINGPAGES George David’s Rambler 100, out of Hartford, Conn., looks formidable at the start of the 186-mile Block Island Race.

Rambler decimates Block Island Race record Even though it moved along at only five knots for several hours and briefly parked three times when the wind switched off completely, Rambler 100, George David’s rocket ship out of Stamford, Conn., broke — by 42 minutes and 45 seconds — Boomerang’s 2002 record in the Storm Trysail Club’s 66th Block Island Race. The 186-mile started on Friday afternoon of Memorial Day weekend and sent 59 boats in eight classes (six IRC and two PHRF) on a course from Stamford, Conn. (home of host Stamford Yacht Club), down Long Island Sound, clockwise around Block Island, R.I., and back. Rambler 100 finished early Saturday morning after sailing for just over 15 hours and 43 minutes, while the last boat finished Sunday afternoon just 60 Points East July 2011

after 4 p.m. Though gaining an edge in the Block Island Race typically means correctly choosing between two current-ridden passages — Plum Gut and The Race — for the fastest passage to Block Island (and then again coming back from it), this year’s key to success seemed to lie in getting to the Long Island shore as quickly as possible after the start. Rambler’s class was the last to start, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy’s Reichel/Pugh 65 Vanquish, out of Kings Point, N.Y., made the move to shore first, while others who were in the middle of the Sound seemed stuck.

Two books for kids who care about the oceans By Sandy Marsters For Points East

World Without Fish By Mark Kurlansky, illustrated by Frank Stockton, Workman Publishing, 192 pp., $16.95, ages 9-12

Lesson Plan Ahoy! By Nadine Slavinski, Slavinski-Schweitzer Press, 148 pp., $24.95.

Kids are naturally drawn to boats. But will they stay with them? That largely depends on whether or not their appetites are properly whetted at an early age. And the best way to do that is with experience on the water. And with books. There are many classic books about life at sea that are certain to stir the young imagination. Unfortunately, either today’s writers aren’t writing these any more or publishers aren’t publishing them, because there aren’t many boating adventure stories on the shelves these days. I’ll offer my list of favorite kids’ boating classics later. First, a look at a couple of books about boats and the sea that perhaps represent a new genre — books not meant

to kindle the young imagination, but instead to deepen young peoples’ connection to the sea. These are different times. Until a couple of decades ago, we didn’t worry about sustainability. Heck, when I was a kid cruising in Maine in the late ’50s, we’d just toss the trash overboard every morning soon after we got under way. We could catch flounder by the bucketful just for the sake of it. I don’t think anyone had even thought of holding tanks yet. But as Mark Kurlansky warns in his latest book, “World Without Fish,” all our past misbehaviors are now coming

back to haunt us — and our children and our grandchildren. Kurlansky wrote “Cod,” a penetrating view into the crash of a fishing stock that once seemed limitless. That book was for grown-ups. “World Without Fish” is for the younger set, aimed at teens with an interest in the natural sciences. Adults will like it, too, but since it’s too late for most of us to save the planet, Kurlansky is laying out the issue for a younger generation, and he pulls no punches. Using conventional text, cartoons and illustrations by Frank Stockton, and lots of very large type in a handwriting font — with the scariest stuff in red — Kurlansky sets out to frighten young people into action with a dismal look at the next 40 or so years as the sea falls victim to overfishing, pollution and global warming. “WITHOUT LARGE BOTTOM FISH TO DRIVE THE SMALL FISH TO THE SURFACE, SEABIRDS WOULD DIE OUT,” warns one bit of blown-up type. On another page large red type on a black background warns, “IF DARWIN IS RIGHT, WE ARE ALL DOOMED.” It continues in white type: “ALL SPECIES WILL HAVE MODIFICATIONS THAT WILL DEVELOP INTO NEW SPECIES, AND THE ORIGINAL SPECIES WILL BECOME EXTINCT.” At times, it all appears too hysterical, and not in a funny way. But borrowing from the style of the popular graphic novels, it does help to drive home the points he is making far more scientifically in the text, which is very readable for anyone with a 4th- or fifth-grade education. It’s a good refresher course in biology, and Darwin for all of us. Kurlansky also uses occasional cartoon panels that tell the story of Kram the natural scientist and his daughter Ailat and their friends who own a fishing boat. Fisherman and scientist don’t see eye to eye, but the evidence mounts as Kram points out the orange sea created by a red tide, the ailing reefs, the lower catches, and the plentiful jellyfish. This book isn’t fun, and it isn’t meant to be. It is a wake-

up call to those with the time and, hopefully, the motivation to do something about it — today’s school kids. To Kurlansky, the situation is dire but not hopeless, and he lays out a clear path for action. For those who don’t go to a conventional school but are home-schooled on boats, Nadine Slavinsky offers a different kind of book. “Lesson Plans Ahoy!” is designed to make the best use of the environment of kids living on boats. Sailing to distant shores is, of course, an education in itself. But Slavinski seeks to enrich that experience with lessons in earth and space science, biology, data management, measurement, the humanities, and physical education. For the biology unit, all you need is a bony fish caught over the side, a sharp blade, pencil and paper, scissors, and a magnifying glass. Kurlansky then leads teacher (parent) and student through a detailed dissection of the fish. I can’t wait to get back on the boat with my grandson to try some of this. And the lesson plans don’t just work for kids being home-schooled on sailboats. They would also be fun on a short coastal cruise or even on a seaside summer vacation. Oh, and those classics? Here are a few: “We Didn’t Mean To Go to Sea” by Arthur Ransome, along with any of his “Swallows and Amazons” books. Great for reading out loud. “Treasure Island” by Robert Louis Stevenson. “The Boy, Me and The Cat” by Henry M. Plummer. “Robinson Crusoe” by Daniel Defoe. And, of course “Wind in the Willows” by Kenneth Grahame, in which we are reminded that “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” Sandy Marsters, Points East’s stellar reviewer, was a cofounder of the magazine with Bernie Wideman and its first editor.

Two Shellback dinghies built in Searsport science program Two new wooden Shellback dinghies were launched at the Searsport, Maine, town dock in May, representing the successful completion of a semester-long science course for seven students from Searsport District High School. Since January, students Holly Hassapelis, Derrik Kenney, Alex Lane, Emily LaRosa, Jason Pendleton, Shane Sauer, and Rebecca Trimble had been working on the boats with master boatbuilder Greg Rössel at the Penobscot Marine Museum. This was a collaboration between the museum and the high school designed to teach physical science by exposing students to boat-related concepts such as center of effort, buoyancy, vectors, and drag. Science teacher Michelle Andre accompanied the students during much of their shop time, making sure that they met physical science standards through a combination of hands-on and traditional learning activities.

Community volunteers Fred Kirchais, Dave Lawrence, and Rick Fitzsimmons provided additional boatbuilding assistance, and the museum donated work space, tools, and administrative support. The project was funded primarily by a grant from the Nellie Mae Foundation, with additional assistance from the Traditional Small Craft Association’s John Gardner Fund. The boats will remain at the dock for a few weeks, giving the students a chance to try out their creations on the water. The dinghies will then return to Penobscot Marine Museum, where they will be placed on display and advertised for sale at $3,500 each, including oars and sailing rigs. Proceeds will go to fund the program next year, when the project will incorporate academic credit in mathematics as well as science.

Maine Sailing Partners, in Freeport, Maine, has signed on Richard Dowzall, formerly of Lyman-Morse, to start their custom-canvas division, which will specialize in dodgers, biminis, enclosures, and interior and exterior cushions for both sail and power boats. Since 1983, Maine Sailing Partners has been designing, building and servicing sails for racers, cruisers, one-designs, and multihulls. In August 2008, Maine Sailing Partners moved into the new Freeport sailmaking and repair facility at 24 Noble Drive, designed and built to accommodate the largest yacht sails to the smallest dinghy sails. FMI: www.mesailing.com. Boatmoorings.com, a clearing-house for products and services for anchoring boats, docks and marine structures, recently installed new “low-impact” moorings around Misery Island for the town of Beverly, Mass. Instead of having a concrete block sitting on the marine habitat and having a heavy chain sweep around the bottom destroying vegetation, these moorings have a helix anchor screwed into the substrate and a floating elastic “Eco-Mooring Rode” suspended above the bottom. They reportedly have more holding power than the blocks, and the Eco-Mooring rode is said to be four times stronger than the chain typically used. Also, boats are said to ride better with the elasticity. FMI: www.boatmoorings.com, www.helixanchors.com. Mystic Seaport, in Mystic, Conn., has been awarded a $10,000 grant by Tourism Cares, a travel industry charitable organization for tourism preservation, conservation, restoration and education. The Museum is home to a recreated 19th century seafaring village and over 500 historic watercraft, in-

cluding the 1841 whaleship Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden whaling vessel in the world. The special grant will be used to for tools and supplies to help the Museum maintain its grounds and infrastructure. FMI: www.mysticseaport.org.

Langan Design Partners, in Newport, R.I., has announced that Calliope, the latest motor yacht from the office’s drawing boards, has won the World Super Yacht Award for the best three-deck semi-displacement or planing motor yacht. The late Bill Langan, of Jamestown, R.I., led the design of this project from its initial conceptual phase in 2006 to her launch in summer 2010. This vessel can take her owner and eight guests most anywhere in the world. The interior decoration is by Candace Langan Design, also of Newport, whose principal, Candy Langan, is Bill’s widow. FMI: www.LanganDesign.com. Stephens Waring Yacht Design has moved its office from Brooklin, Maine, to 92 Main St., 3rd floor, in Belfast. Their old office – Stephens Waring White Partnership — was adjacent to Brooklin Boat Yard, owned by former partner Steve White. “While their long friendship with White remains unchanged,” the Ellsworth American stated, “they will no longer have any formal connection with Brooklin Boat Yard.”

Eastern Cove is possessed of a compelling drama, great sweep of sea and no sigh of man's ambitions.

What little I know about Eastern Cove astern Cove is one of those wild and brooding places that quiet you. Rugged jolts of pink granite sheer above restless waters, giving way to angled escarpments, inviting meadows, rocky beaches, and compelling drama absent any sign of man’s ambitions. A spectacle for the eyes and sentiment — felt as much as seen — there’s a certain gravity to it, and if fog comes creeping in as it not infrequently does, few places feel more estranged from civilization. Perched precariously on the very margin of outlying islands, eight miles seaward of Maine’s Mount Desert, this rugged, rock-girt bight in the Long Island shore is a fair-weather roadstead, not a snug cove. It can feel volatile. The empty sweep of ocean stretching away to the east is a stirring counterpoint, and sometimes an uneasy scend of sea makes in, kicking our watchfulness receptors into high gear, which is an intense way to see a place. At the head of the anchorage, a rocky crescent of beach rises sharply to a narrow isthmus, separating it from West Cove. Basketball-sized stones cover the beach and bottom, which slopes away steeply but has always held our CQR securely in depths of 20 to 30 feet. A bit of surf often washes the strand, though our landings have been uneventful. Because the beach is steep, the retreating waters quickly ground the dingy and offer precious seconds to haul it clear. Almost the entire islandscape to the north and west

E

is part of a Maine Coast Heritage Trust Preserve. The beach is a crossroads, offering access to miles of trails. From the crest of the strand, West Cove frames a lonely seascape stretching away to the pale loom of Isle Au Haut. Scanning the anchorage, our boat always seems smaller and farther from shore than it did when we dropped the hook. On clear nights the stars are stunning and we’re wary. A wind shift, north through east and south could be trouble. Eastern Cove is always in your face. The saw-toothed profile of the south shore is softened by grassy hummocks that beg exploration. Meadows roll like swells, the hollows dark and damp, the high ground carpeted with wildflowers and grassy knolls that on sunny days invite you to recline in their warmth, watch eagles soar or listen to the wild chorale of birds, insect kind and surf on the weather shore. A trail describes the bold shore of Rich’s Head. The mountains of Mount Desert rise theatrically above avenues of granite at Yellow Head. Plovers gather fretfully. This is admittedly the barest of summaries, but after many visits it still seems I know too little of it and must return once again. David Buckman is a starving writer. His book, “Bucking the Tide,” about discovering the wild New England coast in a $400, yacht is available at www.eastworkspublications.com

T he Gu l f o f Maine fish ing repor ts

North: Warmer temps draw stripers, cod, pollock By Craig Bergeron For Points East Surfcasters are still enjoying the use of artificial lures for stripers. Jointed Bomber seven-inch and wood plugs at the dam in Saco are still a favorite. Rubber shad caught another 40-plus fish at the dam in Saco, Maine. Don’t forget Sluggos or Shankas and weighted jig head Whip-it Eels. All of these have proven themselves and are worth trying. The Marsh in Scarborough and its sandy bottom has been jammed with fisherman on the outgoing tide. The Camp Ellis boat launch on an outgoing tide has a great sandy bottom on which to rest a seaworm. It makes it easier for the stripers to find if you lay the seaworm on a sandy bottom rather than rocky seaweed. John Shae reports he changed his fishing

Jeff Desrocher caught this 25pound, 42-inch striper on June 4 off the shores of southern Maine.

habits at Parsons Beach using clams and a splash of Bio Edge scent; apparently his buddy had outfished him earlier using the same ploy. The offshore surface-water temperatures at Wood Island were reported at between 54 and 56 degrees in early June. Boats filled up the ledges at Tantas and Jeffreys. Talk on the radio was light, and some commented on the 19- and 20-foot ski boats that made the trip out on the foot or less seas. We fished in depths of 170 to 350 feet and had a tough time with the current. We managed to land a couple of haddock cod and some big pollock. The numbers were not high, but with three kids on the boat, and the whales everywhere you looked, it was a perfect day to be on the water. Steve Carlton fished a rainbow Butterfly Jig and red teaser with no bait, which landed him the largest cod of the day at 34 inches. The rest of us fished with clams and a Lav Jig or Cod Bomb and did fairly well. Like I said, with three kids, a ripping current, Power Pro line getting tangled, and watching whales, we had our hands full, all of that still makes for a perfect day.

Joe Filipkowski landed this 15.lpound summer flounder fishing in shallow water off Moonstone Beach in southern Rhode Island.

shore fishing. The south shore, Narragansett Bay and Block Island provide great fluke, scup, seabass, striped bass and blue fishing. First Beach, Newport, Carpenters to Green Hill on Rhode Island’s south shore, and Clay Head, Block Island, are great locations to fish for that doormat fluke. Joe Filipkowski landed a 15.l-pound summer flounder fishing in shallow water off Moonstone Beach. Al Conti, my dad, landed an 11.3-pounder fishing right off Matunuck in 20 to 25 feet of water. A small bucktail with a strip of squid and silverside is his secret. Remember, fish will move deep as water temperatures increase, and big fish hang together so if you have caught one

big fish return to that same spot and try again. The scup and seabass fishing are in full swing with water temps finally increasing. Outside the Center Wall of the Harbor of Refuge, rocky bottom areas off Nebraska Shoals, Matunuck, and Green Hill are all prime locations to hit for these species. Smaller hooks and strip of squid or sandworm work best. This is a great fishery for little children because it produces the great action to keeps them occupied. The striped bass and bluefish action is in full swing around the Point Judith Lighthouse, Charlestown and Green Hill, along with North Rip, the Southeast Corner, and Southwest Ledge of Block

Island. Peter Vican and Don Smith landed 38- and 31-pound stripers, respectively, in early June fishing live eels during the night on the south side of Block Island, bigger fish will be more plentiful come July. Mako, blue and thresher shark fishing is in full swing in the Gully, the Suffix and the Mud Hole. It is extremely important to keep a consistent chum slick to attract these predators to your boat. Schoolie bluefin tuna make an appearance in the Mud Hole, Fairway Buoy and Acid Barge in July. Trolling for these tuna works best with the smallest trolling lure you can use. These areas are no more than 15 miles from Point Judith and can make for an economical tuna-fishing day. Try for yellowfin

tuna in the areas around The Dump or in the shipping lanes. This early in the season, trolling works best; as fish settle in, anglers can begin chunking. Canyon fishing could possibly give anglers the best odds, fishing the Fish Tales, Hudson and the Dip. Unfortunately, it is hard to tell right now; check with your local tackle shop for up to date reports. Elisa Jackman, a Point Judith Pond native, has managed the tackle shop at Wakefield, R.I.’s Snug Harbor Marina (www.snugharbormarina.com) for over 16 years and has spent her life fishing the waters of Block Island Sound.

a total family endeavor, commitment and passion. Located on picturesque Potts Harbor at the tip of Harpswell, Maine, the Dolphin Marina & Restaurant has been a favorite destination for locals, boaters and inlanders since it opened in 1966. Owned and operated by Bill and Mimi Saxton, the restaurant is famous for traditional Maine comfort food; featuring local, fresh ingredients including wildly popular fish chowder, lobster stew and blueberry muffins. Recently, this Maine jewel has completed a major refit of the facility, with all new marina infrastructures, including new wave attenuation floats, boat slips, wharf, piles, moorings, composite pump-out float available 24 hrs free of charge, new fuel system offering ValvTect Marine Fuel and new restaurant. As a certified Maine Clean Marina it’s a premier destination for yacht clubs, transient and seasonal boaters offering: ice, water, provisions, deck and patio, slips and moorings, complete dock service, WiFi and 30A, 50A and 100A shore power. The Marina also provides a crane, repairs, boat storage, winterization, shrink wrap, boat transport and boat hauling. The picturesque 7-acre property offers guests green space for recreation or lobster-bakes and ferry service to Eagle Island State Park and Museum. Surrounded by stunning views of Casco Bay, the new restaurant includes a private dining room and tavern for special gatherings. For a bit of shoreleave, it’s a pleasant walk to Basin Point Preserve. The Saxton Family’s outlook is summarized by Mimi Saxton, “It is a total family endeavor, commitment and passion. A common thread of pride, honor and community are deep values our family shares. We remain true to our heritage; honoring those before us while being good tenants of the land and protecting it for those that come after us.”

LAST

WORD/Roger

Lo ng

Down the rabbit hole y the time you are reading this, Strider, should be well into her last cruise, which I hope and expect will last a decade or more. I’ve sold my business and intend to never shrinkwrap the boat again. I plan to spend a good deal of time in Canada during the next few years. Newfoundland beckons after I’ve explored the coast of Nova Scotia as thoroughly as I have Maine. This plan led me to a fall through the rabbit hole into an “Alice in Wonderland” world developing under our feet in regard to boater licensing and qualifications. Canada now requires that all boat operators carry “Proof of Competency” in the form of a Pleasure Craft Operators Card (PCOC) professional maritime license, or other item on a list of equivalents. The law applies to nonresidents after the vessel has been in Canadian waters for more than 45 consecutive days. I sure hope that will apply to me. A state-issued card that allows a U.S. citizen to operate in his home state will be accepted by Canada in lieu of the PCOC. So if you are from Connecticut, or one of the many other states that are now essentially licensing boaters, you’re covered. Maine, however, has no licensing scheme and does not issue such cards. I could have taken a U.S. Power Squadron course, but I decided, since I primarily needed the card for Canada, that it would be nice to have one of theirs. Obtaining the card was fairly straightforward since it can be done online and Canada will issue them to nonresidents. I sent an email with a few questions to each of the several Web outfits that provide the online course and exam. Only two responded to my emails, and only one actually answered my questions. Good customer service gets my business, so I sent off about fifty bucks to BoaterExam.com. Canada requires that you spent three hours taking the online course. Each page is read aloud as the page is displayed, but you can push a button to silence the reader. A timer counts down, however, and you can’t continue until it reaches zero. A little experimentation confirmed that the countdown is tied to the voice. You don’t save any time by turning it off. There is a multiple-choice quiz after each section. Most questions are in the usual multiple-choice format, sort of along the lines of: If someone falls overboard, you should: Throw them the anchor. Stop and throw them a life ring. Fire off a flare and wave to attract help. They say that you can always learn, no matter how ex-

B

perienced you are, and it’s true. Who knew that cable ferries sometimes tow other vessels and you should avoid passing between them and their tow? After I finished the last quiz, I clicked to continue and got a message saying, “You are fast. Too fast. Transport Canada requires that you spend three hours on the test and you have only spent 2 hours 35 minutes. Please go back and review until you have spent the required time.” I went back and reviewed such items as the fact that a regulation fire bucket must have a round bottom (so it can’t stand up) with a small hole that will prevent it from being used for any other purpose, such as washing socks. I was surprised to read, “If you are the owner or operator of a vessel less than 100 tons, you are not required to have the charts, documents and publications onboard as long as you have sufficient knowledge of: * The location and character of charted shipping routes, lights, buoys and marks, and hazards; and * The prevailing conditions, taking into account such factors as tides, currents, ice and weather patterns.” I had always heard that Canada required a complete set of the largest scale paper charts for the waters being navigated in regardless of what electronic charts might be on board. Evidently this is urban legend. Finally, the timer clicked down to zero, and I clicked the button to be transferred to the Transport Canada website where I would take my final exam. The system was down and remained so for several days. I took the exam when it came back online and was able to print off a temporary PCOC card, good for 90 days, immediately. My permanent card, much nicer and more impressive than the one the FAA gave me when I became a private pilot, arrived a couple weeks later.

Down the Canadian rabbit hole Now, about that rabbit hole. There was a horrible incident a few years ago in California in which a sailboat sitting becalmed at night on a lake while the occupants drank beer and watched the stars was run over by a powerboat killing the sailboat owner’s wife. The powerboat was owned by a deputy sheriff, and in a horrible miscarriage of justice, the police chose to charge the guest sitting in the helmsman’s position with manslaughter on the basis that he was the operator of the vessel and therefore responsible for the sailboat’s lights being off. He lost his job, his retirement, and hundreds of thousands of dollars, although he was found innocent because the prosecutors couldn’t prove the lights were off.

LAST WORD, continued from Page 93 The concept of the guest being the “operator,” and thus responsible for the lights, was never challenged. It became a legal precedent that the overall responsibility of the owner or master, a core principle of maritime law and tradition, changes with seating position. Those of us who know and respect the traditions of the sea can feel ourselves falling down a long, dark tunnel. Some of the wording in the online course made me suspect that Canada is taking this same position, so I wrote Transport Canada to ask if they consider the operator to always be the person steering the boat. They responded that, yes, any person who touches the wheel while the boat is under way must have a PCOC card or equivalent. I wrote back that I have an autopilot that I frequently use to maintain course while I attend to navigation duties or sail handling. If I have a guest perform the same function under my direct supervision as the electronic gizmo, do they then become the “operator?” Are they required to have proof of competency after day 44? Transport Canada responded that, yes, any person who touches the wheel while the boat is under way must have a PCOC card or equivalent. I figured that made it clear enough and there was no point pursuing it further. If you take your U.S.-registered boat to Canada, you may operate without any proof of competency for up to 45 days. You could buy a boat in Eastport, and your very first outing on the water could be a 44-day cruise in Canada. Anyone may steer the boat, although children must be supervised by an adult. Let’s say you have your PCOC card or other proof of competency and are joined on Day 43 of your Canadian cruise by Bob and Louise, Bob’s new girlfriend. Louise is from Iowa and has never been on a boat of any kind in her life before. Bob has spent 40 years sailing the coast of Maine but never acquired a license or U.S. operator card. On that first day, everyone can steer the boat. You could even let Louise take the deck at night and steer through the Bay of Fundy shipping lanes while you and Bob sleep below. When you wake the next morning, however, only you may touch the wheel or steer the boat. Bob may fix a position, plot a course, handle sails, and read the radar to guide you through traffic in the fog — all things most of us would consider part of “operating,” but he may not steer. You can let the autopilot steer, but if a course change is required, Bob needs to call you up on deck to turn the wheel after the autopilot is turned off. I’d worn out the Canadian’s patience before I could get around to asking if pressing the buttons on the autopilot constitutes steering.

Alice in Connecticutland Now I don’t want to appear to be picking on our friends north of the border. It gets even weirder in our own backyard. I contacted Connecticut boating officials about the operator concept and got much the same answers. I also 96 Points East July 2011

wore out their patience. One person admitted that their laws led to some weird situations and I was on the “right track.” He then turned me over to someone in media relations who never returned my emails. Anyway, here’s what it appears Alice would find in Connecticut. You are a Connecticut resident sailing your properly registered boat. Bob and Louise have come down from their Canadian adventure to join you for a few days along with your neighbor Jack, who you are taking for his first boat ride. Who may steer? You can steer because you have the Connecticut operator card. Jack may not steer because he is a resident of Connecticut. Louise may steer because she is not a resident of the state. Bob may not steer. What? Why? It turns out that Bob bought a small lot at the end of a country road up in the northwest corner of Connecticut planning to build a retirement cottage there. Because he owns real estate in Connecticut, he is covered by the operator requirements. The weather gets bad and you are delayed in port. Jack has been sick and has had enough. You have to go back to work, so Bob, who is competent to do so, offers to return the boat to the mooring while you go home on the train. No problem — except that he can’t steer. Louise can do all the steering though so everything works out. Bob just has to keep telling her which way to turn the wheel, “The other way . . . No, the other other way.” The ancient tradition of the sea and, to me, one of the most honorable aspects of maritime culture is going the way of so many other things in our world. The concept of the ultimate responsibility of one, and only one, person aboard a vessel for everything that happens is being chipped away by well-meaning laws written around the model of automotive traffic. There are some serious implications in this shift in the legal landscape. If Bob makes a navigational or crossing situation mistake on the trip back to the mooring, Louise could well be the one held at fault because she was “operating.” Bob may be willing to take full responsibility for his mistake, but the lawyer for the owner of the boat they hit could learn that Louise is heir to an Iowa ethanol fortune and decide to make her responsible because her pockets are deeper. If you let guests steer, you now need to take this change in the legal climate into consideration. It is becoming increasingly necessary that both boat owners and guests understand that sitting in the helmsman seat with your hands on the wheel may expose you to significant legal liabilities that were never part of marine tradition or law until just a few years ago.

First released in late summer 2003, Hurricane Rum was introduced during the Hurricane season.This was done in honor of the awesome storms that cause havoc from the Keys to Nantucket. Our rum is slightly over-proofed to match the strength of nature's fury.

It is aged in bourbon casks imparting a wonderful golden color and distinctive whiskey flavor. Hurricane Rum is truly small batch and difficult to find. Ask for it wherever you buy spirits, and please enjoy with friends in moderation.
