Keeping Passion for Sailing Afloat by Cara Godlesky From the first groups of Native Americans who paddled Nantucket’s shores to the tall masts of whaling ships, sailing has always been a part of the nautical history of the island. Nantucket, surrounded by blue waters and a perpetual ocean breeze, is now home to an avid group of experienced and novice sailors. Nantucket Community Sailing, an educational non-profit, is helping those island sailors carry out their hobbies by providing the public access to sailing and water sports. Nantucket Community Sailing (NCS) offers a wide range of group and private sailing programs, from their “Guppies” program that introduces 5- and 6-year-olds to sailing to their Keelboat Race for experienced 13- to 18-yearolds that includes a long sail day to Martha’s Vineyard. NCS also offers boat and watersport rentals and sponsors the Nantucket High School sailing team. After 22 years and counting, NCS supports the maritime pastime of sailing in our community. NCS is an accredited sailing program through United States Sailing Association, which only recognizes the top national sailing centers for their highest levels of boating education, detailed emergency and safety procedures, and curricula that meets the association’s teaching standards. NCS is one of the 33 accredited sailing programs in the country. The association also awarded NCS as the top community sailing program in the country a few years ago. “[NCS’s] first goal is to provide affordable access to the water for the community,” said Diana Brown, chief executive officer of NCS. “The second is to provide a variety of programs that serve everybody. We serve children starting at the age of 5 all the way to our oldest sailor at 95…The third goal…we put

The spiritual, the yoga inclined, and the fashionable all love Clay Twombly’s mala inspired jewelry. When you enter Clay’s store, the soothing colors and energy emanating from spherical beads and natural shaped stones immediately calms you. The beautiful colors range from earth tones to soft pinks and brilliant blues to gleaming blacks. Many of Clay’s pieces are traditional mala styled necklaces— long beaded necklaces with a knot between each bead. As he tells me about the various stones he uses and their properties, his hands fly in front of him with a life of their own as he knots and beads a mini sandalwood mala seemingly without thinking. Clay has a great deal more to offer than malas alone. As you peruse Clay’s store, you will see delicate necklaces of miniscule glass beads, organic shaped rings, and bracelets that wrap around your wrist multiple times. Clay has expanded creatively and taken classes in lost-wax casting. He shares with me a mold in progress of a succulent shaped ring that is sure to be a masterpiece when completed.

Yesterday’s Island/Today’s Nantucket

Fandango by Robert P. Barsanti My son has spent much of his summer elbow deep in mayonnaise, mustard, and meatballs. He has been apprenticed into the family trade down at Henry’s Jr. and has been feeding the working people of Nantucket one sandwich at a time. He has learned the special proprietary code of the order slip. He has figured out how many Nectars he can put in one sandwich bag. And he has mastered how to listen to a customer who expected meatball with extra provolone, but who received a veggie on a gluten free wrap. One afternoon last week, just after the lunch rush, an older man (a college dean) came to the counter. “I used to work for your grandparents. I had about as much fun as you’re having.� The Hope for the Future, smeared in condiments and sweat, smiled politely at the comment, but nodded. The dean left a big tip. After work, we went out to the beaches behind Bartlett’s. People spend millions of dollars for houses out here for a good reason. And that good reason was touched by flecks of cloud in a bowl of Carolina blue. It rolled into the shore, climbed up on a sandbar, and then tumbled up to the beach. The afternoon rang slowly in the pebbles of the receding waves. We came to the beach at around three-thirty. The early birds had had enough sun by then, and had left either for Cisco Brewers or a warm shower. The rest of the families were measuring the time they had left and imagining a swordfish steak on the grill. The ocean water had not warmed enough for the Florida millionaires to feel comfortable, but for the rest of us, it washed away the grit, grime, and mayo of a long day. A chill caught your breath in the first few seconds, then your skin adjusted and everything settled in fine. Twenty yards off shore, the Atlantic had graced us with the first sandbar of July. The tide swirled over it, but you could body surf in to the shore. As we rode the waves, the families drifted off the beach until the aftercontinued on page 15

The Down Low on What’s Up with Ticks Ticks have become a fact of life for islanders and visitors. Once an uncommon occurrence, deer (or black-legged) ticks that carry Lyme’s disease are now found in more than half the counties in the United States (according to a 2016 federal tick count). Recently, the news is full of stories about new diseases and new ticks. And while there have been some sensational stories about 2017 being an extremely bad tick year, researchers have said that tick prevalence is difficult to predict as it’s based on multiple factors of temperature and humidity. Let’s go through what we already know, what we should be on the lookout for, what we as individuals can do for tick prevention, and even how we can contribute to tick science. Lyme Disease. Lyme disease is caused by an infection with a spirochete (a type of bacteria) which can be transmitted to people by bites from nymphal and adult deer ticks. Many of the symptoms of early Lyme’s mimic flu-like symptoms. Other tick-borne diseases passed on through ticks include human Babesiosis and Ehrlichiosis. Symptoms are similar for all three infections, but treatments differ. When going to the doctor with a tick bite, they will generally test for all possible tick-borne diseases, but make sure with your doctor. Powassan Virus. This tick-borne illness has been in the news a lot this summer despite its rarity. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website, approximately 75 cases of Powassan virus disease were reported in the United States over the past 10 years and there were only 8 reports on Massachusetts up until 2015. Recently, Dr. Catherine Brown, deputy state epidemiologist, confirmed that there have been three deaths in Massachusetts due to the Powassan virus, but was vague on the timing of these deaths.

No Need to Lug Your Luggage

Tired of lugging your luggage around the island after an 11 am checkout? Have you done a little too much shopping to be able to carry your bags? This summer Nantucket has a new bag and luggage check service available in town. Island visitors, who need a place to store their suitcases while they wait for their boat or store purchases from downtown shopping while they explore the island, are already taking advantage of the service. The service is being run by Valet Park of America at the parking lot located at 5 Candle Street. Conveniently located right next to The Wave bus terminal, folks can store their bags and jump on a bus to explore the island. The operating hours of the service are from 8 am to midnight, 7 days a week until Labor Day. After the September 11 attacks, storage lockers were removed for security purposes from both the Steamship Authority and the Hy-Line Cruise terminal areas. While necessary, this removal left a void that has not been adequately filled until now. Tim Graney, Valet Park of America’s Vice President of Operations, says “Anything we can do to help make people’s visit to the island a more enjoyable one is good for everyone. The service gives people making a day trip to the island the ability to enjoy some shopping in the morning, and still spend -=#8 ; WN ; =J ; 8 ; f 1WN#`  ; SJW8/N"=a ; the rest of the day at the beach or dine out at local restaurants without having to carry their bags around with them.

Limerick Challenge Your Turn To Be Funny This series of four limericks first appeared in a June 14, 1924 edition of a Nantucket newspaper. It all began when the Princeton Tiger revived the then well-known limerick printed first below and the Chicago Tribune answered with the second limerick. The New York Exchange went one step further with the third rhyme, and the Pawtucket Times took over from there. Thirty ago, Yesterday’s Island began to encourage readers to continue the saga. Because of reader requests, we again issue the challenge to our readers to write their own ”chapters.“ (Only rhymes in the form of limericks will be accepted. Limericks should have five lines that follow the rhythm in the examples below.) Send the limericks to us at P.O. Box 626, Nantucket, MA 02554, or email them to us at yi@nantucket.net. We’ll publish them online and in print, and you reward is fame and glory. There once was a man from Nantucket, Who kept all of his cash in a bucket, But his daughter, named Nan, Ran away with a man, And as for the bucket, Nantucket. —Princeton Tiger But he followed the pair to Pawtucket, The man and the girl with the bucket; And he said to the man, He was welcome to Nan, But as for the bucket, Pawtucket.

Down to the Sea in Ships The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) is pleased to announce the return of the silent film Down to the Sea in Ships (1922), with live piano accompaniment by Grammy Award-nominated pianist Jennifer Maxwell at the Whaling Museum, 13 Broad Street, on Wednesday, July 19 at 7 pm. This one-night only performance will allow audiences to hear a new interpretation of the film’s original score, arranged by Maxwell herself. Using musical archives from the New Bedford Whaling Museum, Maxwell incorporated certain pieces that were played during the film’s initial release in 1922, along with original music from William Perry, who later composed another score for the film in the 1970s. Down to the Sea in Ships is a story of forbidden love and open-water adventure. The film is set in a Quaker whaling community, where the young and eligible Patience Morgan is courted by rising businessman Samuel Siggs, continued on page 14

While Guyana is located in South America, just east of Venezuela and Brazil to the south, it is culturally connected to the Caribbean region. Aptly named Demerara Distillers Ltd. has a strong reputation for outstanding quality and consistent production being the largest supplier of bulk Caribbean rum to Europe and North America. The El Dorando brand made of Demerara rum is made from a blend of aged stocks on reserves with the youngest being no less than three years old. The rum is aged exclusively in American oak (read: used bourbon barrels) for a minimum of three years. It is then double filtered through natural charcoal to produce a clear, sparkling clean rum. While this may have the appearance of your average white rum, the tastes and aromas of this fine product are sure to exceed all expectations. Notes of coconut, vanilla, and citrus combine to create a harmonious balance of a well-crafted entry-level rum with a round, continued on page 28

despite the fact that her heart belongs to Allan Dexter, her childhood playmate-turned-whaler. The film also features an early performance from silent film star Clara Bow, in only her second film appearance of her career. “We are thrilled to welcome Jennifer Maxwell back to the Whaling Museum,” says Brianne Roth, NHA Public Programs Coordinator. “Thanks to the New Bedford Whaling Museum and composer William Perry, Jennifer has been able to create a unique score for this silent film that is a nod to all the scores that came before, but were never written down. We are pleased to be able to offer this one-of-a-kind live musical event.” Directed by Elmer Clifton and produced by the Whaling Film Corporation, this film features real live-action whaling sequences shot in New Bedford and on the Atlantic Ocean. The world premiere of the film was held at New Bedford’s Olympia Theater on September 25, 1922, with subsequent showings in most major American cities as well as in numerous foreign countries. In 1940, a year before the corporation liquidated its stock, Twentieth Century-Fox purchased the film rights to Down to the Sea in Ships and remade it into a talking picture in 1949. Dr. Jennifer A. Maxwell holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Boston University. She received a Master of Music degree from the University of Louisville on full fellowship as a student of Artist-in-Residence Lee Luvisi and a Bachelor of Music degree with honors and highest distinction on full scholarship from the University of Iowa. She has also trained at the Brandywine Piano Institute in West Chester, PA, and the Chautauqua Institute in Chautauqua, NY. A committed educator, she has maintained a private teaching studio throughout her career, working with pianists of all ages and levels. She spends half of her time on Nantucket, where she is a faculty member at the Nantucket Music Center (NMC). Tickets are free for NHA members and $10 per person for the general public.

Yesterday’s Island/Today’s Nantucket

Fandango from page 5

noon revealed the group that we had settled next to. Thirty teenagers, just out of St. Alban’s School, lay out on towels. Time let them play and be golden. When I am exposed to that much youth, the old man inside starts muttering. The young men were shirtless, fully tanned, and muscled; they sported sunglasses worth more than my first car; they wore board shorts that extended down to the middle of their kneecaps. They did not have work shirts or farmer’s tans. The young women wore bikinis where the tops had the modesty of jog bras, but the bottoms were more Brazilian than basic. Their sunscreen routine had yet to keep up with their fashion sense; three of them had sunburns that would provide a difficult ride home to Dad’s compound. Yet, for all of the bright and shiny privilege wrapped around them, they were remarkably well behaved. No beer, no wine, no warm and spicy herbal scents; no Frisbee heroes flying over the sand and cheerleaders to urge them on. They played music, but not loud and not boorish—they even asked if it was too loud for us. All in all, they celebrated an envious good time of sunburned privilege. I was not so well behaved. My memory remains fresh enough to shame me. Years ago, when time washed warm around me as well, I brought my Muse bouncers to the beach on Sunday with a keg and four speakers in the back of a pick up truck. When I was young and foolish, I was young and foolish. I grabbed my privilege and danced the fandango. I didn’t ask anyone if my music was too loud, I made sure it was. So there is hope for the future.

July 13-19, 2017

These graduates are young and green. They believe that their dreams are rights; they know exactly who they are, exactly where they are going, and how much it is going to cost. This perfect day, this wonderful sandbar, these playful and gentle waves were not the gift of sheer meteorological luck, but a divine signal. My son, prince of the cold cuts and condiments, probably felt it too. It isn’t so much a privilege of money (although who else can host thirty high school graduates in July on Nantucket?) but a privilege of youth. Age grinds away privilege, even for St. Alban’s grads. The tides of change shift for all of us, the sand bar disappears below you, and the waves turn cold, then gray, then brown. Fear of the sea is the beginning of wisdom. I don’t want my son to be forever young. Instead, he should know unfairness, so he can appreciate justice when it arrives. He should suffer betrayal, so he will be loyal past when loyalty is expected. He should be lonely so that he can be good company. But, a father wishes for this to come gently. Let the sea grow cold slowly. After riding the waves, we settled into our chairs and let the sun slip and the pale moon rise in the lavender evening. He was deep into his summer reading, and I was ripping through something foolish while the beach emptied. The fishing trawlers deep off-shore winked red and green. Two seals swam by us, headed east for stripers and blues. When he looked up and saw the evening, we closed the chairs and walked back up to the parking lot. The young graduates remained on the sand. In the early evening, when the visitors are elsewhere and the line is short, we stopped for Watermelon Creams at the Juice Bar. I was happy to see he, also, left a big tip.

Clay Twombly from page 4

lost-wax casting technique, Clay has designed and created beautiful necklaces that feature a Nantucket pendant in gold or silver alongside the exquisite mala beads. Clay began beading five years ago without the express intention of selling his work. However, it became clear after many inquiries about his designs that it made perfect sense to open a store. Clay explains that he designs intuitively, having come to know the stones through his experience with them. Through trial and error he discovered what beads go well together and what cords make sense for certain designs. Clay compares stones to vegetables. You may need green vegetables for one reason and purple for another: likewise, stones hold different energies for different ends. Some of Clayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jewelry incorporates pendants made by fellow Nantucket artists Jessica Hicks, Melissa Dudley, and Megan Anderson. Other pieces feature special additions such as vintage Japanese glass beads and baroque pearls. When asked what pieces are most popular, Clay is quick to point to two beautiful collections in different hues of blue. The first is the amazonite collection which features aqua colored beads. Amazonite is known as the peace stone and it has soothing and calming qualities in addition to inspiring courage. Also popular is his Blue Chalcedony Collection which uses light greyish-blue colored stones. Blue chalcedony is known as the speaker stone and is associated with balancing and grounding the wearer. Clayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steps Beach necklace is an incredible work of art. He was inspired by the vista at Steps Beach where you take in sea, sand, and grass all at once. The necklace is a features these three natural colors fading into and out of each other to create a remarkable visual effect. Before finding success in beading, Clay was a full time yoga instructor in Boston, California, and Maine. He has lived on Nantucket for fourteen years and you can find him teaching at The Yoga Room on 49 Fairgrounds Road. You can admire Clayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jewelry in his shop and studio upstairs at 2 Union Street, where he has been since 2015. You can also find Clayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jewelry at Space on Old South Wharf and The Yoga Room.

Ticks from page 7

like Lyme and other tick-borne bacterial infections, Powassan is a virus for which there is no treatment except supportive care. This disease remains extremely rare and has never been found on Nantucket. For more information on Powassan check out the CDC website: cdc.gov/powassan/index.html. Lone Star Ticks. This tick species is a recent find in our region. Prevalent in the southeastern US, their distribution has been expanding with global climate change. Currently, the only known established population of lone star ticks (LST) in our area is on Sandy Neck Beach on Cape Cod. An established population consists of individuals of all life stages (adults, nymphs, and larvae). There are some suspect sites on Martha’s Vineyard that are being investigated. In 2015, after a weekend trip to Tuckernuck, I had a tick bite from a LST. It was only attached a short time, and I was able to remove it swiftly. I did, however, have the tick tested (tickreport.com). See below for more information about tick testing. Lone star ticks are known to be more aggressive than the deer and dog ticks. They actively “hunt” down a host instead of passively hoping one walks by. Lone star ticks, fortunately, don’t transmit Lyme’s, but they have their own unique set of diseases. They carry tularemia, human ehrlichiosis, and STARI (southern tick associated rash illness). The most sensational headline that gets repeated, with a hint of truth, is that the LST bite can make you allergic to red meat (anywhere from hives to anaphylactic shock). The good news, however, is that LST’s are less likely to carry pathogens than deer ticks. While there have been individuals found on Tuckernuck, there are no official reports of LST on Nantucket. However, there has been a lot of personal stories of these ticks that I have heard first-hand, so keep your eyes out. What can you do? The first step is prevention. Whether it’s for yourself or your children, wearing long pants and socks in the field is a must. Multiple tick researchers swear by permethrin-induced clothing. It is a toxic chemical, so weigh your own risks. Some people spray their clothes or shoes and socks with permethrin or Deet to reduce the risk of ticks. To me, this is a good comcontinued on page 18

promise as the chemicals are not on your skin. The next most important thing is to check yourself and others. As soon as you are done with a walk or outdoor activity, check your entire body. Getting in the shower to get ready for dinner? Check yourself. Kids bath time? Check them. Check again before bed and again the next morning. Ticks look for warm humid spots, so make sure you investigate the back of the knees, arm pits, and other unmentionable areas. Take a look at the “hot zone” diagram for where ticks like to hide on this website: tickencounter.org/ticksmart/shower_check_cards. As someone I know used to say, when you do a tick check, “if it doesn’t look obscene, you’re not doing it right.” What he meant was that you have to check EVERYWHERE, yes, everywhere, after a day on Nantucket. What if I find a tick attached? There are lots of various implements for tick removal and many of them work. I am a fan of needle-nose tweezers which you can get at any drug store. Just be sure to get the head. If you don’t get the head, go to the doctor. If it has been on you longer than 24 hours, go to the doctor. You will likely not see a bullseye, so don’t wait for one to appear. Lyme’s is treatable as are the other tick-borne diseases commonly found on Nantucket, but early detection is the key. There are also two great resources that can answer all of your tick questions and will even go the extra mile, if you are interested. The Tick Encounter Resource Center (TERC) (tickencounter.org), out of the University of Rhode Island, offers a plethora of regional tick information based in science and with important information from the CDC. Not only is it a great source of information, but you can participate! Have a tick? Take a photo and send it in. The information they gather through volunteer participation allows TERC to create maps of infestations and calculate a Tick Encounter Index. Still not satisfied? Do you need to know if that tick was a carrier for any diseases? TERC now partners with the UMass Laboratory of Medical Zoology and their tickreport.com to offer reliable tick testing at low cost and fast turnaround time. Now you can contribute to science and send the tick in for testcontinued on page 19

ing yourself! Not only will you get a report of what pathogens the tick may have been carrying, but you are contributing to important research. Tick Report was borne from the mind of Dr. Steven Rich at UMASS. As a microbiologist studying pathogens and tick-borne diseases, he heard from people who are truly concerned about the “tick epidemic” in their areas. Tapping into the concerned citizens allows Dr. Rich’s lab to collect a multitude of data while providing a service to interested people. Dr. Rich also has a history of Nantucket-based tick research. His lab has been trapping and testing small mammals around the island for ticks and then testing the ticks for various pathogens. After I found a lone star tick on me in 2015, I called Dr. Rich and sent in my tick. The results came back in a few days and all was well. My tick was negative for every possible disease. Phew. My final word of advice is to relax. There are lots of hazards in life and things to be wary of. Armed with knowledge, we can make good choices and do our best to avoid dangers such as ticks. But nowhere is perfect and free of all dangers. Remember to have a good time, stop and smell the roses, and see some of our beautiful island, ticks and all.

a lot of effort into offering scholarships and free community sailing opportunities for members of the community who might never get out on the water.” By meeting high standards and providing sailors of all ages with an opportunity to be out on the water, NCS is a benefit to a community that has a very strong relationship to the ocean around it. An island community has a love for the water, and NCS wants to further that love through their mission to engage the people of Nantucket in sailing, teaching life and leadership skills while still holding a deep respect for marine environment. On top of supplying the community with the tools to sail, NCS is aware of how essential it is to protect our waters. NCS works with an organization, Sailors of the Sea and its program, Clean Regattas, the world’s only sustainability certification for water-based events. NCS uses the Clean Regattas program to ensure their sailors have minimal effect on the environment. continued on page 26

NCS and Clean Regattas educate and promote environmentally friendly practices. Some of the ways they exercise this mission is by giving out free, reusable water bottles and providing refill stations for their students. They also educate sailors about using nontoxic bottom paint on sailboats that could potentially impair shellfish. “Sailors are a generally clean impact on the water but if you’re using toxic bottom paint on your sailboat then you’re harming the shellfish,” said Brown. “People should have the least possible impact on the environment they can.” NCS uses nontoxic paints on their boats, and have done so for 10 years. NCS sees the importance of maintaining Nantucket’s clean oceans and wants sailors they come in contact with to do the same. Sailing can create a connection with ocean that can transform into practicing cleaner methods of sailing. “[Sailors are] a group of people who are invested in Nantucket’s waters and investing in not only keeping them clean but in keeping them as special as they are,” said Brown. “We have one of the best sailing venues in the northeast of anywhere because we have such a great body of water

to sail in and we want to keep it that way.” Along with their partnership of Sailors of the Seas, NCS joined forced with many local organizations for their outreach programs. NCS collaborates with Saltmarsh Senior Center to offer Sails for Old Salts program. This free program takes senior citizens on sailing outings on their 35’ keelboats during the sunset hours. NCS works with Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket to offer another free program, Sailing Heals. This program is a therapeutic excursion that takes caregivers, patients, and their family out on the water to enjoy the island scenery. “We enjoy those relationships [with other organizations], and I think they are mutually beneficial,” said Emily Taylor, program director at NCS. “We look forward to supporting groups that we aren’t normally able to work with during other programming.” NCS also supports the youth’s community by offering scholarships and youth programs for sailors of all ages. The youth programs are offered for sailors who have never sailed before to youth who are ready for racing. “I think sailing is a really unique experience and provides students with an opportunity to engage in something that can be recreational or can be competitive and outside and active,” said Taylor. “It’s a continued on page 27

Nantucket Embraces Energy Efficiency The Nantucket Community Initiative, assisted by National Grid, educates residents about ways they can cut back on their personal power usage.

Nantucket is the fastest-growing county in Massachusetts, and its energy needs are growing with it. While the island’s current two-cable infrastructure can meet demand most of the year, the unlikely failure of a cable during the busy summer months could overstress the system. This could result in power outages and has led officials to plan for the installation of a third cable, something that National Grid and the Nantucket community would like to delay. The best way to help? Reduce Nantucket’s energy demand.

“ We’re trying to empower community members to know they can make a difference.” Kim Horyn Community Outreach Manager

National Grid is encouraging residents to schedule a no-cost energy assessment so they can take advantage of special incentives being offered to help improve the efficiency of Nantucket’s homes and businesses. More than 1,000 assessments have already been performed, and participants

have replaced more than 40,000 light bulbs with efficient LED alternatives and installed more than 700 cost-saving Wi-Fi thermostats. With National Grid’s help, residents have also installed advanced power strips, low-flow showerheads, dehumidifiers, and water heaters, often at zero cost to the customer. “We’ve seen tremendous progress thus far,” said National Grid’s Dilena Diaz. “We’d like to thank everyone who’s participated and encourage them to share their experiences with their friends and neighbors.” Last year, on August 14, Nantucket broke its own energy demand record, reaching more than 48 MW during the peak hours of 5–9 pm. That same year, National Grid assessment participants cut their utility bills by an average of $895 per home. The energy challenge confronting Nantucket is real, but big changes are possible if everyone comes together.

Call 844-615-8316 or visit ngrid.com/nantucket to sign up for a no-cost home energy assessment or to learn about other energy saving opportunities.

Yesterday’s Island/Today’s Nantucket whole new set of terminology and skills that they otherwise wouldn’t be introduced to and we can help them develop those skills if they are interested in and encourage them.” Sailing can be a lifelong activity. It is one of the few sports that is not determined by the participant’s size, physical strength, or gender. Almost anyone can participant in sailing and that is why NCS has so many different programs. NCS offers programs such as Guppies, an introduction to sailing for five and six year olds and Keelboat Race for experienced 13 to 18 year olds, which includes a long sail day to Martha’s Vineyard. For youth and adults, participating in sailing can teach much about teamwork, leadership, and challenging yourself. Learning these lifelong lessons can even be applied outside of sailing. “In a lot of ways, sailing and learning to sail mimics many of the skills they will use in the rest of their lives. It builds confidence, independence, self-reliance and self-sufficiency and I think those skills are important,” said Taylor. “We try to encourage that skill development as well as teaching

Vol. 47 No. 10 • YesterdaysIsland.com actual sailing skills so I think a lot of what we’re focusing on is helping them help themselves.” NCS gives back to the island’s youth by providing many scholarships. In 2016, NCS enrolled 1,000 children in their programs and also provided $130,000 in sailing scholarships and free community outreach programs. For some youth, getting a scholarship may be their only opportunity to sail and learn more about the waters that surround them. “Just to give them that opportunity [to sail] connects them to their island a little bit more, to the water a little bit more,” said Taylor. NCS will also continue to give back to the island by hosting their Community Day at Jetties Sailing Center. The event allows anyone from the community to come to their open house and use any of the water equipment at the center for free. For more information about NCS’s private and group sailing lessons, outreach programs and to learn how you can become a volunteer for Nantucket Community Sailing, visit nantucketcommunitysailing.org or call their office at 508-228-6600.

textured finish. Smooth and flavorful enough to be sipped on its own, this rum also brings outstanding character to the cocktail experience. The bottle itself is quite attractive as well, with a soft curve of the shoulders that leads down to a slightly flared bottom. Kirk & Sweeney 12-year...This is the perfect rum for someone who wants to graduate to a sipping rum from a mixed rum drink. This rum is aged for twelve years in American oak casks. The color is a bright mahogany. This almost toffee-colored liquid smells of butterscotch candies and sugar cane syrup. It is rich and complex in the glass with scents of vanilla, oak spices and wet tobacco, which evolve over time in the glass as you allow it to sit for a few moments. Crafted in the Dominican for a spirits company owned by the Sebastiani family, better known for their California wine company of over 100 years, Kirk and Sweeney was the name of a wooden schooner that was best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the United States during Prohibition. As for the bottle design, there is a silkscreened nautical map of the main rum smuggling route from back in the day around the entire round pot shaped decanter.

countries throughout the West Indies, it is made on the Caribbean island of Barbados: the original rum island, hence the tagline on this rum product. The rum is aged up to 15 years in once used Kentucky Bourbon barrels in order to achieve exceptional balance and smoothness, along with the richness and complexity expected from a Barbados distillery’s rum. On the nose, Bumbu offers rich, complex aromas of vanilla, soft caramel, and toasted oak. The palate has notes of cinnamon, roasted nuts, and allspice perfectly blended to achieve a mild sweetness and light, smooth finish. The bottle is a work of art on its own. It is made of ultra-heavyweight glass bottle and adorned with a tarnished metal "X" in front with a map of the Caribbean across the back. This surely marks the spot on this full-bodied, exotic rum experience. Don Papa Small Batch...Made by Bleeding Heart Rum Company, this small-batch Philippine rum was created on the fertile foothills of Mt. Kanlaon where the finest sugarcane is milled to produce sweet, rich molasses. Don Papa is inspired by and named in tribute to Papa Isio, the charismatic leader from the island of Negros in the Philippines, who was integral to the independence of the island during their revolution. Hence the colorful picture on the label is a picturesque rendition of this fearless leader and stands out from your average rum branding. The rum uses the native noble cane from Southeast Asia, which is prized for its high sugar content and soft rinds. Juices are extracted and made into rich, sweet molasses, considered Don Papa’s “black gold.” It is aged for at least seven years in two kinds of casks: ex-bourbon barrels and proprietary sanded, toasted and roasted American oak casks. This helps bring out the natural color and added complexity to produce a dark, intense and richer style rum. The rum is then charcoal-filtered before being blended to perfection by a Master Blender, similar to Scotch, which leads to the consistency of the product year to year. Light and fruity on the nose, smooth and delicate on the palate, the light amber colored rum has a long, rich-textured finish and offers flavors of vanilla, honey, and candied fruits. This fine rum is fit for neat drinking and makes for an excellent gift due to its scarcity and limited availability. As you sample each of these deliciously sweet rum offerings and being to envision your own version of The Rum Diaries, one thing is for certain… don’t forget the limes!

Of this story we hear from Nantucket, About the mysterious loss of a bucket, We are sorry for Nan, As well as the man— The cash and the bucket, Pawtucket. —Pawtucket Times There once was a man from Nantucket, Who kept all his cash in a bucket, But his daughter, named Nan, Ran away with a man, And as for the bucket, Nantucket. But traces of guilt Tainted the life that they’d built Using money they’d stole from her dad And before long she saw the man was a cad So her heart then took a new tilt. On the way back to the isle Without even the trace of a smile She prayed that her Pa would be kind And forgive her for being so blind And to fall for that awful man’s guile.

So the daughter came home to ACK With the nearly full bucket in her sack And the family let out a big cheer To welcome her home without fear She’d ever again fall off track.

Leave only footprints... Nantucket has some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world. Please respect Nantucket’s fragile environment and the beauty of our island. Clean up your litter, respect private property, and use only designated entry points. In areas where dune reclaimation is taking place, please do not cross the rope or fence barriers protecting the dunes.

BEACH SAFETY •Learn to swim. If you can’t swim an overhead stroke for at least 15 minutes you should not be in the ocean. •Never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy, and swim near a lifeguard whenever possible. •Stay out of the “surf zone” where the waves break at the shoreline. Waves are at their greatest force here, and even a small wave can lift you up and throw you headfirst into the sand. •Never run from the beach into the water and dive headfirst into the waves. Sandbars that cannot be seen from the surface may be present and/or the water may be too shallow. •Don’t jump or dive into the water from a pier or rock jetty. From a pier or jetty, water appears much deeper than it really is. What looks like 10 or 20 feet of water may only be 2 to 3 feet deep. Diving in could be fatal. The same applies for jumping headfirst into the ocean or a wave from a surfboard – don’t do it! It’s not a risk worth taking. •If you are body surfing or boogie boarding, always keep your arms out in front of you to protect your head and neck. •A rip current will pull you away from the shore, but it will not pull you under. If you’re caught in a rip current, do not swim toward the shore! Instead, swim parallel to the shore, until you’re out of the rip current. Then, swim in to shore. •Never drink alcohol or use drugs at the beach. It clouds your ability to make wise decisions, and that could be fatal! •Take direction from lifeguards at all times.
