Cap'n Pat Daniels arranged for the fine boaty folks of the Sebago Canoe Club to host us for an evening potluck and a lecture on the Cheasepeake Deadrise class of workboats. What great fun that was! The club has been constructing their own Deadrise powerboat as a race committee boat for their dinghy racing series (and for overall good works in Jamaica Bay).
This year we pressed hard to break the world record for most Goat Island Skiffs assembled (herded?) in one place. It was a close call due to the weather, but Brian Carney pulled up just in time to push us over edge with four--yes, four--GISes. Huzzah!
Stiff breezes on Saturday gave way to lazy bobbing around on Sunday. We attempted to mix it up with Sebago's Laser fleet as they raced for series points. Sadly, the whisper of wind that brought us to the course didn't last and we all floated there staring at each other. The RC called off the contest and we let the tide bring us back to Floyd. A good time was had by all.
