Ne Plus Ultra

06 August 2013 | Somesville, Mt. Desert
Somesville. A Hinckley Bermuda 40 in the glow of the sunset. Name is Ne Plus Ultra. That about sums it up for the moment.

Still Life

04 August 2013 | Eggemoggin Reach
Flat calm
After a few minutes of a downwind start with all the chutes up, the wind went flat. With sails hanging like bedsheets, everyone spent an hour just being carried out by the ebb tide until the afternoon sea breeze filled in.

Scurrying about

03 August 2013 | Benjamin River
Foggy, rainy
We sailed through the Eggemoggin Reach to the Benjamin River to be close to the start of the race today. All the owners of the local classic wood boats were busy prepping their boats. This boat was (re) launched for the first time yesterday. As I was chatting with the fellas from the local boatyard who just finished rebuilding this 1925 beauty, they said in jest "if it wasn't for the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta, we never finish anything." Yes, always time for one more coat of perfect varnish.

Moon and stars

02 August 2013 | Castine
This was hull #1 of the Concordias

Some sweet....

01 August 2013 | Castine
My oh my. Some two dozen of the most beautiful wood boats ever built, the Concordias, assembled in Castine for the beginning of three days of classic yacht racing. The rules say you must tow a dinghy and "protests will not be heard." My kind of racing.


20 July 2013 | Pulpit Harbor
The big cold front sweeping away the heat wave brought some impressive thunderstorms which passed on either side of us. The sky cleared. Rainbows all around. Yet another stunning sunset over the blue hills of Camden.
