Check out the summer cruise schedule under Club Cruises. Kevin and Frederique O’Keeffe are coordinating our summer cruise — watch for emails from them, or simply send them your ideas. I’ve also started a new feature under Club Cruises, called “Favorite Harbors” — write up a description of your favorite harbor, send it to me, and I’ll post it!
Thinking of pulling into Lincolnville? Do it!
We easily picked up a mooring and went ashore for a nice lunch at McLaughlin’s. There is ample dinghy tie-up at the dock adjoining the ferry terminal. The mooring field shallows rapidly from 60 to 15 feet; best to grab the big yellow mooring that says, “be our guest.” Information in the “Cruising Guide” is a little outdated.
Some new fees are in place at the park. Campsites are $14, Firewood $5 and moorings are $20; all payable on the honor system. There is a canister on the shore-end of the gangway.

LADIES, LADIES, LADIES…
What do you do in command of your vessel under sail when your partner is suddenly indisposed?
If you are a woman that knows, then please come share your knowledge with other ladies who do not know or have doubts as to their ability to respond effectively to such a situation. Ignorance and a lack of confidence are huge barriers to bringing a vessel home safely in adverse conditions of any sort.
July 18 & 19 have been offered as dates for a “Ladies’ Cruise.” Traditionally this has been a great opportunity for women to get out together and share some fun and learn sea(wo)manship from eachother without macho do-it-all-myself guys around. Past participants have come away with nothing but enthusiastic praise for their experience.
Past leaders include Elaine Dresser and Molly Mulhern. This year we need a leader for this event as well as a couple of boats. When I let my mind take up the muse names pop up like Moira, Jody, Barbara A., Marcia, Sarah, MJ, Karen, and Patti. It would be great if a couple of these women would grab the reins and do the “giddy-up” on this. I will be available to assist in the planning and publicity in any way I can.
As in the past we will lend INTUITO to the effort and Melissa will likely be a participant. Melissa has asked me not to volunteer her as the leader as she has some other demands on her time for the period leading up to that weekend and a trip to Ireland beginning the 20th. The commitment of one more boat for a classroom/berthing would be fantastic.
Please contact me with suggestions. The July newsletter will be coming out soon and it would be great to have an outline for the Ladies’ Cruise published there. I will start calling people and suggesting assignments if I don’t get some response to this pitch.
I’d rather be sailing….Jim Easton–INTUITO
