Patti Dinse Spaulding has to WORK instead of sail the weekend of July 26. Thus she will not be able to lead the Ladies’ Cruise. Courageously, Molly Mulhern has volunteered to lead the feminine expedition. Please click on the “Ladies’ Cruise” event to get her contact info. Rally ’round Molly!
See the Nova Scotia cruise event August 3 thru August 24!

Cap’n Jim (INTUITO)
Please make space on your calendars for the upcoming Ladies’ Cruise, July 26-28, 2013. This is a great opportunity for the ladies of our families to enjoy camaraderie and get expert sailboat-wise instruction from our own Molly Mulhern and eachother. In the past the women of our club have found this event to be greatly edifying, and liberating. All experience levels are welcome and the most experienced are encouraged to come and transfer knowledge and confidence to their fellows. Let’s see how many boats full of women: wives, daughters, g’daughters, and nieces, or other we can get together for this great event.
See you back at the dock,
Jim Easton (INTUITO), Chair, RYC Cruise Comm.

The weather was pretty bad Friday night and Saturday morning. I was ready to give up on the Icebreaker Cruise. Jim Easton suggested we delay until noon when the weather was expected to improve. Well it wasn’t great, but the rain stopped, the wind let up a little and the seas settled down a little bit. Intuito and Spirits headed across to Fox Island Thoroughfare with just the jibs flying. It was kind of bumpy, but we made good time.
Seal Bay was empty and the skies cleared up by the time we got there. We had snacks aboard Intuito then went to shore for a walk. Well it was more like bushwacking, but it was interesting. After supper, Jim and Melissa came over to Spirits for dessert — strawberry shortcake.
We had a nice quiet, calm night; quite the opposite of Friday night in Rockland Harbor. Spirits got going early on Sunday to get back in time to see the Canadian Grand Prix on TV. Intuito was more patient and waited for the skies to improve and the winds to pick up.
Thanks Jim and Melissa for a successful, enjoyable cruise. We’re all looking forward to the 4th of July cruise now. We got a preview of the 4th of July on Sunday night, watching fireworks which were being sent up from Samoset.
I couldn’t get the photos to load on the RYC site, so I copied the link to the photos on my Flickr page. I hope it works. http://www.flickr.com/photos/29959549@N06/
