Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I was in the middle of checking images of every yacht club on the list of America's oldest. I might have missed something but I wasn't even sure it was in New England Stroke of luck that I checked again and I saw your last clue and that saved me a bit of time as I just started looking at MA yacht clubs.

I was going to say Onset.
It does look familiar.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well...... as the yacht club wasn't in the first picture... what I was really looking for was Duxbury Bay Oh! alright then!

Duxbury, originally know by the Pilgrims as Duxborough and begrudgingly know as Delux-bury by those who, like me, who can't afford to live there.

BTW, there's not much there for a cruising sailor so consider turning left as you enter the bay and go to Plymouth instead.

Edit: I guess I should have qualified that with "if you want to do more than just hang out on your boat in a beautiful place" consider turning left as you enter the bay and go to Plymouth instead.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I thought of Duxbury and checked it over too quickly--didn't zoom in enough. The cue for me was the rowing operation next door. There aren't too many places that would be suitable for rowing, accessible to open water, and have a yacht club next door. The shallow water was also a clue, particularly with the number of smaller power boats in evidence.

I was on my way back to recheck Duxbury when Rob nailed it. Oh, well. More power to Rob!

BTW, if you've checked the charts for this area, there aren't too many sailors taking a right turn as they come into the bay.

Picky, picky picky As you enter from Plymouth Bay, turn left instead of bearing right to Duxbury Bay. No statements by the author are intended for, or to be used for navigation and the author accepts no responsibility for you going aground.
