My name is Nick, and I'm a young sailor (mid-20's) that grew up sailing around the famed Brooklin, ME. For those of you who are wooden boat enthusiasts, you'll know this town as the home of Woodenboat Magazine. We also have quite a few boatyards in town, the most famous of which being Brooklin Boat Yard; the yard where designer Joel White made many of his ideas a reality.
Brooklin is a wonderful and beautiful town... and I'm the guy that owns the ugly plastic boat. I have a Sabre 28 named Eigyr that I am thoroughly in love with. Perhaps there is another boat in my future, but she gets the job done for now. I have learned a lot owning Eigyr, and compared to other Sabre 28's I have seen, she is very much at the head of her class.
If there are any other Sabre 28 owners out there and you have any questions, I probably have some sort of insight.
Also, if there are any cruisers looking to make their way to Eggemoggin Reach or Brooklin, drop a line. I am a member of the Center Harbor Yacht Club, spent a few years working at the Woodenboat School, and have crewed on a windjammer in the area, so I have a good amount of information for the transient mariner.
This summer I will be working down in Cape Cod, so I might not be in Brooklin as much as usual. I will however have my little Beetle Cat down there, so all is not lost.
I hope everybody has a great sailing season, be well!
