inthesprings Yeah, its great there in the "off season". Mahogany shoals is closing next weekend I'm advised so be sure to get your fill. The weather does sound awesome starting sunday, alas we have public hearings and such (work) tuesday and thursday, so we are keeping our fingers crossed for friday. Too bad. Woulda been fun to meet anyway.

Well I guess Summer Boost will be riding out this blow just fine then, eh Brad. Sounds like you guys had a big boat party.

So we were supposed to be sailing to Block Island today, but I guess not. Supposed to be the company trip. The boss will take his boat and I mine. Anyway, we have rescheduled to next week. Weather providing we will be leaving friday, returning probably monday. Staying at Paynes I believe. If anyone is around, or feels like going, give a holler. Just a lot of eating, imbibing and relaxing. It usually proves fun.
The weather is supposed to be nice Sunday, Monday, Tuesday.
I am going to try and go then.
I love going there in September.

Yeah it was blowing Sunday. In fact it is blowing again today (thursday).
Fall is almost here.

Bene505 Glap the trip went well.

DavidPM came and rafted up with us, along with a Hanse 47 that happened by with a big family. It was quite a party. And my 44 pound CQR held us in spite of 25+ knot winds. (Stayed up a bit doing anchor watch, and Colin from the Hanse 47 popped up on deck every 90 minutes to take a look too.)

I dove on the CQR the next day and it was filly 3 inches under the sand. The only thing I could see was the little piece of (floating) poly rope that is attached to head of the CQR. Otherwise it would have been difficult to find. The anchor was really dug in.

tweitz Glad you enjoyed it. I will have to try there some time, though its so close to the Mystic Seaport, I will probably go the rest of the way. I did do Mystic Seaport earlier this year and it was great.

inthesprings Hey guys.

So we went to Dodsons. A very nice operation I must say. And what a bunch of very expensive sailboats floating in the harbor there. Very few powerboats around relatively.

Anyway, we had a very nice sail both ways. Came through the race on the way back which was interesting. It was supposed to be slack tide, but there was still a lot of water moving around. 3' waves sprang up too when it was otherwise less than a 1'. Good times.

Thanks for the help guys.

inthesprings Hey, thanks guys. Getting ready to split. I think we are going to Dodsons. Thanks for the advice.

Fareast Brewers next to RR bridge up the Mystic River, you can easily walk into Mystic from there, or Esssex up the CT river. Also nice quite anchorage off Bluff Point in Groton, very pretty spot.
