catamount No, we made the trip (see post #7). The boat has long since been hauled out and trucked inland. Sorry, maybe another time?

Me too. I had rotator cuff surgery in April so I couldn't start sailing till
August. (Well I did the Marblehead to P-Town race in July against doctor's orders) so that would have been a great sail.

Tim, I hope you had a great summer of sailing and look foward to crossing paths with you again.

catamount Well, three of the crew were seriously seasick, and it was very cold and wet.

Winds were 25 knots on the beam, sometimes more (35 with gusts to 40 for a little while), rarely less. Seas were 3 to 5 feet, sometimes more (8 feet). Less than 15 hours from leaving the dock at Harborfields to being secured on our mooring in Marblehead - about 100 nautical miles. We were generally making about 8-1/2 knots (and up) for most of the night, under staysail and double-reefed main.

I had a blast (except for the stress of worry about my crew).

Maine Sail Sounds like fun wish I could be there!! Damn business obligations.

catamount OK, plans are moving forward for a mid-day Saturday departure -- looks like we'll have three or four of us, still room for one or two more if you're interested. Should be a good sail!

Boothbay to Marblehead Saturday October 16, 2010

The weather forecast for Friday on the Gulf of Maine just keeps getting worse. It looks like a low-pressure "bomb" will develop early Friday morning and persist through Friday night, with winds potentially in excess of 50 knots, and seas potentially up to 14 feet or more!

So we're now thinking about possibly a mid-day Saturday departure, which should get us into Marblehead by mid-day Sunday (if not earlier -- should be a fast reach with strong winds out of the NW...), and folks back to Maine or New Hampshire by Sunday evening.

nickmerc Have a great time on the trip. I used to sail between Gloucester, Salem, and Boston Harbor on my Hobiecat. I miss it up there.

Boothbay to Marblehead Saturday October 16, 2010

Any interest in a cold overnight sail?

I'm planning to deliver my Peterson 34 GREYHAWK from Boothbay Harbor down to Marblehead on Friday 10/15 with some help from my Dad. We'll be shuttling cars Thursday afternoon/evening 10/14, and we should be all done with the trip and back in Maine (by car) by Saturday afternoon 10/16.

FWIW, below is the current offshore weather forecast. It wasn't like this when we originally made these plans, but I should have expected something like this to develop -- seems to be pretty standard fare aboard GREYHAWK (although not much so far this year). This could be a good opportunity for anyone out there who wants some Heavy Weather experience but on somebody else's boat...
