Re: Summer 2013 New England SailNet Rendezvous

The idea of utilizing a high bridge to shoot pictures of sailboats is great.

That can approximate the helicopter view, for none of the cost!

The negative of using a bridge is that generally you won't get any wave & heeling action to speak of.

Can't have everything..... :-)

Is true, most pictures are water level though and you can get from firends. The bridge was a nice stable platform. Unfortunately that day the wind was 4 knots at best and to even get the sails to fill was difficult

Would be great if you could take pictures at your event since you have the equipment and maybe post some.

Assuming we arrive at a concensus of when & where to have this rendezvous, I would be more than happy to co-ordinate picture shooting too!

Re: Summer 2013 New England SailNet Rendezvous

I'd also like to participate once we can find a place and time. The idea of an "aerial" photo shoot of the assembled fleet is intriguing. I checked out the bridges between the Cape and Eastern CT and there aren't too many that would allow for easy photography. The ones that do are in CT and are not centrally located for all NE sailors.

If the bridge idea doesn't work, perhaps we could get a plane or helicopter to overfly the rendezvous? I have a couple of bro-in-law pilots in the area and they are always looking for an excuse to go flying - if they couldn't make it, I'm sure they could recommend someone. Or maybe there is a Sailnut that also flies?

No pedestrians allowed:
Braga Bridge (I-195), Fall River MA
Mt. Hope Bridge (Rte 114), Portsmouth/Bristol RI
Jamestown Bridge (Rte 138), Kingstown/Jamestown RI
Newport Bridge (Rte 138), Jamestown/Newport RI
IWay Bridge (I-195), Providence RI
Washington Bridge (I-195), Providence/E.Providence RI (Walkway closed for construction)

Bridges with pedestrian access:
Sakonnet River Bridge (Rtes 24/138), Portsmouth/Tiverton RI - Pedestrians only allowed on North side of new bridge. Old bridge blocks view of water from new bridge. Limited maneuvering room near bridge.

Bourne Bridge (Rte 28), Bourne MA - Pedestrian access on the southbound side of the bridge. Limited time for photo shoots due to fast currents in the Cape Cod Canal. Sailboats must motor through the canal.

Sagamore Bridge (Rtes 3/6), Sagamore MA -Pedestrian access on the northbound side of the bridge. Limited time for photo shoots due to fast currents in the Cape Cod Canal. Sailboats must motor through the canal.

Gold Star Memorial Bridge (I-95), New London/Groton CT - Pedestrian access on north side of bridge. Decent maneuvering room near bridge. Near USCG Academy.

Baldwin Bridge (I-95), Old Saybrook/Old Lyme CT - Pedestrian access on north side of bridge. Decent maneuvering room near bridge. Near my mooring!

Re: Summer 2013 New England SailNet Rendezvous

Hi Bill,

Unless someone does come up with a helicopter or a plane, (which I highly doubt will happen), I was envisioning the more typical "taking pictures of your boat from mine", methodology.

However you also raised the more important point that has not been resolved:

Where & When will we meet?

I would like to put a date out there: Saturday, July 27th 2013.

It was July 27th 2011 when we lost our GulfStar.
It was July 27th 2012 when we closed our purchase of the Triumph.

So, that date has some significance, and it is still at the height of the summer.

I would also still propose dropping our hooks at Edgartown / Chappaquiddick, because that has a sandy bottom which my hook has never dragged in, and it provides a sheltered harbor (for the prevailing SW winds) large enough for plenty of vessels.

So, who wants to do this?

I'm in! Any earlier in July and I'd be out of town, but I'll be back by then.

Re: Summer 2013 New England SailNet Rendezvous

I would be glad to join you! Also, since I am out of work, anytime works for me.

As a suggestion for location, the HERRESHOFF Museum in Bristol has moorings at a reasonable cost, and I believe that it would be a good experience for anyone that has not been there. Herreshoff Marine Museum & America's Cup Hall of Fame
chef2sail and outbound like this.

Herreshoff Museum would be a good experience for
one who has been there as well!
Would include in summer cruise. Now lets see if we can
make it happen.
