While I was on the road in Maine last weekend, visiting Lyman Morse and other yards, I swung by Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine, one of New England’s preeminent facilities for service and craftsmanship. As a New York Yacht Club member who can’t seem to break away from his work – but eager to catch up with racing and cruising friends — I wanted to find out how everyone was faring on the Club annual summer cruise.
It’s always a treat to take that time in August, the peak of Maine’s gorgeous cruising and regatta season, and spend time aboard on the island strewn coast. What I saw and heard didn’t disappoint, and made me feel like I was, somehow, participating in this favorite annual tradition.
