1pm Saturday we will be racing V36s At Sandy Pond in Nashua NH. So if you have one and want to race GET UP HERE!
We have started our volunteering at the Boys and Girls club Commodore Rick and myself have done our first full day of teaching and are preparing for our second. It was a fun seeing how excited the kids were to have us there to show the sailing. They were even more excited about the boats they get to build decorate and take home at the end of the summer after we sail them in the pool of course. Then it will be off to the pond to see what they learned sailing real RC boats @ Sandy Pond.
For anyone that doesn’t do Marbleheads here at Sandy pond we will be sailing V36s in the afternoon. If you contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rick (email@example.com) we can adjust the time for more racing action but for now 1pm to 3pm is the time.
We now have a Facebook page please swing by give us a like. OMG here is a link to make it super easy.

EC-12S ran today with swirling and wildly varying winds we got in 8 races before Chris O’s boat (#49) broke a winch line to his jib. Rick L finished first with his boat 1 race. Rick G won 2 and for the first time in his racing career Chris O. won 5 races captaining Rick G’s number 49 blue and white EC-12. After calling it a day due to the breakage we chatted laughed and had a blast. See you all soon NMYC
The weather was cool and mostly cloudy, and morning winds were low, around 0-5 mph, that came from the NNW. Right around 10 a.m., the winds fell to 1mph and shifted around with small gusts up to 5mph.
Eight skippers launched for this regatta on a wonderful day to match their skills against each other in twelve races. The results were close. and all the skippers enjoyed the day. I would like to thank Jerry for keeping score and the time clock going. Chris O’ for bring the Nashua colors and flying them to indicate we are holding an event. The parks and recreation department (Jason and their team) for making the park and pond presentable. Results of the races are as follows:
Unfortunately the Schooner, Sloop, and Electric Boat Event scheduled for today had to be canceled due to strong wind that would make sailing some of the boats unsafe to sail. The event may be rescheduled. Otherwise, another event is scheduled for September 4, 2021. See you then.
