Casco Bay Gaffers Race


A new race this year, the first of many, from Portland to Bailey Island, ME. The race will immediately follow the the Portland SchoonerFest weekend.


Gaffer Race - Call to all Gaffers

Call to all local gaff riggers, including schooners, we will join the gaffer race in Blackbird.  The end of the race is through Merriconaesg Sound running beween scenic Harpswell Neck and Baily Island to Cooks Lobster near the historic Stone Bridge.  Doesn't get finer than that.  Perry is working on the details and we will post more infromation as it develops.  Look for either Perry or myself at the Maine Boat Builders Show on Saturday Morning.  The Gulf of Maine Chapter will be digging into its seeminly bottomless treasury to support the event.  Peter
