Watch Hill Weekend

Heading up to Watch Hill, RI this weekend for the baptism of my niece Kate. Watch Hill is home of the renown WH-15, a class of Herreshoff designed sloops possessed of exceptional grace and beauty. Click on the Watch Hill Yacht Club site and the "WH-15" tab to the left for more info. One of my first posts for this blog was on the WH-15 so I won't cover old ground but I'll let you know next week if I'm lucky enough to get out on one Saturday. Reccomended weekend reading includes this article on blind sailor Matthew Chao as well as news of the dismasting of Maximus during the ongoing Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup. Have a good one and see you Monday.

Make your niece a cool sea chest. I'm going to make one for my nephew (born past May). There is one highlighted in the latest issue of WoodenBoat. It's pretty salty looking.
