Sailing Sunday on a Merritt 25 from Hull

Hi folks; the summer days are dwindling down to a precious few, and the forecast for the weekends is great, so I plan on sailing Sunday. I will start at 12PM from the saltwater club in Hull (3 Fitzpatrick Way) I can only take 3. One problem I sometimes have with this site is the sorceress apprentice problem that is 20 people try to come along obviously this wont do. I am trying for a pleasant 4 hour day sail not a dangerously overloaded suicide pact. Another problem is folks put themselves down as going and then hit plus two or three filling or overfilling the boat. That can’t work ether. The final problem is no shows, folks say yes with no intention of going and so deprive other folks of a chance. I will let you know if you’re in; I give do give preference to folks I have sailed with before and who’s quality I know.

    I totally get what you are saying -- I have the same problems in getting crew from this list -- there is no real "booking" support here, however, there is a great diversity of good sailors in this group. So it's worth it to post a sail up here now and then.

    BTW I am going to sail from BHSC at the same time and can take two more crew -- I can take your overflow!

      Hi Liz We pretty much did a light House tour. We went through the black rock channel to the hypocrite channel to graves light then back over to Boston light On the outside of the outer islands. Then down Nantasket Roads past the lighthouse to Hull Gut. We pretty much stayed outside looking for that Eastwind.

    Sorry for the multiple photos, guys. I kept getting "upload not successful" so I guess that was wrong!

    Hi Sean- I'm a member of the Boston Harbor Sailing Club with a 36 ft boat membership. I've been sailing for over 20 years and I'd be happy to help you out on Sunday (and yes, I'm available). And Liz, if Sean doesn't have room for me, I'd be happy to crew for you!

    Hi folks, I think I'm going to squeeze all five of you on board. I've had more than that on it at a time. If you have a good life jacket that suits you better than my orange Horshoe ones please bring it along with you. Bringing a small bag with extra clothing. one never knows. Most folks bring some snacks along enough to share with other people and when that happens we have a good meal. I have water and soda on board with a fair size cooler. Allow some time to get past the beach. Nantasket gets crowded traffic can be slow. There is plenty of parking at the Nantasket Beach saltwater club. There are two clubs on the left hand side the Nantasket Beach saltwater club is the first one. The one with the fence around it. Everybody will know who Sean is finding me won't be a problem.

    I'll be in western mass this weekend. Would love to go another time, if that's a possibility! I'm free on weekdays too

    Would love to make the cut....I'm in as good a shape as I was when I was 30...if you race and need someone you can count on as crew, I'd be happy to throw my hat in the ring.

    note you can edit your event to not allow folks to sign up "guests" but I hear you. Years ago we had a NYE party w/limited space... someone signed up themselves and +significant # of guests taking up a lot of "spots" only to have the person and their guests a no show... and there was a wait list. maybe one solution is I think you can configure your event to have a "fee", and have it so they have to paypal it up front... treat it as a "no show deposit"... after the event if they show then refund the deposit, if they don't show no refund.
