I launched Saturday morning at low tide (don't use the Golden Hinde ramp then as you slide out into 12" of black muck) and rowed aprox 5 miles up the middle of the bay to Marshall Beach.
There was quite a turnout, and for a change many folks were sailing rather than rowing. Saturday night involved a huge potluck feast, lots of folk music and singing around campfires...oh yeah, we also had the annual meeting.
There were a number of other WoodenBoat Forumites there, including Clyderigged who walked in, Jake/Canoeyawl on his canoeyawl, and WindonWater who arrived as a guest on a restored Russian lapstrake boat using a split standing lugsail.
Here's a shot of the whaleboat coming back from messing about. The catboat motored right up on the beach, with two Drascombs, a faering, and a canoe yawl in the background.
Sunday morning was warm, and the sun quickly came out. Here's a shot of "Dome Row" having breakfast. Lee Caldwell waking up on his dory Sunday am - certainly the smallest boat to be slept aboard.
On the way back I passed Lee sailing his dory across the bay and south to the beach near Marconi. This is the first time he's sailed this dory. The sailing rig is still under development, and he was steering in a most traditional fashion with an oar.
