Small Steps Toward the New Normal
We hope to take the first small steps toward some resemblance of normal. The governor has extended the “stay at home order” to June 15. The dock will be installed Monday, June 1, as planned but Soling sailing will not begin until Tuesday, June 16, weather permitting and with restrictions. Wednesdays will be used as a flex or rain day and the US12s should start on Thursday, June 18. Lily Pond in Gilford will be activated on Sundays at 9 a.m. offering a venue to sail “what you brung” with no spectators.

Skipper attire

Sailing Guidelines
We will be working hard to keep everyone safe. Our skippers will be required to wear face masks and to stay six feet away from each other. Any guests will be asked to do the same. The number of boats will be limited to no more than ten in the water at any given time. Skippers will be asked to register by 6:00 p.m. Monday, and if we get too many, we’ll shift some to our Wednesday flex day. At least until mid-July we will not keep score as we issue only bragging rights — and, boy, are we good at that!!

But please maintain at least that six-foot distance. Bring your camera for the show but also bring and wear a face mask. Sailing always begins at 1:00 p.m. on Back Bay at the Lehner Street/Glendon Street municipal parking area.
