Winter Sleep

URCHIN is spending the winter under her canvas cover at the cape. We decided to leave her there since this is where we want to use her when we are there and did not get her in the water much in Jersey this summer.

Middleton Cup 2013

SPY won the Cup this year. We sailed SILENT MAID with the old crew and Henry to work all the electronic foredeck equipment. MAID was last in the first race, first in the second, and tied for first in the last. VAPOR tossed her mast with an explosive crack coming round the last mark.
pix up soon.

The newest version of SILENT MAID is out sailing on the Bay after some of the most horrific fall stormy weather. The hurricane made a mess of the bay, but MAID weathered the storm at DeRouville's in Tom's River on a trailer. Earlier this year she sprang a leak during the races at SPYC. Thanks to Beaton's Boatyard and Amanda RVZ Wright for the pix.

Beckets Bucket IHYC 2012

Light air evening race. SPYDER grabbed a double bullet. SILENT MAID was out with a full compliment a finished mid pack both times, sailed by George and Georgia. TORCH was not last. Lovely sail. Thanks Aileen for taking the pix.
