Cosa farete

Climb aboard Decoy, a 35 foot C&C sloop for an "around the bouy" race every summer Thursday on beautiful Casco Bay, Maine. We will meet in Portland at the Maine Yacht Center clubhouse at 4PM, conduct a safety briefing and then set sail to the race course 4 miles north from our dock location. Captains' Bob & Maggie will explain the features of the boat and explain how sail trim, boat handling, teamwork and tactics all work together to make the boat fast & competitive. Guests will trim the sails, help with navigation & take the helm. We'll compete in the "Cruising Class" – using our mainsail and jib against 10-15 boats of similar size. Once we arrive at the course location (between Falmouth and Great Diamond Island), we will cross the starting line at 6PM in the best position possible - keeping in mind all the other boats will be trying to do the same thing, at exactly the same time - exciting stuff! The race itself will be a combination of upwind and downwind legs, lasting about 90 minutes. Once finished, we will sail back to the dock, enjoying snacks & beverages as the sun sets over the beautiful Portland skyline, arriving back at about 8:30 pm.
