Header Photo: The Ladies, Back in the Sea Snark

The previous header photo was of the two intrepid sisters racing the Sea Snark in the Archipelago Rally in New England. They were back again in the Sea Snark for the 2013 Rally. This is my kind of goofy regatta with all kinds of small sailing craft, dinks, canoes, catboats, some odd Frankenboats, some just useful (i.e - maybe not racing) smallboats. I covered the 2012 Rally in this post, including the stellar video the sisters put together. They put together another great video this year.

One of the founders of this sailing Woodstock, Chris Museler, has a report on the 2013 Rally over here. One of these days I'd like to put this on my fall calender.

Were exactly is this event held?

I think these Rally folks are of a wandering tribe. They seem to choose a new pond every year to explore, mostly in and around Rhode Island.

This event is practically in my backyard - or as we say in Rhode Island - way over on the other side of the state.

You are right, they do choose a different pond each year. It seems to be an event that's mainly for fun with lots of kids participating. I keep meaning to do it one year, maybe with some of my grandkids.

Let me know if you do decide to come up for it one year.

Tillerman, I'll be sure to let you know if I ever get my act together on this one. Maybe George and I can put together one of our double-decked trailers.
