    New England, USA Junket, being planned for September 8 – 10, 2017. All are invited!

    The gathering will take place in the cove at Holbrook Island, outside of Castine, Maine, in Penobscot Bay. This is a well protected anchorage with good holding, a few first-come/first-served moorings, and peaceful wooded shoreline with public-access trails and well-maintained dinghy docks/floats. Just around the corner is the town of Castine and its harbor, with rental slips, moorings, restaurants, and the various other benefits of town.

    We can get together for a day, or a weekend, for visiting, and for sailing on the gorgeous waters of upper Penobscot Bay. All are welcome!

    If you might be interested, please contact me – your JRA "Committee Member without Portfolio" –  by replying here, or via e-mail at mwp1@junkrigassociation.org, and I will keep you updated with developments. Please feel free to pass this invitation along to whomever you think might be interested. This is not an "official" JRA event, but a gathering of like-minded friends, from within and outside of our organization here. There are no fees, and we are each, of course, responsible for our own well-being on and off the water.

    Hoping to see a good crowd!

    PS For those who are on Facebook, some of the organizing for this junket is going on in the relatively new junk rig Facebook group, International Junk Rig: Sailing Old and New, found here.

    May I suggest that it would be helpful if you put the dates of the Junket in the title?

    I hear from Shemaya that she's getting quite a lot of interest in her junket: three definites and four serious maybes, plus a few hovering around still wondering.

    The venue sounds wonderful, with dinghy docks, wharves, islands, sheltered harbours, shops and restaurants aplenty.  I can see it becoming a week long junket as the boats sail in company, exploring what looks like a most delightful mini cruising ground.  If anyone can get there, I'd recommend it.  I wish I could join in!!  (And by September, the fog should have gone.)
