    Planning has begun for the annual New England Junket for 2019. The gathering will take place in Gouldsboro Bay, Maine, from Thursday, August 29 – Sunday, September 1, and will include sailing together, visiting, and sharing some potluck/bring-your-own meals. We have also been invited to once again join our friends Chubba and Bonnie at their annual Labor Day lobster potluck, together with about 60 of their friends, on that Saturday, August 31.

    Last year we had a very good time, with about 20 junk rig sailors attending, five JR boats of various sizes, and another five boats with a variety of rigs all sailing together here in the bay.

    On the water, there are good places to anchor for large and small boats, two boat ramps, and protected coves for small craft, as well as easy access to/from the open ocean about 4 miles down the bay. Shore access is available via a deepwater dock on Gouldsboro Bay. On land there is a campground on the tidal, well-protected shore of Joy Bay, at the head of Gouldsboro Bay, and a couple of bed and breakfast inns about fifteen minutes away by car. Grocery stores, restaurants, and boat supplies/hardware are also available nearby.

    For more details, or just to let us know that you are planning to come, please reply to this post, or send an email to sailsec@junkrigassociation.org.

    We hope to see you!

    Thank you for leading this charge once more, Shemaya.  I have blocked it out on my calendar and look forward to seeing everyone again.  

    You have a busy year in store, what with the R2AK and crossing the country twice.

    Hi Scott,

    This is great news! And yes, the amount of stuff I have going on at the moment is really something… Looking forward to the junket, when theoretically the dust will have somewhat settled! It'll be great to see you and Lisa, and to hear all the latest.

    Cheers,

    Shemaya

    Hi Shemaya, if work doesn't stop me again I will try to get up!  I bought a camper van in the last year so can do this!.

    Regards, David.
