Maine C-Dogs

MAINE

 

-----C-Dory owners in Maine are a hardy and happy lot. Well they should be -- they live in some of the finest summer cruising grounds on the planet.

-----Two "from away" C-Dorys joined with two natives and we had a great time together in August and September 2002. We had a lobster luncheon and then cruised about 900 miles together, as two- or threesomes. We had a great time.

DOWN-EAST GATHERING

-----There aren't many C-Dory's on the Maine coast, but two of the known three natives, plus a few "from away" C-Dorys, gathered for a luncheon and some coastal cruising. After some e-mailing back and forth through the C-Dory owner's site, we settled on a time and a place to gather - The Kennebec Tavern and Marina (note the excellent combination of activities in that site) in Bath, Maine. At the appointed time, three C-Dory families gathered around some good Full Sail Summer Ale (Maine brewery) and lobster rolls. We shared libations, lobster, charts, books, timing and places for cruising, and a few tall tales. In short, a Great Gathering.
