Чем вы займетесь

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 sail to the race course 4 miles from our dock location. Captain's 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. Our division is the "Cruising Class" – we compete using our mainsail and jib against 10-15 boats of similar size. Once we arrive at the course location (off of Falmouth, Maine), 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 Portland harbor, arriving back at 8:30 pm.

Подробнее о хозяине Maggie

Maggie

Maggie & her husband Bob are lifelong sailors & passionate racers who have competed in the Casco Bay sailboat racing scene for over 20 years. We are both licensed USCG Master Captains, Circumnavigators (sailed around the world) and ran a successful charter boat business for several years in the US and British Virgin Islands, taking 6 guests for weeklong adventures. Prior to our career in sailing we were both business executives - Bob worked at IBM for 20 years and then founded a successful professional services company. Maggie was a newspaper editor and a community relations executive. We are both currently "pre-retired" - Bob is active in professional boat deliveries, ski instructing and occasional "handyman" work. Maggie works as a personal chef, artist and beekeeper.
