The first NETS/Moane rendezvous of the year was held at Fay's Marina. After quite a bit of rain, Friday cleared up, though it was still unseasonably cold. I was last to arrive at about 4pm. Chuck Healy, a new member, "volunteered" to make arrangements for us at Fay's and was on hand to greet us. George Lavoie and his friend Ron came down from Canton Maine. Ken Fordham and his wife Marilyn and friend Josiah, who keep their new-to-them Catleina 25 at Fays, were there getting their boat ready for the summer. Chuck and his wife Helen and their younger daughter, Brianna brought their boat up from Ames Farm for the weekend. And lastly Ed Goodhue brought his boat up from the Cape and offered me his "guest cabin" for the weekend. After rigging we went out for dinner at the Sawyers and then George and Ron, Ed and I hunkered in for a verry cold night. Saturday dawned chilly, with light winds.
Saturday night wasn't quite as cold but there was frost on the cushions on Sunday morning. Don Huff and Ed's son Ted joined us for the "sail" on Sunday - this time to Wolfboro for ice cream. The day was warmer and again no wind. There were more boats on the lake so we couldn't get near the docks for our ice cream. We had some wind on the way back and thoroughly enjoyed the warm sun and clear skys.
