Apologies to anyone who came to Megunticook only to find no one there, Double apologies if you actually set up and sailed that crap. One run across the broads early in the morning was enough to make the call to shift to Damariscotta in spite of the smaller wind forecast. Most folks got the memo, but if you don’t communicate with any other sailors then you are out of the loop. One of the shortcomings of using this sort of web site to communicate is that it’s pretty much a one way street. It replaced a very burdensome and confusing email list, which had replaced the phone hotline. We have discussed different ways to have a more open system, but nothing seems to work as well all around. Text lists get big and confusing.
So for now this is how it works, or doesn’t, as the case may be. The best way to avoid that sinking feeling as you drive down to the launch and see no one there is to connect.
There are a few boats on the ice hoping for a morning sail before the rain scheduled for noon. Strong south winds predicted. Big winds, rough ice: be sure your nuts are tight.
