June 9-11 marks the occasion of Norfolk Harborfest, which will be dedicated this year to the memory of Captain Lane Briggs. The Briggs family will be leading the June 9, 2006 Parade of Sail in Norfolk Rebel, escorted by a fleet of friends representing Lane's work with the sailing and maritime community.

The Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race was one of Lane's proudest accomplishments, and the Executive Director of Norfolk Festevents, Karen Scherberger, has extended an invitation to schooners to sail in the Norfolk Rebel escort fleet in the Parade of Sail. There will be a tossing of the wreath ceremony with the traditional "whistle symphony" for Lane, along with a dedication celebration naming Lane's traditional docking location at the marina "Briggs Point", and a "Sailor's Night" party Saturday night at the marina following the fireworks.

Maine Boat Builders Show

The Maine Boat Builders Show was a great event and a whole lot of fun. Our thanks to Phin and Joanna Sprague for their thoughtful accommodation of the Association and a fantastic booth location. Look for an article on the show in the upcoming Wing & Wing. Special thanks to members Al and Phyllis, Bob and Roberta, Jay and Sarah, Fred and Mary Anne, and Al Roper for tending booth for three days, to Skip Cornell for making it down to dinner on Saturday, and all the other members, old and new, who stopped by.
