Contemplation of Great Schooner Gam, Portland, Maine

When Portland Yacht Services was still a young organization and we were foolish with youth, we sponsored the Mariah's Cup a race for wooden boats. We had a great time but couldn't maintain it... so we put the annual trophy aside and focused upon the Maine Boatbuilders Show.

Now that we are getting older and foolishness is certainly setting in again, I would like to have PYS host a gentleman and ladies Maine schooner GAM in Portland.

To the members who are joining us at the Maine Boatbuilders Show and others who might have an interest. The topic is open for wild thoughts on dates, venues, conflicts, feeder races, volunteers, challenges, events, rating penalties for being too serious. Pancake breakfasts, the proper number of lobsters per person and the correct menu for a boatyard lobsta bake. What rum should sponsor the event?

Who knows what could happen if we are encouraged.

Endangered Schooners List

Although the catalyst for the creation of the Save Our Schooners Committee was the current plight of the schooner Ernestina, the committee's charge includes endangered schooners nationwide. To that end, a first task for the committee is to create a list of such vessels and to prioritize it in terms of their significance and state of peril.

We would welcome nominations to our list. Candidates can be submitted to me at sos@amschooner.org.
