Photos from March Sailing Adventures

Hi Joey,
I just wanted to share some pictures of the Sail GHS Racing Team. They have been out practicing for the last week and a half for their upcoming scrimmage. A little wind, a little rain, a little cold, and some freezing waters can’t keep these sailors away. No wimps here – look at those smiles!
Go Sail GHS!

Sail GHS Summer Sailing Clinics

Hi Joey,

I’m sure you have seen the kids on the Sail GHS Team out in the harbor having a great time racing in all weather throughout the year.  During the summer months, they are offering Summer Sailing Clinics in their

new, C 420 sailboats and even in their newly acquired LaserLevel II Sailing Coach, Guy Fiero is at the helm and with assistance from his very, dedicated team of volunteers.  This is the biggest bargain for sailing on Cape Ann at  ONLY $85 per week, Monday through Friday 8 – 11:30am.  Five days a week and still time in the afternoon to hit the beach!  Kids with some sailing experience ages 10 and up are welcome.  Classes meet at Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center and there is no need to pre-register!  Just bring yourself, your friends, and your life jackets if you have them.  Sailors should arrive promptly at 8:00 am as space is limited.  Discounts available. 

All proceeds from this ongoing fundraiser go to Sail GHS, a non-profit organization to help defray operating costs and provide the youth of Cape Ann and beyond with this wonderful sailing opportunity!

Please contact sailghs@yahoo.com or Guy Fiero at 978-290-7894 with any questions.

Thanks so much for sharing!

Sam and Erin Rulli Sail For Sailing!

 

Good morning Joey,
I’m a long-time fan of GMG. My husband, Sam, & I are Gloucester residents and met you one morning when we visited Capt Joe’s earlier this summer.  I still have to stop by for my GMG sticker!
At the beginning of the summer I saw your post on the SailGHS fundraising sails. Our calendar was too busy to get something booked, but when I saw the later post with pictures from one of the sail participants I decided we needed to make time. I emailed Patti Page who put me in touch with Hilary and we quickly set up a time for Saturday morning at 9:30.
We awoke to a sunny, windless day but were excited for our sail nonetheless. We met at the Pier where Patti took us out to the boats. Sam, Hilary & I enjoyed a fabulous 2 1/2 hours in the harbor on a Rhodes 18. We learned a bit about sailing, the SailGHS program, the birds in the area, the history of the Rhodes 18 and lots of other good stuff. We eventually did catch enough wind to go back and forth across the harbor a few times. Sunshine and fresh air out on the water….it doesn’t get any better! After the sail Hilary took us around the inner harbor in her Boston Whaler, we got to see the shore and boats up close. We left with our Again & Again pouch, some basics on sailing and a high level of excitement to do another sail with SailGHS next month and to take a weeklong sailing course in Boston next summer.
I can’t say enough how much fun we had and how happy we were to be able to support such a great program. Patti & Hilary were just great. We think Patti’s idea for a community boating center is Gloucester is a must-do and look forward to supporting the SailGHS program and any efforts towards a community sailing program in the future.
Thanks for posting about the fundraising sails!
Cheers,
Erin Rulli

Sailing thanks and pix

Bill Rothchild contacted GMG through our contact tab at the top of the page.  He asked about renting sailboats for his family.  A few emails later and Bill showed his family a great time thanks to the warm hospitality of the SailGHS Program.

Bill Rothchild writes-

Hey Joe:

We just got home and wanted to express once again our gratitude to you for setting us up with SailGHS! We met Patty and Hillary at Solomon Landing and they ferried us out to the boats, where we boarded a Rhodes 19 captained by Will, one of the program participants.
We sailed out past 10 Pound, then had a few drops of rain. It was great to get out on the waters of Gloucester Harbor! We had a great time- the ladies even supplied some snacks for us. Judging by the pictures we are sending, I think Hillary, Patty and Tracy (Will’s mom) also had a good time.
We come to Gloucester every year. It made us feel very good to have an opportunity to give back to Gloucester by supporting the sailing program. Hope everyone likes the pix and the best of luck to SailGHS, an important link
the sailing heritage of a historical city.
