The GHS Sailing Team Launched their Boats Sunday Morning in preparation of the 2010 Season. Students, Parents, and Volunteers pitched in to get their Boats in the water. Get down to the State Fish Pier when they are practicing, it’s always fun to see them racing around and practicing their capsizing drills.
Here’s some info from SailGHS Administrator Patti Paige;
The GHS sailing team is a co-ed team consisting of middle school and high school sailors. Currently, students from Rockport, Gloucester and home-schooled children participate in the program. The spring sailing season begins April 5 and runs through May 28. Fall sailing is held in September and October. We meet Monday through Thursday from 3:00 pm until 5:30 pm. We sail in Gloucester harbor and conduct a learn to sail program where inexperienced students sail in Rhodes 19. More advanced sailors belong to the racing team and sail in Vanguard C-420s.
GHS sailng team is a member of the Massachusetts Bay League (MBL) high school sailing organization which is located at the Community Boating Center on the Charles River in Boston, MA. MBL organizes racing events between local high schools in three divisions.
Anyone interested in sailing with us, students and adults alike, can contact me at either firstname.lastname@example.org
or by calling me at 978-283-4676.

They were just making donuts in this machine ten minutes prior to me taking this shot. This entire piece of donut making equipment looks like it just was set up brand new out of the box. If cleanliness is next to godliness then Willow Rest must be heaven.

Unfortunately, The Appledore no longer calls Rockport her home. But it’ll live on in many an artist’s work.
