Pacific City, Oregon, used my Gloucester Dory shot for
its ‘Dory Days’ promotion. I guess it hasn’t got a ‘real dory’ there…
No credit to Len for the photo- poor form but I guess when they are so lazy that they use a Northeast Grand Banks Dory to represent a Northwest festival that’s what you get. I wonder how many other times the web person for the Visit Pacific City website grabs other peoples photos without crediting them?
Hi Joey, here’s the original…
Taken at the 2010 Gloucester Schooner Festival.
see, was that so hard^^^?
Amy and Christina will be racing dories vs the Canadians on June 19th In Gloucester Harbor.
Be sure to come down and support our crews.
I know I seem like I’ve been harping on it for teh past week but I still can’t believe how many treasures are to be discovered from Gloucester’s past at The Cape Ann Museum.
Check out the website for hours and more info-
Every year the race dories get taken out of the water and stored in a tent up on Pond Road. They need to be rowed across from Saint Peter’s Park, put on trailers, and then brought up to Pond Road where they will be pressure washed and put away til the spring.
Here are a couple of videos that FOB Frank Ciolino took of the day-
Listen for Frank’s Evil Laugh. Mwah Ha Ha!
Joey Ciolino picked me up for a 5 minute row yesterday. I’m hooked. What a blast. Now if I could only get a few moments to be able to get out on the water. sigh.
I laugh as Damon forgets to untie the bowline and makes zero headway rowing.
After realizing he forgot to untie the bow line, Damon had us under way and around the Schooners for some up close pictures.
