Ned Hinds- Bow Lake
PLEASE come to Bow Lake on Saturday 14 September for the Ed Hinds
Memorial and the District Women's Junior's and Master's Championships!
WE NEED YOU!  The small fleet at Bow Lake travels more than the
members of any other New England Fleet - we NEED others to come to Bow
Lake!  Be there!

This is a fun regatta with great sailing and a great social program.
Meet at the Water
Street boat ramp at 9:30 or 10, skipper's meeting at 11, first race at
Noon, no race sequence starts after 4 and drinks, appetizers, dinner
and awards at the yacht club after racing.

See you in a week!  Please let me know you are coming.

Bob Shapiro

Schedule: Registration starts at the Water Street boat ramp at 9:30 AM and the skipper's meeting is at 11:00 AM at the boat ramp on Water Street.  First start will be Noon in the middle of the lake and we won't begin a starting sequence after 4:00 PM.  We will hold as many races as we can – the last six years we have sailed 4-8 races.

-     Trophies for first three places skipper and crew, and for Women’s, Juniors and Masters

  • Refreshments in the morning
  • Appetizers, refreshments, dinner for skipper, crew, friends and family
  • More fun than you ought to be able to have in one day!

  • Junior teams (all juniors) sail for free!

    You can purchase sandwiches for lunch at Uncle George’s Market across the street from the Grange Hall.
