MAH JONG recently returned from a week long adventure up the East Coast from Vineyard Haven, MA to Camden, ME to partake in the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta. The feeder race led from Camden to Brookline through heavy fogs, although the skies cleared enough the next day to allow for an intense upwind zig zag and smooth coast downwind to the finish line. Mah Jong won 2nd place in Division C despite the maze of lobster pots, sneaky fog, high winds and occasional stagnant air.

With each sail, we learn more and more about the boat, what adjustments should be made, as well as additions to be added. Up next, a spinnaker pole will be fastened to allow us to go downwind faster. 

Other stops along the way included harbor fishing and icy water dips off of Burnt island, and Lobster dinners and swims in the quarry in VinelHaven.
