Arey’s Pond Annual Cat Gathering In Pleasant Bay On Cape Cod.

Yesterday was Arey’s Pond Annual Cat Gathering in Pleasant Bay.  (Click on blog link for other photos.)

The Cat Gathering is one of the largest gatherings of catboats on the East Coast. Catboats and other classic wooden boats are invited to participate in this just-for-fun regatta through Little Pleasant Bay, into Pleasant Bay and back.

It was a perfect day with a good wind and sunny skies and lots of catboats out in the bay. I counted about 90 boats in Pleasant Bay! Wow!  It was quite a sight to see!


It’s Almost Spring At Arey’s Pond On Cape Cod!

There are no boats at Arey’s Pond yet, but in a few weeks there will be much activity, assembling and launching their world-renowned and popular Catboats. I took this photograph from across the pond looking at the boathouse. It will be fun to watch their Catboat fleet grow this spring as the pond fills up with boats of all sizes.

If you’ve never seen a Catboat, they are pretty cool. Google areyspondboatyard.com and you can learn a lot! Arey’s Pond Boat Yard is known for its exemplary workmanship and the elegance of their boats. It is amazing just to read their history!
