There are many ways to get to Pleasant Bay and one of them is by paddling down the Namequoit River in Orleans. This kayaker was enjoying the last part of her trip out to the bay along the quiet and winding river. #orleans #namequoitriver
Yesterday was the 30th Annual Arey’s Pond Cat Gathering, one of the largest gatherings of catboats on the east coast. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
“Our annual Cat Gathering is a time for catboats of all shapes and sizes to come together for a just-for-fun regatta through Pleasant Bay. Every year over 80 boats come together for this parade of sail.”
It was just spectacular to see all of those sailboats out on the water!

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!
Yesterday was Arey’s Pond’s 2021 14 World’s Regatta on Little Pleasant Bay and Big Pleasant Bay. The regatta was the best of three US Sailing sanctioned races using a windward-leeward course. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
Two races took place in Little Pleasant Bay, and one took place in Big Pleasant Bay. The goal with this event is to work towards making the Arey’s Pond 14′ Catboat a US Sailing recognized one design class.
It was such fun to watch the races, certainly a group of talented sailors out there sailing! If you missed the races yesterday, you can see Arey’s Pond Annual Cat Gathering today on Pleasant Bay.
