It’s almost time to put the boats away and pull in those moorings until next season. I bet there’s plenty of sailors who will brave the cooler weather and enjoy a few more sails out in beautiful Pleasant Bay.
The 31st Annual Arey’s Pond Cat Gathering was held this past weekend. It is a just-for-fun regatta for catboats and classic sailboats. It starts in Little Pleasant Bay, goes through The Narrows, and into Pleasant Bay. Every year nearly 100 boats come together for this parade of sail.
It was so much fun on Sunday watching all of the sailboats from the “Cat Gathering” starting their race in Little Pleasant Bay.
This boat was the only one that was brave enough to go out in the foggy and windy conditions on Little Pleasant Bay. We saw him come into shore very quickly with the strong winds behind him.
It won’t be much more time before this bench will be filled with people enjoying the beautiful views of Pleasant Bay and all the activity around there. It looks so inviting, don’t you think?
There’s a lot of activity at Arey’s Pond as those classic, handmade Catboats are getting ready to be put in the water for the season. You can see some of them already at their moorings or at the dock.
It’s such an exciting time of the year… and look at that sky!
