Social Race to the Riverhead Pub?

Recommended Posts

There is another cable running across the river another 3/4 of a mile or so up stream of the one on your pic Freeeeeeeeeeeeeedom, Ken is still trying to see who is responsible for it. Sadly it looks like Vb won't fit so will have to hook a ride with someone else.

A Ha! FINALLY the 8.5 air draft rule can be celebrated and recognized as the best thing since sliced bread!

The riverhead pub! Who knew that the visionaries who setup the rule had this in mind from day 1.

 

Also the idea that on nights like tonight with a bit of breeze we'll have a full fleet out there too...

The 8.5 fleet (well, 4 of us) went up last season. The mulleties were there at the same time. Short tacking all the way to the pub was interesting that's for sure.

 

We ended up motoring the last bit as the family were sick of tacking!

 

Great day out

I have been up on a runabout and it seemed like taking the tri would be no drama but I wasn't paying much attention to cable etc so guess I'm just checking the heights etc are ok... Also how much tide/current is there and is ok to anchor near riverhead pub? I'm not keen on putting the boat on the jetty

We all anchored just upstream of the pub. It was quite breezy but held well on the Danforth. The hardest part was finding enough space on the jetty to get the dinghy in between all the other boats.

 

No height issues in the gbe.

 

Didn't notice the tide flow but we went with it both ways.
