Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Maybe I should have gone into PR writing, eh?

    The new PBR event reportedly has about 50 boats signed up, but there’s still room for more. I’m hoping to catch a ride on the sloop Isobel — recently designed and built locally — or at least get a good look at her:

    Ben, How did the rendezvous turn out? My wife is from Rockland and now transplanted in the MId-Atlantic. We couldn’t make it this year and hope they do it again.

    The weather was a little off, but the event went well, I think. I went to both Camden parties and took Gizmo out to see the race start on Saturday. The sail fleet at least was a nice mix of small and large, race and cruise, local and away. The powerboat fleet was much smaller, I guess, and I don’t know how their photo trips went, but I saw lots of smiles ashore. Here’s some local coverage: http://goo.gl/SeuVF

    Hi all,
    Thanks for the endorsement Ben and great to see you at the events! Team PBR took a month off to recover, wrap and regroup after a very successful event. We met last week to pick dates and download the event. Mark your calendars – 2012 Penobscot Bay Rendezvous will take place August 16-19. Format will be similar as why mess with success. The powerboat fleet of 11 was a jolly one and all said they would participate next year. The Photo Pursuit was a huge success.
    Thanks for your interest and hope you will join us next summer! http://www.penobscotbayrendezvous.com
    cheers
