Marion, on the South Coast of Massachusetts, is a sublime, small, coastal New England town. Known for Tabor Academy and the exquisite Sippican Harbor brimming with sailboats, the village has a scale that is spot on, rejecting the oversized houses and over sized vehicles too common today.
Beverly Yacht Club.
For over three decades, in odd numbered years, the Beverly Yacht Club has hosted the Marion Bermuda Race.
Yesterday, we headed out to watch the start of the race.
|Our Captain - United Stated Coast Guard 50 Ton Master, My Husband's College Roommate, and A Veteran of This Race|
We went out in Buzzards Bay about five miles.
|Beverly Yacht Club's Gracious Hosts|
|I brought my RHADC hat from the last race.|
The weather was not what I would call lovely. It was overcast and rainy, with two foot waves.
At the starting line, the usual jockeying for position occured.
We then retuned to shore.
