Click here to view the full 2016 Results Summary. You’ll notice that Allegro won ALL series, including the Commodore’s Race and Commodore’s Cup (season long points total). Quite a feat to say the least, and a hearty congrats to the Heminway clan!
It’s still gorgeous out on the water, and fall is certainly coming fast. Enjoy September, get those boats under cover, and we will see you next summer.

All Small Pointers!
Please join us on Saturday July 30 between 4:00 and 6:00pm for a post-race Tea at the Small Point Club sponsored by the Maine Island Trail Association. All Small Pointers are invited! We will announce our July Series winners (and provide some MITA sponsored swag!) and provide an opportunity to learn more about MITA.
Founded in 1988 as America’s first water trail, the Maine Island Trail is comprised of 217 wild island and mainland sites that are open to visitation by boaters. MITA islands are open to all visitors, whether arriving by sail, power, paddle, or row boat. The Maine Island Trail Association, Maine’s largest boating organization with more than 5,000 members, facilitates access to these beautiful spaces, and engages hundreds of volunteers every year to help care for them. MITA produces an annual guide to the Maine Island Trail, which members receive as a book or mobile app. Even those who prefer the mainland but believe in conservation are invited to join MITA. All that is required is a love for Maine’s wild islands. This organization is well aligned with our Small Point land conservation efforts and a great resource for Maine residents and vacationers alike. For more information visit www.mita.org or download their app.
Hope to see you there on the 30th! And, many thanks in advance to Sam Adams and Bob Kennedy for their help in organizing this event.
Whit Mitchell’s old boat, RED TIDE, is for sale. The only all-fiberglass boat in the fleet, this boat has been on the dry for about a decade, but used to win countless races! It is need of lots of TLC, but can be brought up to speed without too much trouble. Rudder is missing but Matt Brewer assures us it is more than salvageable! Bring this vessel back to her former glory. Contact Whit for pricing and details. firstname.lastname@example.org
It is finally warming up in Maine! Stay tuned for updates from your new Commodore, David Coates. The search is still on for a Vice Commodore. The calendar has been updated, check it out! Get those boats ready, it’s almost summer…
The Commodore has also created a very helpful PDF 2016 SPYC Schedule if you’d like to print it out or share it with others.
