    Rumor has it that the Akalaria Open 40 and also Rich Wilson’s new Open 60 Great American IV will be in the Penobscot Bay Rendezvous races starting tomorrow, and I hope to see them in action. More info:

    Hey Ben, Winterport Marine now has the basic info, some good pics and a video of the Trans Cat 26, I was unable to get the video to play on my iPad, but here’s the link:

    Thanks, Peter! You’re going to like the video too; there’s even a clip of a good size tractor driving off. But you have to view it in Internet Explorer and it took nearly 10 minutes to “buffer” on my usually fast connection.
    Meanwhile, here’s the link to the photos and specs page:

    This sort of thing strikes me as a neat opportunity for passing cruisers, and I say that inspired by Hartley & Leslie of S/V Asta, who can found this coming weekend helping to cook thousands of “bugs” for the 71st annual Maine Lobster Festival:
