S/V Zhai Mo 1 update from John Bell

Good Morning Joey,

The sailing vessel from China “Zhai Mo -1” at the Railways has yet to depart Gloucester Marine Railways.

U. S. Government has extended vessels stay due to injury
Captain Zhai Mo suffered from his ladder fall several weeks ago.

Cape Ann women and men continue to help in extraordinary ways as warm hosts.

Test sails in the harbor continue. Hopefully the vessel will depart in the days ahead for its long, safe voyage back to China. And Captain Mo’s condition improves.

Very best,

Race Boat Haul Out

The IDRC is planning to haul out the race boats this Sunday, December 12th, 2021 at 8 AM and we need your help.  Give us an hour or two to haul and flip the dories on the dock at Maritime Gloucester.  We will temporarily store the dories there until we can find a permanent home.  No trailers or towing for now, just lend a hand to move the dories.

Hope to see you all there!

How about a warm blanket with one of my photos on them.  They are warm and cozy, here is example of one of my favorites.

I will be at the Elks Craft Show on Sunday, December 12, 2021 and you can go also see these blankets at Arts Abound at 21 C Lexington Avenue, Magnolia, Gloucester, MA.
