    Default Q Boat #7 launched after rebuild

    My good friend and ski buddy John Burke sent this to me. In these pictures is the first sail of the NG Herreshoff Q Boat #7, "Falcon"
    under sail. John is captain of the for deck and also the bow lookout. You can tell by his expression what kind of a time he is having.

    Wow. Very, very nice.

    Where are the photos taken? Looks like New England.

    Herreshoff gathering in Bristol, RI?

    Falcon, Q-7, was restored some years ago in or near Camden, Maine by John Anderson. She sailed in the 2013 Eggemoggin Reach Regatta. Beautiful. Lovely sight in Penobscot Bay on a blustery day. Sorry to see her leave Maine waters.

    You are correct on that. However, this is a new upgrade for "Falcon" Q7. That is according to John Burke. John is a Herreshoff enthusiast and races in Antigua on Gerald Rainer’s 65′ staysail schooner, Mary Rose was built in 1926 and was the last schooner designed by Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, builder of five America’s Cup winners between 1893 and 1920. Mary Rose usually spends the summer months in New England, before returning to Antigua to attend Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta. This year will be Mary Rose’s fifth consecutive regatta and she has won her class every year. John Burke is the fore deck captain on her.

    Interesting. I saw Mary Rose when she was under repair near here: http://rockportmarine.com/mary-rose/

    Re Falcon: Upgrades to the rig or sails maybe?
