I assembled this a few years ago because even I forget some of the boats and events I sailed. Still fond memories; and still making more.


This is in response to those who asked:”Who are you?” It is a least a dimension.Boats have always been a part of my life. Naturally interwoven with the story of Newport.

six meter class meeting

Saturday, March 27, 2010 Toby Rodes arranged a meeting to discuss the events during the upcoming summer. The day started in Bristol at Lars Gluck’s shop where Totem and Flapper are undergoing refits and finishing, which will surely make already fast boats faster.

     Lunch at the Moorings restaurant, then a meeting at the Seaman’s Church Institute to finalize plans for the upcoming sailing season. In attendance were naval architect David Pedrick, Tony Widmann ,who has strongly supported the class by donating a trophy, Tom Fair, owner of “Madcap”; Toby Rodes owner of “Alana”, Peter Muir, Brion Reiff, Molly Savard, owner of “Cherokee”, Bill Doyle, Jens Lange, Andrew Burton,
