Buckmaster Pond

Skippers, Rosemary Lake has become heavily weeded, so it was decided to check out Buckmaster Pond, in Westwood, MA, as an alternate sailing site.  Paul Mercer, Herb Dreher and I went there last Friday to decide if it was acceptable.  We found a large pond with about 30 yards of pebbly beach.  The pond was largely weed free (much, much better than Rosemary).  There is a parking lot next to a large lawn area which is between the parking lot and the beach where we will said.  You will have to wade-in to launch, but the pond bottom is firm.  We think it is a good place to try out next weekend for the double DF95 Series regattas.  

Again, next Sunday, starting at 10:00am, we will be racing DF95’s at Buckmaster Pond, not Rosemary Lake.  See you there!

Buckmaster Pond is on Pond Road off of Route 109 in Westwood.  It is a little over 2 miles from where Route 109 intersects with highway 95/128, if you want to come on the highway.
