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.
