Two of the crew members on the Kalitan V, in the Monhegan Race, Maine, summer 2009.
I recently was lucky enough to make my first trip to Five Islands in Maine. Marianne’s famliy vacationed here when she was growing up (she actually used to babysit for the gentleman on the left in this image) and subsequently her son Randy (my husband) also vacationed here for a week or so every summer. The Kalitan V is docked at Five Islands and its owners, Doug and Anne, were kind enough to host Randy & me for a night on the island in their home. I’m glad our hats were able to keep their heads toasty warm during this summer’s sailboat race.
