2014 Oldtimers Longboard Classic - Next Sunday Afternoon

It's early again this year. The 2014 Cape Cod Oldtimers Longboard Classic will be held at 5 PM on Sunday, August 10th, at Wellfleet's White Crest Beach.

This year there will be a few new rules (see below). Since vintage longboards are getting valuable and harder to come by, any longboard over 9 foot may be used in the contest (without a leash). Collector boards and vintage items should still be available for everyone to drool over. This is intended to be a fun event - not to be taken too seriously. 

The rules...
  • Any longboard (9 feet or longer) regardless of age or condition will be allowed this year.
  • Contestants must be 21 and over. (Lifeguards under 21 accepted) 
  • All boards must be nine (9) feet in length or longer.
  • No leashes / No wetsuits - (If it’s too cold – tough!!!)
  • Tow-ins by Great White sharks will result in immediate disqualification
  • No whining!
This should be a lot of fun, and a good excuse to watch an old art form (and a few old-timers) in action.  If you'd like to compete in this competition, go to the Old Timers website for complete rules and an entry form. 

Check out this video of last year's Classic.

The Cape Cod Canal Centennial (Video)

The 'official' 100th anniversary for the Cape Cod Canal is July 29th. The last 100 years have seen the Cape change dramatically, from a largely agricultural and fishing area to a place that has a significant vacation and retirement population. This video, courtesy of the Cape Cod Times, is of a trip through the Canal in 1927, long before the construction of the current Bourne and Sagamore Bridges.
   

The Cape Cod Canal's Centennial celebration has its own website with an event schedule, a detailed history, and lots of great photos.

A Perfect Day in Eastham

Yesterday I spent a lot of time driving around and enjoying this beautiful town and all it has to offer visitors. The photos below show a couple kayakers on Boat Meadow Marsh during high tide, about to go under the Bridge Rd bridge, and - the art show at the Schoolhouse Museum, a 'green flag' day at Nauset Light Beach, and finishing up with the 'Super Moon', taken from Fort Hill. Amazing! Not shown was time at the Great Pond beach and dinner at Arnold's. It doesn't get much better than that!
