The Barton Boat Club fleet gets under way, moving out toward the starting line of the race course that circles Barton Pond. No fair-weather sailors, these sportsmen pursue the thrills of scudding before the wind far into the winter until freezing weather forces them to quit for the year. A few of the hardier members have adopted ice-bating as a cold-weather substitute for sailing and thus have year-around sport.

When the Barton Boat Club decided last winter to adopt a uniform sailboat design, Malcolm Brown went to work in his basement shop at 1910 Hill St. to provide the new vessels. One hull (above right) is nearly complete and Brown (left) is busy on another. The boats, called sloop-rigged Rhodes Bantams, are 14 fee long, wide of beam, and carry a large amount of sail for their size. They are considered fast and smooth sailing craft by enthusiasts, who believe they will prove ideal for the gusty, variable winds at Barton Pond. The Club hopes to have six in the water next season.
