Allegra Boverman/Gloucester Daily Times. The Essex Bay Sailing Club arrives at J.T. Farnham's in Essex on Friday for their annual lunch there. The group of about 22 kids, five student instructors, four instructors and two volunteers, were out sailing around Conomo Point for about an hour and a half in the rain beforehand. Next Friday is Pirate Day for the club and they will be dressed as pirates as they complete their sailing season. Instructors come to the aid of some of their students who got stuck in the salt marsh.
