Most of us who've enjoyed the sight of Harwichport's appealing little harbor have seldom gone a-sailing; even fewer have sailed from here, but everything about the scene, from the ever-changing movements of the boats to the glimpse of the ocean beyond, speaks to the romantic in us. 

Because of its almost perfect circle, a retired sea captain, after the Civil War, created a ½ mile race track around a pond. After damage from several storms to the southern point close to shore, the town fathers decided to create a harbor and move the race track. So, a channel was cut, and the pond dredged. "Wychmere" comes from a cottage colony established in Harwich in the 1880's.
