Fine sailing and close finishes highlight
fine 2015 North Bay Wayfarer Weekend

(150630) Three days of fine sailing if not sunshine marked this year's annual North Bay Wayfarer Weekend. Perhaps the most remarkable win came in Saturday's Long Distance Race where the top five boats finishes in a bunch and Sue Pilling with Steph Romaniuk came from far behind less than half a mile from the finish to edge out defending champs, David and Anne Pugh. The next day's 5-race Don Rumble Memorial series featured another big come-back as Al Schonborn and son, David, sailed to fine 3-4-1-1-1 finishes in intermittent rain and gusty winds to grab a share of the Don Rumble trophy with Sue and Steph, the defenduing champs. In Monday's Trout Lake Poker Race, Dave Richardson (bad hip and all) and Kim Rainville nailed a photo finish (above) over Dave Hansman and Eric Grigg and then made it a run-away with two good poker hands. Complete results posted. More pics, reports soon coming.

Another win for David and Anne Pugh:
the U.S. Nationals at Rock Hall

(150624) Oakville's David and Anne Pugh consistently rose to the top at Rock Hall, Maryland in a very competitive fleet of 8 Wayfarers to capture the 2015 U.S. Wayfarer Nationals. Report coming soon. Results, River Race report and all pics posted.
