late-breaking Wayfarer news
from Canada and abroad:

2014 in Review!

This beautiful scene was just one of thousands of 2014's great North American Wayfarer moments, some of which Al will be showing as background at tonight's CWA Annual General Meeting at TS&CC. I have finally found a way not to waste that work I have put in on just one fleeting appearance as background. Click here to enjoy this show at your convenience in an album I have posted on Flickr.

Fare well, Andy!
We'll meet again upon some distant shore!

Picture pages that remember Andy's lovely presence among us Wayfarers are now on line.

Recalling Jim Fletcher, the Wayfarer

Michigan's Jim Fletcher passed away this past September after being with us Wayfarers for all too short a time. The above photo shows Jim and his son whipping up Smith Island's Big Thorofare in W453 Woodwind, his beloved wooden Wayfarer. A selection of memorial pics has now been posted.
