Hey Al,  News flash for Whiffle! A slightly used Wanderer is at Lake Eustis and available for use in the Midwinters in the non-spinnaker fleet. This is a great boat for someone to single- hand, the fourteen-foot version of Wayfarer.

2014 Storer Trophy goes to Parry Sound

(141207) Meet Sue Pilling and Steph Romaniuk, this year's winners of the Storer Trophy, the Wayfarer equivalent of the Gold Cup. Sailing Chich W397, Steph and Sue won the Ontarios and the Canadians in the early summer and then came 2nd in an extremely competitive US Nationals at Tawas in September. That was enough for a resounding series win even though they had to miss the North Americans later in September at Clark Lake. A pair of Mississauga SC crews, Mike & Marg Duncan, and David & Anne Pugh took 2nd and 3rd respectively out of 25 eligible crews. More here.

Lovely R&R by the Sea

(141104) Six of us enjoyed the some top-class rest and relaxation at the Heffernans' beach house between regattas again this year. Thanks a million, Linda and Jim. More soon.
