Last call for participants - North Bay Weekend
(160623)  Hello All: We are issuing our “last call” to all potential participants for the North Bay Wayfarer Weekend, July 1  July  4.  At the present time we have 6 participants that will form the nucleus of a strong racing weekend (Dave/Anne, Sue/Steph, Jan/Alannah, Mike/Marg, Uncle Al, Dave/Dave) but it would be nice to see a few more boats in the lineup, so please pass this invitation along to anyone you think may be interested in joining us for a fun weekend of sailing.  The thing to remember about this event is that there are 4 events – take part in whatever fits your schedule.  This year, it all kicks off with the Canada Day race July 1st on Lake Nipissing and ends with the July 4th Poker Event on Trout Lake.  What better way to celebrate two national holidays?   more here


Very competitive fleet enjoys great winds
at Conestoga's Warm Water Regatta


(160621)  After a fine race-training day was given us by Thomas Fogh on the unfortunately windless Saturday at the Conestoga SC, the winds returned just right for Sunday's 4-race Carling Trophy series. When the spray had settled, Oakville's David and Anne Pugh (above) had edged out three teams that ended within two points of the lead. Falling just one little point short of victory were  North Bay's Dave2 (Hansman and Richardson) while Toronto's Alastair Ryder-Turner with son, Andrew, was another point back in series 3rd after winning a tie-breaker over reigning Canadian champions, Sue Pilling and Steph Romaniuk of Parry Sound. Results and pics here.

The Pughs - with regatta organizers, Leo Van Kampen (l) and CSC Race Captain, Mark Dineen -  pose with their hard-earned Carling Trophy.
