Last summer, we obtained a Sunfish sailboat and Harbourmaster Mark Dryden offered Junior Sailing Lessons. This year, back by popular demand, we obtained two Flying Scots, allowing us to expand this summer’s program.
This program was offered last month, just in time for our “Build It, Sail It” competition (August 6). This inaugural event requires some building supplies (cardboard box, duct tape), time and a little ingenuity! Members are challenged to put together a vessel that is human or wind powered to race the Harbour Center Staff’s (cardboard) boat. The course will be in the harbour. Winner takes all bragging rights! “The humblest craft that floats makes its appeal to a seaman by the faithfulness of her life.” -Joseph Conrad
