Gorillas in the Mist

GORRILLAS IN THE MIST. Well not quite. There may or may not have been gorillas out there. The day scheduled for our club sail around Harwood Island began with the Beach Gardens' Marina blanketed in a thick, pea soup fog, light wind and a forecast that offered little hope for an early change. By noon, the day had changed into a beautiful day. Unfortunately, the crews were off doing other things in this wonderful place we call home. Even the birds were grounded!

The skipper looks longingly toward Texada with nothing but white to look at.

Wow! The Junior Sailing Team went to the Pumpkin Bowl on the weekend, performed against some stiff competition and placed in the top 10. The 420 results are below. The Opti sailors also competed showing very well. With a 3rd place in the Opti sailing, an 8th and a 10th place in the 420 class, and a lot of fun, the team was impressive. Stay tuned for photos.
