Fortunately the wind picked up Wednesday afternoon so conditions were perfect for the Poker Race. Terry and Marika had things well organized, and the race was started pretty quickly. We had a great turnout: 18 Mirrors sailed in the Poker race.
First it was time to rig the boats, hold the skippers meeting, and pick team partners.
With everyone ready, the race could begin.
While the race was in progress, a tall ship sailed in from Georgian Bay, past the park, and into the sound.
Once both teams had returned to the Harold Point beach, there was still the silly task: transporting a marshmallow round a figure-eight course between each pair of crewmembers without holding it.
The final scores depended on what Poker hand each team had accumulated as well as how fast they finished.
Thanks to all those who took photos: Elaine Richardson, David Hull, Hanzo VanBeusekom, Derek Pugh, Stephen and George Steel.
