The Labour Day Weekend was held on September 3-5 at the Belwood Lake Sailing Club near Fergus (outside Guelph).
If you've got some photos, send them in!
The winds were very strong on Saturday: no races were held. The winds were not entirely wasted however.
It was raining, so we held the potluck dinner in the B.L.S.C. clubhouse.
The AGM was held later in the evening.
Since it was still raining after the AGM was over, we had to settle for huddling around a propane heater in the clubhouse.
The weather was better on Sunday: we actually got some sunny weather for part of the day, and the wind wasn't quite as fierce as Saturday. But there were plenty of sudden gusts, and they took their toll on the participants!
Paul and Mike manned the B.L.S.C. safety boat. There were pleny of capsizes and equipment failures to keep them busy.
Shelley accepts a tow after the line attaching her main sail to the top of the gaff failed.
Sunday evening was much drier, so those who were staying until Monday were able to enjoy a fire.

Thanks to Lorne and Hanzo for volunteering to serve as the race committee, and to Paul and Mike for manning the safety boat. And of course, thanks to B.L.S.C. for hosting the event.
