The wind was a little light at first, but it was a beautiful day to be out on the water.

Poker Race

Photo: Heading Through the Sisters after Picking Up a Card from Hanzo The weather on Wednesday was ideal for the Poker Race. Enough wind to be fun, but not enough to worry the novice sailors.

There are lots more poker race photos.

The Corn Roast

After a busy day of racing, we had to do something with all that shucked corn, announce the winners, and give out the prizes! We met at Hanzo and Ineke's site.

Unfortunately, some light rain later that evening broke up the party. A bear who had been visiting lots of sites in the neighbourhood finally showed up to inspect our clean-up job (he left disappointed).

Photo: Discussing the Route Around Sandy Island On Friday, the weather conditions were ideal for cruising. Some of the diehards were feeling ambituous, while others had more modest ambitions. We were able to come up with a hybrid plan that satisfied everyone,
