No lay-off rust on 2022 Nationals winners
Dave Hansman and Dave Richardson at Peterborough SC

2022.08.06  The North Bay team of Dave Hansman and Dave Richardson made themselves right at home as 14 teams came to our newest Nationals venue, the Peterborough SC on Clear Lake July 23-24 for the Canadian Wayfarer Nationals. Even after a long time-out from sailing, Dave and Dave built up an insurmountable lead with 2-1-1-1-1 finishes in Saturday's hot, gusty winds and coasted to victory in the remaining two races in cooler, rainy weather on the Sunday when the forecast horror show of rain and thunderstorms did not materialize. Al's coverage now completed.
