Hi Al:


Below is the updated info on the LDR. The current link on the calendar is to info that we sent to you in late winter.


Can you make sure that the Pughs or Alastair get the most improved hats from you before they come up for LDR?... unless you come - we hope! Cus you know, the LDR is all about the "Glory Days." ;)


Thanks in advance 


Sue and Steph 


Events Program:
 Arrive AFTER 5pm at SPS; if arrive after 7pm come right to Sue and Steph's with boat. If you need a place to store your boat you can drop it at our place. Dinner: BBQ at Sue and Steph's.


Saturday: Planned Long Distance Race.

Race: Skippers' meeting 10am. Race at 11am. Will be started from dock, but if fluky winds in channel, we'll run a "rabbit start" further out in the Sound. 2-3hr race with chase boat - charts, bearings and navigational hazards will be provided.

Dinner: out in Parry Sound at local restaurant. Boats stored in locked boat yard overnight and/or possibly on beach.

Trophies: Have LDR Trophy, Most improved Hats, and perhaps have other goodies too.


Sunday: Contingency Day for LDR if foul weather Saturday, or Picnic and Lunch Out to Huckleberry Island, etc. Invite other keelboats, dinghies from SPS, etc. to join us for flotilla that day. Some people plan stay over Thursday and Monday to avoid traffic.


Monday (Holiday): travel home or stay for more sailing, canoeing, stand-up paddle board, etc.


We have confirmed participation from 1) Van Kampens; 2) Pughs; 3) Dave & Dave; 4) Scott Ramsay; 5) Alastair Ryder-Turner; 6) Sue and Steph and possible participation from 7) Al Nichols and Ken Nethercott. Did we miss anyone?? Please let us know if you are interested in attending!
