Friday night at PCYC
Paul Robinson photos
|Our Winnipeg guests of
honour got the grand Toronto waterfront tour aboard Jim's yacht.
|More work for our
Jury: Mark Taylor who had his rudder surgically removed by a port-tacker
while lying 7th well into the day's final race asked for - and got - redress: a 7th-place finish in race 8.
|One more day and one
more race to go. Ian and Kevan have already won the 2004 Worlds but
second remains wide open, depending on what tomorrow brings: If we get
a race, we will get a second drop race, something that will appeal to
Robin Barker (2nd from left) and Guy Hacon (red shirt)
who have two races they would dearly love to forget.
|The Notice Board
remains a popular attraction.
|The usual group has
its place next to the bar ...
... all staked out. It's a small world: Terry Gregg (standing beside the guy in the gray shirt at right), the 1961 Canadian Wayfarer champion and the original owner of Dave Hansman's Banshee (W282), turns out to be best friends with Uncle Al's next-door neighbour, Athol Blair, in Oakville. He had recognized Al's boat on the front lawn as a Wayfarer years ago, and decided to come to visit when he heard about the Worlds - something that didn't exist when Terry was in Wayfarers....
|Time to relax after
two tough Friday races. And since we won't get the new World champion
together at the awards - Kevan having to go back overseas Saturday
afternoon - we should point them out here: Ian Porter is on the far
left and his ace crew, Kevan Gibb, is the one wearing the blue cap on
|John Dowling (l)
and Kit Wallace (r) get straightened out by John Weakley.
|Uncle Al in a rare
serious moment, trying to remember where he left his camera bag
|No such worries for (l to r) Marc
Bennett, Peter and Alex Rahn
|Diane Zaremba attracts
a crowd as she opens up shop with Guy Hacon first in line.
|Liz Feibusch ...
|... is next, much to
her crew, Frances Lilley's amusement - amusement which she shares with
Stewart Reed (r).
|Stephan sits while his
son, Troels, gets set with the camera.
|Similarly, Ian Harley (l)
will be photographed by his helm, Jay Colville.
|Brian Lamb's turn
|Hours later, the sun
has set on (l to r) Barbara, Karen and John, but still ...
|... Diane keeps
slaving away with a smile, this time capturing Alex Rahn ...P117
|... and his father,
|See!!?? She's still
smiling as John Weakley rounds out her evening's work.
|A quiet PCYC harbour
|... Friday ends in a last golden blaze of sunshine, that ... ...|
|... transforms even
the "Four Sisters" into beauties.
|And a lovely sunset it was.|
