Last week, my huband Rick and 4 friends raced in the Lake Ontario 300 Race on Sea Jay, Jim Johnstone's 30' Hunter Sailboat. Many of you will know that I surprised Rick with a small sail boat last year and that he has been Racing at the Club on Mondays and Wednesday with Jim, Neil, and Peter. The 4 of them, along with Jim's old friend Frank set out from the Port Credit Yacht Club last Saturday and sailed 300 miles around Lake Ontario. The sailed up and around Main Duck Island, then along the South Shore of Lake Ontario to the Niagara River Mark and back to Port Credit. They arrived home on Tuesday in the wee hours around 2 o'clock. Congratulations to them and .... keep practicing for first place next year!
