The first of the Commodore's Sunday Series was

The wind was strong with an occasional
Some spectators asked good questions and one
sailed my boat for a while.
We only finished three races but we got in lots
of practice while one or the other of us was either adjusting or

It was lots of fun!
John Y. showed up with his brand new Chevy Volt.
He announced that he is going to host an AC

Marine Modelers of Toronto.
Whoops … looks like that club has stolen John's
I found a NOR for an annual regatta starting this
year that honors Ray Davidson – International One Meter regatta
