The hurricane and rain held off for a beautiful final day, albeit light winds. PRO Colin Mann did an outstanding job of getting in 12 very good races with square lines. Michael O'Connor arranged for the ever popular dunk tank, fabulous food, a magician, and the highlight of a freshwater boat/child washdown at the end of each day by the Lunenberg and District Fire Truck!
