Saturday July 8 was the third annual Sail Mazinaw. 14 different sailboats and dozens of sailors participated. The weather was very cooperative. There had been repeating thunderstorms through the night, but the skies cleared and a very sailable wind set from the northwest. The fleet included a couple of sailboards, a variety of singlehanded dinghies, and a fleet of keelboats.
Many of the crews met for breakfast at Mazinaw Lakeside Resort. Then later, a few boats made their way to the lagoon in the provincial park for the Friends of Bon Echo barbecue. After an afternoon of sailing, crews and friends met for dock drinks and a meal.
This year's winners of the Mazinaw Cup are single-handed sailors Kerry Skipper of the Lower Lake and Terry Napier of the Upper Lake. The cup will be presented at a separate ceremony in the near future.
