On Saturday, July 7 the Sydenham Lake Canoe Club competed in its first Regatta of the season at Gananoque. On a day with mixed weather, Sydenham Lake paddlers took to the course in fine fashion. The competition hosted by the Gananoque Canoe Club for Bantam, Pee Wee and Atom class paddlers went off without a hitch.
