Photo credit: Andrew Phinney. I had inquired how it was going with getting the moorings done. I read about the breakdowns and weather issues. Andrew sent me this. Great Shot. We have not seen any Alligators yet, but we are in the vicinity. Sailing up the Alligator River tomorrow. Little palm trees are being seen here and there. Definitely keeping ahead of winter.

You will see lots of buoys spread around the boat yard in the next number of days as RBC is doing its annual support of the SJ Dragon Boat Festival. In the next few days we have to put buoys in the water and lay out the course. The dragon boats will be delivered to the Public Wharf on Sunday and then team practices start, so RBC in under the gun.
Lots of work goes into our support including tugging boats to their moorings, buoy preparation, course prep and maintenance and on the day, start and finish boats for officials, ETC. If you would like to be part of the action and improve your knot tying and understand of rigging a mooring you can let Commodore Daryl know.
This is the last festival so let’s make this this best one. More info on the festival at http://www.sjdragonboat.ca/main.html
