Our Photo of the Week comes from Chester where last month foul-weather gear maker Helly Hansen adapted the old carnival ring toss game to entertain the crowd at Chester Race Week using mini throwing buoys for rings. Kristina Gilbert of Port Credit ON, who was working race committee at the regatta, used her mark-setting eagle eye to throw the mini buoy onto the stick seven times for lots of entries into the grand draw.

Which she won!! The prize: a ride on a Volvo Open 60 to Bermuda. Kristina, whose Wednesday racing experience on B36.7s isn’t quite as adventurous as this ride, departs on November 9 when Helly Hansen flies her to Nova Scotia to get onboard. She will pack her video cam and report back on her sail.

Reminder: At CYOB we need your photos to sustain us over the off-season. So please shoot and send them in before the season ends. The photo of the week can be anything photographed on or near your boat, kids, pets, lunch, costumes, racing, cruising, craziness, signs – you pick it and send your photos, with a bit of a back story, to This email address is being protected from spambots.
