Regatta T-ShirtThis issue’s Photo of the Week comes from Roger - here’s what he wrote:

Hello John:

I've been cleaning dresser drawers for space and came across this 1979 LYRA t-shirt. This was my first LYRA Regatta. I remember the Freeman Cup Race was from Rochester NY to Kingston. I sailed with Timmy Pete on his CC29.

I thought it might be fun to see who out there has the oldest regatta t-shirt?

Roger Renaud

Tight FitA new shrink-wrap promises more environmentally conscious

This conference is geared to members and suppliers of the marine industry particularly marina operations. One of the suppliers was Layfield Geosynthetics, offering a new shrink-wrap film called ‘Bioflex MarineShrink’. The Layfield rep that I spoke with described the new product as a more environmentally conscious option (more on what this means, below).

Pursuit DC 235A Great Boat for Canada and Mom Approved Too!

By Jill Snider and Andy Adams

Coming from two different directions, Jill Snider and I met up at Crates Lake Country Boats in Orillia, Ontario to run and review a new Pursuit DC 235, a deep vee dual console boat that is an offshore inspired bow rider with strong fishing overtones and a wide range of family features.
