Information From Commodore of the Wallace MacAskill Yacht Club
I have just received this information from Greg Silvers, Commodore of the Wallace MacAskill Yacht Club in St. Peter's. It is for all those of you in the boating community, and it includes some very handy information, so I am passing it along.
I've just had some correspondence with Colin Jackson at Dobson YC, who has put up a web site that will be very useful for us and any sailing visitors to the Cape Breton Island.
They have some of the good info such as chartlets, from the now out-of-print Cape Breton Cruising Guide, available as pdf downloads; tides and currents, weather links, etc etc. It all so very handy and a good start to a comprehensive resource for the boating community.
Colin is seeking input from the Cape Breton sailing community to add up-to-date information.
Suggest all of you check out this site, and share any local knowledge you have for posting on their site.
For any past members of Wallace MacAskill YC who did not receive a notice, we are meeting next on Saturday, Feb 18, at 11 am, at the Bras d'Or Lakes Inn, St. Peter's. If you'd like to join us please let me know in advance if possible. We are always interested in renewing old members, and welcoming new ones.
