Now although, through circumstances beyond my control, which I don't wish to go into, I was unable to join in the race to Saint Pierre from Halifax.
I t started here in Halifax on July 10 2010 and with a solid and steady 15 - 25 knot wind the race was completed by the first boat in just over 29 hours. If I'm not mistaken the first over was Derek Hatfields "Spirit of Canada".
Anyway, I was at least fortunate enough to go out on the harbour and photograph the start aboard Ann Aclands A31 Anticipation, which I sail as regular crew out of the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron.
