This summer, Jan and I have spent a number of days boating our local waters on Dulwen.  We became reacquainted with Pender and Saturna Islands.  Pender offered a couple of interesting venues for the boaters and woodworkers alike.

Firstly there was the first ever Hope Bay Boat Fest in June. This event was a great opportunity for wooden boat aficionados.  Stay tuned for 2014, it will only be better and West Wind hopes to be involved.

Secondly, the Fall Fair in August offered a slice of old country style farm fun.  Congratulations to customers, David MacKenzie and Sergei Petrov for their winning entries in the Wood Working Division.
