Pathfinder enjoys a lovely June Weekend Sail



This weekend was a busy one – Toronto Brigantine celebrated the Blessing of the Fleet with many of this summers crew and their parents. We also announced the new promotions for the season and the winners of the Deep Sea Award, the Seamanship Award .  Mattheus Fackelmann won the Seamanship Award.  There were two Deep Sea Award winners  this year, Riley King and Theo Tsagaris. Celine Moore won the scholarship Award of $2,500 per year for up to four years, donated by Naval Officers Association of Canada.

All this while work continues on the Playfair to get the Seaman’s Mess rework completed in time for the Toronto Waterfront Festival on Canada Day long weekend and the start of the Summer sailing schedule.  

You will see a lot of the Pathfinder this next week or so … as the crew take the Pathfinder out for training runs – and special group sails like the Parents sails this weekend, some donor recognition sails next weekend, and several other group sails that have been booked between now and the Toronto Waterfront Festival!

 Toronto Brigantine friend and Toronto Harborfront neighbor, Jim Orgill, took the following pictures of the Pathfinder out for an evening sail.From Jim Orgill, Jun 20, 2010: I see your kids were out sailing on Pathfinder this evening [this was in the Toronto Harbour on Jun 20, 2010]…..






….. but they could not beat a little sail boat in a race …..








Contact the TBI office is you are interested in volunteering, want to sail this summer – or want to book a group sail during the Toronto Waterfront Festival this summer!

See you at the Toronto Waterfront Festival this Canada Day weekend – and around the Great Lakes and Georgian Bay this summer!
