The Bras d’Or Lakes Festival is going gangbusters around Cape Breton Island from June 25-September 18th.
and Dr. Paul was invited to demonstrate/teach Yolo Boarding (Stand Up Paddling) this week
at the Baddeck Yacht Club Regata.
The sailing races were just ending. Beers and bbq were going strong inside the Yacht Club and
on the deck. Sailors were coming upstairs to hear the Celtic Cowboys Band…and it was
announced that Dr. Paul would be demonstrating Yolo Boarding.
All week the rain and wind was strong and this afternoon was no exception. The rain had
stopped, mercifully, but the wind was gusting and bursts of laughter would come from the deck
as sailors capsized in the last race of the day–reserved for the sailing instructors.
Many people watched the Yolo with food and beer in hand, and a few young sailors
asked for a lesson.
Tanner was the first student and he managed to stand up and paddle to the delight of his friends.
The Bras D’Or Lakes Festival is Island wide and there is a good website with full schedule at www.brasdorlakesfestival.com.
