D’Arcy, Vogler, Sam Mc Launched

by on April 19, 2012

The weather was perfect for the re-launching of the Oarlock and Sail Wooden Boat Club’s fleet last saturday.  After a liberal dousing of champagne on the bows by Ms. Leanne O’Grady, the transom of D’Arcy dipped into the cool waters of English Bay for the first time in two years.  Ms. O’Grady was first to take to the oars and many members had a chance to row the sixteen-foot vessel.  All agreed that she is a fine rowing craft.

The Sam Mc and Vogler were taken sailing and rowing respectively.  A fine breeze filled the Sam Mc’s Sail and she tacked and jibed more than a few times.  Many members took the Vogler for a tour of the harbour.  All in attendance seemed pleased to be out in a boat or mingling dockside.  All three vessels now rest dockside awaiting their next voyage.

D'Arcy re-launched!
