I had a great relaxing weekend crewing on a sailboat for two days of fun racing. In the end we managed to place 4th, but that really wasn't to important. Meeting wonderful people and enjoying the beautiful waters of Canada was the primary goal. The race was hosted by the St. Andrews Yacht Club, and we not only had perfect weather, although lacking in some wind, but I also made great new friends and and rested my sore left arm.
The town of St. Andrews is absolutely lovely. I did not get a chance to explore it at length, but walking the small streets and seeing all the hustle and bustle of tourists made for a warm and fuzzy feeling. The little harbor was definitely busy with sailing vessels and all of the whale watching tours. The whales are starting to show up more frequently in the Bay of Fundy and this port is a major destination for whale watchers. The Mackerel are running so the Seals are out in force. This area is just spectacular and one worthy of checking out.
