A REMINDER: The Friends of the Phoebe's mid-winter special event is Sunday from 2.00 to 4.30 PM in the Kingston Public Library, Johnston Street.
KINGSTON'S 2007 VOLVO YOUTH SAILING ISAF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP REGATTA WEBSITE is slowly evolving.
The Notice of Race is now online. Expect Section 12 to generate considerable flak from team leaders, coaches and parents.
Which doesn't appear to square with Section 15:
LEVELS ARE SERIOUSLY ABOVE NORMAL IN LAKE ONTARIO. About 17" above normal, in fact, which is huge. Surprised? Normally Lake Ontario is at its lowest right now. But right now we're very close to last year's high water mark in August.
Conversely the big lakes upstream -- Lakes Michigan, and Huron and Superior -- are still at way below average levels.
MARINE MUSEUM WATCH: AN ARTICLE AND AN EDITORIAL in today's Whig Standard. Also, here's a link to tonight's Council motion in support of the Marine Museum.
It's interesting that Treasure Island Marina, which is just 6 NM East of downtown Kingston, and all points further East are under the jurisdiction of the much larger Landsdowne (Thousand Islands Bridge) CBSA office, which is about 30 NM from downtown Kingston.
