Stormont Yacht Club opens for season

sportseditor Jun 4, 2014 - 3:34pm

(By Ralph Austin)     The Stormont Yacht Club is off to a slow start this season. The boat launch had to be delayed by two weeks due to the ice in the bays and the cool wet weather.  The first planned event this year was the May 31 Sail Past, where boats of the fleet sailed past the Commodore's vessel and offered a courteous salute. Sail Past represents the official opening of the new season, followed by competitive racing on Saturdays and Sundays through the summer.

The Stormont Yacht Club would like to invite all those interested in learning to sail to come out to the club in Long Sault and experience the joy of meeting new friends and the excitement of sailing a sleek vessel on the Saint Lawrence River.  Boat owners are always eager to take potential sailors out for a beginners cruise.

Unfortunately, we ran out of space in the June 4 edition of The Glengarry News to get this achievement into the newspaper.  Last Sunday, all four Glengarry Gaels football teams won their games.

The mosquitos blanked Russell 31-0, the tykes beat Cornwall #1 with a 35-25 effort, the peewees shut down Cornwall for a 35-0 triumph, and the bantams prevailed 23-6 over Russell.

The Glengarry tykes, mosquitos, and peewees are all tied for first place in their divisions, while the bantams remain perfect at 4-0 for tops in their group and are already guaranteed a home playoff date, with two regular-season matches remaining.

Several pole vaulters from Char-Lan DHS, under the guidance of coach Rory Blackadder, had fine performances at East Regionals track and field last week, led by Brennan Seguin, who broke the midget boys record with a jump of 3.35 m. Emma Pasco won the midget girls event with a 2.40 m effort. Other Char-Lan results: Mackayla Petrie (2.10 m for 4th in midget girls), McKenna Mulhearn (2.25 m for second in junior girls), Ally Lecky (2.70 m for second in senior girls), and Nik Danaher (2.55 m for 4th in midget boys).
