Lightfoot & Albatross II

 

A multihull (Lightfoot) from Brisbane, Australia participated in the BC Multihull Society New Castle Island sail in on July 16th.   Owners Graham Shaw & Michelle Riedlinger came to the group picnic Saturday night and shared with us some of their journey adventures.    Other highlights of the event were seeing Richard Wood’s new power catamaran and Mark Coulter’s new triamaran Albatross II.  In spite of the rather soggy weather, twenty five people attended the dinner.   President, Bob Davis managed to get us the picnic site by the main pavilion in which the BBQ pit as well as the picnic tables were under cover.  This was much appreciated as there was quite a downpour at times during the evening.  It was an enjoyable time in spite of the weather since NewCastle Island has lots of walking trails with beautiful views of water and mountains.
