Nine TSACBA members transported a variety of boats for the display at Newcastle’s Wooden Boat Festival at the Port of Newcastle. All the boats parked on land provided an interesting display for the many visitors. Little Miss Canada V, owned by Jeff & Josie Hughes, took the plunge and entertained the crowd with her speed and performance on the choppy waters of Lake Ontario.

This is a great little show with lots of side attractions in a very pleasant location. Look for next year’s date on our list of 2015 events posted on the website early in the new year.
