From the Archives (1965): An AlbaCruise in Killarney by John Lash

The following adventure tale is exerpted from the 1965 CAA Year Book. Albacores were relatively new to Canada at that point (the first having been brought over from England around 1958) but the 4th Annual Canadian Championships were held that summer at Windermere on Lake Muskoka, with 72 boats participating! (Killarney Adventurer John Lash tied for 12th.)
