Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

Race the Cape 2015 re­sumes to­day fol­low­ing a rest day that saw par­tic­i­pants en­gage in a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties around Cape Bre­ton. “We had peo­ple tour­ing around the Cabot Trail, some vis­ited the Bell Mu­seum, oth­ers went golf­ing and some just re­laxed,” said re­gatta co­or­di­na­tor Jen­nifer Rowe. The more than three dozen en­tries and those in the non­com­pet­i­tive cruis­ing class had all of Wed­nes­day at their dis­posal fol­low­ing the first two legs of the an­nual sail­ing event that saw them race from St. Peter’s to Ben Eoin on Mon­day and from Ben Eoin to Baddeck on Tues­day. Mark Daggett, who skip­pers the New Brunswick-based Shine, said he and his crew wel­comed the op­por­tu­nity to kick back and re­lax. “We all agreed the lay­over day was well needed just to re­lax and en­joy our sur­round­ings and all the fine peo­ple, and mostly just rest up for the next leg,” said Daggett. The third leg of the fives­tage race will see the flotilla make its way from Baddeck to North Syd­ney for the North Sails-Yacht Shop Great Bras d’Or Cup race. On Fri­day, the race de­parts the North­side Yacht Club for In­go­nish, while the fi­nal stage goes from In­go­nish to Syd­ney, where the boats will fin­ish up at the Dob­son Yacht Club in West­mount on Satur­day.
