News of Jane Philpot (now Buckley) – August 2017

It is good to hear news of distant members from time to time and we are glad to be able to report that Jane Philpot (now Buckley, Newnham 1959) continues to enjoy life in Ottawa with her Canadian husband Michael. Both are a little less active now in competitive sailing than in earlier times when Jane (with Michael as crew) won the Y-Flyer Canadian Nationals and was a close 2nd in the Internationals.

Crewed by Lyn Zeidler, Jane also won the Ontario women’s double-handed Championship in Tasers at Toronto (on Lake Ontario), and went on to win the first Canadian women’s double-handed National Championship sailed in Enterprises in Vancouver Harbour (dodging tankers and tugs towing barges!).
