I'm a square-rig sailor and a hockey guy who appreciates redemption. The news about Laura Gainey pains me greatly. She was washed off the Picton Castle Friday night, prompting a two-day search of the Northwest Atlantic. Laura's dad is Bob Gainey, a lifelong Hab and now Canadiens' G.M. The Picton Castle (homeport, Lunenburg NS) is one of the sweetest barques a-sail, with a crew every other ship envies and a terrific support organization of professionals and volunteers. As the search continues, my thoughts are with you all, just a few hundred nautical miles to your west. Peace.
