Canada Day boat race

The weather was perfect in Grise Fiord this Canada Day.  One of the community events is a sailboat race for kids, held on the pond in the middle of town.  Kids build their own boat and they race them across.  I missed the start of the race- my balcony looks out on the pond but I guess the crowd was keeping an awed hush during the race.  Here are some photos from the end:

The boats are pretty impressive!  The winds were light but they were all moving well.  Love the little flags on some of them.
