The Pender Post would like to apologize to Davy Rippner for not giving him credit for the choir photos used in the photo montage on page 15 of the July issue.

Sorry Davy

Cover Story

Teddy II

by Mike Wiley

Our August cover is another photo from Michelle Marsden. The photo features, as Michelle says, an “idyllic sail aboard Teddy II.” At the time of the photo, Teddy II and the Marsdens were participating in what had been the annual Frank Fredette Memorial Gaffers Race. Unfortunately the “annual” part of the race has been temporarily put on hold due to the pandemic.

The Teddy II is a gaff-rigged Schooner owned and built by Michelle and her husband, Kevin. At 37 years old Teddy II is indeed a long time member of the Marsden family. The three of them, Michelle, Kevin and Teddy II, have participated in several Frank Fredette Memorial Gaffers races, and look forward to its resumption in less trying days to come.
