I delivered the Cooper Cup to Stephen Cooper at our book club last night. He had asked that photos of the winning sailboats be applied to the back of the wall hanging and has plans to keep this photo record updated as the years go by. The winner of the sailing race will be able to keep the Cooper Cup for one year.
Let me help you to read the names of the four winning boats already applied to the back. Aeolus for 2002, Misty for 2003, Frenzy for 2004, and Misty for 2005.
This year's Cooper Cup sailing race will take place on Saturday June 3, 2006 in the famous and beautiful North Channel, located between Manitoulin Island and Ontario's mainland. The front view of the Cooper Cup can be seen in my May 23 blog entry.
