KENORA, ONTARIO – Celebrating 80 years of gracefully cruising Lake of the Woods, Ontario, a small group of invited guests gathered Saturday, 10 September 2011, at the Kenora docks where the historic Grace Anne II Yacht calls home to celebrate the momentous occasion along with the 85th birthday of Duncan Forlong, son of the yacht’s namesake, Grace Anne.

Among the group of guests who enjoyed a celebratory evening cruise complete with twin birthday cakes amidst clear skies and plentiful sunshine were Duncan and Gayle Forlong, His Worship Mayor Dave Canfield, and Morris Chia, owner of the Grace Anne II Yacht.

In recognition of its 80th anniversary, His Worship Mayor Dave Canfield presented a framed certificate to Chia, exclaiming that the “... [Grace Anne II] is a significant part of our history and we are fortunate to have Her elegance adorn our great waters!”
