Wallace R. MacAsKill
Our club is named in honour of a St. Peter's native who followed his boyhood passions beyond our shores. WR MacAsKill went on to become an internationally recognized marine photographic artist, a successful commercial photographer, and an enthusiastic and successful racing sailor. He exhibited and won international salon awards for his unique 'magic' photographic images of coastal and offshore fishing life. For several terms he served as Commodore of the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron in Halifax where he lived for most of his career. Many of that club's perennial trophies bear his, and the name of his racing boat, Highlander.
