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 Wallace MacAskill served as Commodore of the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron in Halifax, the city where he lived for most of his career. Many of the Royal Nova Yacht Squadron's perennial trophies bear his name, and that of his racing boat Highlander on the winner's plates.
Fellow sailors, please introduce yourselves to us if you are visiting St. Peter's. Join us for a Wednesday night race, or one of our special annual events.
