Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Some photos from the 91st annual Anglican Church Regatta, hosted this summer at Lumina Resort.   The wind was cool -- and played absolute havoc with the canoe races, where some of the young paddlers had an over-abundance of Spirit and an under-abundance of steering, but a good time was had all the same!

 Steve really got into the action in the Mens' Single Canoe race!

There were plenty of entries -- some of the swim races had to be divided into two heats! And since it was warmer IN the water than out of it, that wasn't a problem!

crab race in action!
Our favourite race had to be the very challenging Crab Race -- an open race for any age of paddler, this is a toughy.  The paddler sits in the bow, facing the bow -- so the rest of the canoe stands up behind like the tail of a labrador retriever and waves in the on-shore wind!

congratulations Graeme on winning that tricky race!
Young Graeme put away the competition to win this one!

He also did very well with his cousin Lindsay in the Hands Only race.  It would seem he has a knack for these less usual ways to paddle!

Congratulations to everyone who came and took part -- even if you simply cruised through the Bake Sale and signed up for the Silent Auction Items, you helped make the day a success!
