Punts race between inclement weather

Published on August 9, 2014

After a delayed start, the 2nd annual Grand Punt Race - Townies vs. Baymen - has started in St. John’s Harbour.

The races were scheduled to start at 10:00 A.M. Saturday morning but were postponed due to weather. They did begin at 12:00 P.M. but with increasing chance of thunder storm, it’s uncertain if the three planned races will all finish.

The races are organized by The Narrows Group, a group dedicated to enhancing, preserving and protecting the entrance to St. John’s harbour.
