Ten boats carrying about 45 adventurous hunters participated in the Yacht Club’s inaugural Whale Hunt on Saturday. The mission of the hunt was to capture the whale that was recently spotted on the lake.

Each boat was given instructions and a packet to fill and return to the starting point at Diamond Point Park. Points were calculated based on items found and successful answers to observations while on the hunt.

The results are as follows:

  • 31 points: Harold and Beverly Willard and Steve and Sheryl Davenport
  • 30 points: Todd Stover and Lori Blanchard
  • 30 points: Jully Martilla
  • 29 points: Eddie Rayes
  • 29 points: Rose Gold
  • 29 points: Houston O’Malley
  • 28 points: Rich and Sue Hoover
  • 28 points: Anita Long
  • 26 points: Ila Goldstein
  • 24 points: Yacht Club Commodore Dave Dain and crew

The Whale Hunt is the brainchild of Yacht Club members Paul Hawker and Teresa Fidler, who served as Hunt Masters and greeters and tallied the results of yesterday’s event.

The Yacht Club has more events planned for this year. A current list of events are posted on the club’s website at The club is open to all Canyon Lake residents and membership does not require boat ownership.
