Investigate rowboat towing sailboat

Tasked to investigate vessel under tow by row boat off of Petticoat Creek in Pickering. Tasked to go to Rouge River area and if nothing spotted to head back into FB Marina to see if any vessels were towed in there.

After checking out the lake and then Tenkey marina, asked by JRCC to check out FBYC.

Back at FBYC we talked to someone at club who seemed to feel it was the sailing school towing in a vessel with one of their RHIBs.

PARU stood down.
