  Largest Pumpkin Regatta-world record set by The Windsor Pumpkin Regatta
 WINDSOR, Nova Scotia -- A crowd estimated to be close to 10,000 people lined the Pesaquid Lake to cheer on the 50 pumpkin entrants at the 10th Annual Windsor Pumpkin Regatta -which sets the world record for the Largest Pumpkin Regatta.

   He dedicated his win to his uncle who won last year's regatta, but was disqualified this year when his pumpkin sank during qualifying events Friday, the report said.
  "He told me to get out ahead fast and that's what I did," Cook said. "(And) you need a pumpkin that cuts though the water good -- that's the key."

   In the motorized class, Dani Rippey won first place in his ninth year of competing, the report said.
