Despite the high water and all the problems we are finally underway with the first regatta of the season hosted by ABYC.
Because of the conditions, adjustments to the schedule had to be made. However, the event turned out great despite mother nature!
The PHRF fleet was amazing with 30 boats turning up to race in the course racing on Saturday. Great turn out in three FS Divisions and one NFS Division. Conditions were variable, but the ABYC RC managed to get three races in and with the division splits there was some pretty close racing!
Conditions dictated the cancellation of the coastal race, but there were about 15 boats registered to race. Awesome participation!
In the PHRF Racer’s team event; 8 teams registered including five from ABYC one from HYC, one from NYC and one from QCYC. Congratulation to the first place team from HYC – Five-Fifteen, Wee Beastie III and Double Vision. Second place when to the team from QCYC – Circe III, Panache and Amelia and 3rd place going to ABYC – 4Tuna, Kaila and Hagar.
Thanks to Brian Chapman of UK Sailmakers Toronto for donating custom duffle day bags as podium awards for the PHRF racing and Team Challenge.
Let’s hope we can get all the clubs to eventually get involved in the team race program – we need change with new challenges- gotta keep it interesting.
