Sunday Fall Series
We can now look forward to the Sunday Fall Racing series which starts this Sunday the 21st at 1:30 sharp. We are still looking for Barge volunteers for this series.
VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED TO host Fridays, RC Wednesdays, September Blender Regatta, Fall Regatta and Sunday Fall Series
Fridays are a great opportunity to host your family, colleages and friends at your club while earning your volunteer credits (3 credits/volunteer spots per night). Please note that you'll need to register as a team (i.e. we have set it up so that there is only one registration necessary - thinking this is more convenient for everybody). Our PRO has been excellent - so you can count on all the support you need to run the Races.
Dates still available:
Family Fun Friday
Sunday Fall Series
- September 21
Anybody interested in volunteering to update the Trophy Awards from 2010 till now would be great. Please contact Tim at email@example.com
Thanks for your support!

WNR Snowy Finale
Last week three crews sought honour and glory as the WNR series came to a close. Against a snowy backdrop of Heritage Park, these brave souls fought near freezing conditions, light shifty winds and each other. Regardless of the racing results, these three crews are all winners for having the fortitude to ignore Snowtember and show mother nature that sailors will not be scared of mere frigid temperatures.
Fall Regatta was a fun weekend of eventful sailing. There were green and championship fleets for a total of 7 Optis and Nathan Lemke came in first. There were 4 full rig Lasers out and we had 5 Fireballs racing as well of which Hamish Ferguson took home the 1st place honors. In the San Juan 21 fleet there were 8 SJ21's and 1 Santana 20. Colin Silkstone and Chris Lemke battled furiously for first place with Lemke in
Anitra III prevailing as the winner. Winds at time were both gusty and very shifty and proved difficult for most sailors. I would like to thank all those that helped out to make this another fun event.
