If you have been itching to settle your 2019 racing calendar, you are in luck because here are the dates and locations for the 2019 Championship Regattas.
2019 Canadian Nationals will be held in conjunction with the Prairie Wind Regatta, Sat. & Sunday, July 13 and 14. More information to follow or check on the Newell Sailing Club website in a while. If you are planning on camping at Kinbrook Island section "I" will likely have some sites held in reserve (by phone for this event). There will be complimentary tent camping on the club's lease during this event.
2019 Seaspray North Americans will be held in Osoyoos, BC at the Lake Osoyoos Sailing Club on Sept 13, 14 and 15th. More information to follow or check on the Lake Osoyoos Sailing Club website. Remember to book your accommodations. Pre Registration on the club website will likely be available a little later.
We hope you will plan to attend one or both of these events this year.
Recently we found out that North Sails lost our race sail pattern. This is unfortunate if you are looking to purchase a new set of sails. After a couple of conversations with Dennis at North in Vancouver there is some hope that either a new pattern (design) can be made or the old pattern is found. Perhaps we may have to look for a new sail maker. If any of you have some thoughts on this issue let us know.
All for now.
