Prairie Wind Results

From Don Snell, Newell Sailing Club:

Eight SeaSprays participated in an open weekend sailing time on July 11 and 12 at Newell Sailing Club.  Some impromptu, socially distanced racing took place and the results are shown in the attached photo. 
The weather for the weekend was pleasant and about 8 other boats participated as well.  It is hoped that by next summer the normal Prairie Wind regatta will happen.  
Take a look at the windknife website from Britain again if you are interested in getting a new set of daggerboards.  One of our club members has acquired a set and I also bought another set for a second SeaSpray that I own.  So far I think that they work well and are a real time saver compared to building a set of wood/fiberglass boards.  You still have to fit them into your daggerboard trunks and seal the ends of the aluminum boards.  They do not float so some system of attachment to the boat is necessary.  The next item would be a set of light weight rudder blades.  If any of you find a source let me know.
As far as I know some type of event will happen at Osoyoos the second full weekend of September.  I will keep you posted if and when I learn more about that.
