You can’t tell from this photo, but we had two days of great sailing at the 2015 edition of the CanAm Regatta held this weekend in Stowe, VT.
The winds were typically shifty, but we had plenty of wind to sail and race hard for two days. In the end Team USA won by a slim 10 points as the score narrows again. We will have to wait another year to engrave Team Canada on the trophy but we can taste it now!
The addition of some great new team members from Ontario made this the strongest Team Canada yet. Jim Goddard from the Halifax Area Model Yacht Club placed first in the individual competition with Bob Boutilier also from HAMYC placing fifth.
Jim Goddard has been the top Canadian every year of the CanAm Regatta compiling an impressive record on a pond that is notoriously fickle.

HAMYC did not have a great result at the Canadians this year.
Time to refocus!
