2022 Frostbite Regatta Final

These final results include the results from October 30 together with the eight races sailed on November 6.

What a fabulous day for sailing on Sullivan’s Pond, 22 degrees and wind throughout the day. It started out with a steady southwest wind at about 12 km and, became lighter and shiftier with some stiffer gusts and started to fade by the end of the day.

Bob White had a better second day and finished fifth.

Brian Lugar finished fourth to end his rookie season with a strong performance just three points out of third held by Gary Bugden.

Bob Boutilier rebounded from a breakdown on Day 1 to finish second and in top spot was Jim Goddard.

Our AGM is slated for Sunday November 20, 2022. Everyone is welcome to attend, details will be emailed and posted soon.

2022 Frostbite Regatta

A challenging day of racing highlighted by the largest turnout of the season with fifteen boats on the line for five heats. Sunday was day one of the two day Frostbite Regatta with day two scheduled for Sunday November 6, 2022 starting at 1 pm.

Despite the travails of 180 degree wind shifts, large areas of vanishing wind pressure some close racing and great fun were the order of the day. Only a few points separate third place from seventh and day two of the regatta could see some big changes in the order. Dropped races will carry forward and with nice weather and wind we could get another ten races completed next week.

See you next weekend when our season is scheduled to wrap up!

2022 Club Championship

Super light winds at times made it seem like a regatta in Stowe, but we managed the minimum number of races in the time limit. The official results are a little different than those announced at the pond with Brian Wilmshurst edging out Mike Kennedy by one point for 4th, and nudging Gary Bugden out of the top five. Brian was he popular winner of the sixth race which vaulted him up the score sheet.

Thanks to Bob Boutilier for acting as OD for the day, to everyone who sailed, and also to those who stopped to watch.

2022 Labour Day Regatta

A couple of members sailed their first regatta today with Ward Slobodesky and Francois Dardenne one the line for their first major event. Ward sailed #57 while Boots took care of the Race Director duties and for the first day on the water did well. Some major shifts, some light patches, some bumps but all turned our well. Doc even had to swim out to the island to fetch his boat forcing him to miss the final race.
