29 Sep

After two full days of sailing in variable conditions Bob Boutilier of Bedford, NS became the Soling 1M Canadian Champion for 2019. Gary Bugden was just two points behind in second and Janice Anderson was third.

The fall weather was near perfect allowing Race Director Jim Goddard to set competitive windward, leeward courses for thirty-six very close races. Click Here to download the full results.

Thanks to volunteer helpers Silvia Goddard, Henry Ng, and Jamie Ferguson whose help made the regatta run so smoothly.

The annual Bill Traill Regatta was held on June 9, 2019, bringing together the club to share memories of Bill and a fun day of sailing. It was a beautiful day, with light winds to start and building through the day. A ‘Terra Beata Blueberry juice’ toast to Bill was held and the day’s sailing was paused for a snack of fruit and vegetable trays prepared by Barb Lovitt and Ben Rusi.

Don McDermaid told of his funniest memory of Bill sailing his boat in Sullivan’s Pond and doing so poorly.  He passed off his boat and asked someone else to sail it and see what was wrong with it. The boat won the next two races and Bill surmised that there wasn’t anything wrong with it.

Extra thanks to Ben Rusi who also took time to repair the three launching wharves and made a new table for the utility pole. Ben is a great promoter of sailing at the Cranberry Pond site and along with Victor Lovitt makes it possible for us to sail there in comfort.
