Saturday (Sept 22) saw an interesting day of sailing in Steveston BC at the Steveston RC Sailing Club venue of Imperial Landing. At times the winds proved challenging but did not really shift around till towards the end of the day. Speaking of which after getting in a total of 16 races for the first day we saw Bob Lewis in top spot with 23 points, second was Don Martin with 34 and third Brian Woodward with 38.

Sunday (Sept 23) proved to be very interesting as we had to switch to the other end of the dock due to a SW wind. The wind proved to be tricky as sometimes there was flat water but still a nice upwind breeze to challenge all the sailors. We got in another 12 races for the day before calling due to the number of course changes that we needed to make because of the winds. So a total of 28 races for the 2 days.

Everyone knows the old saying of ‘never give up’ and our contestants didn’t as you can see from the full results for the 2 days below.

Thanks again to everyone for making this a success and we look forward to next year!
