Results – Laser Western Canada Masters Championships

Racing

Congratulations to Lewis Otereulo, who with 16 pts, won all the races to win the WC Masters. Light air was the name of the game this past weekend. L.O.’s speed up and down the course made it difficult to pass him as reflected in how little it happened. Doug Bell was 2nd with 18 pts, Lammens 3rd-24 pts, Ben Pickford 4th-24 pts, Barry Tee 5th-26 pts, Pat Byrns 6th -26 pts, Duncan Cook 7th-33 pts, Dave Elliott 8th-35 pts, Timur Rudnitskiy 9th-47 pts and JDE 10th-99 pts to round out the top 10. Thank you to Mike Heseltine, Payton, Tanys, Sydney and Ellyn Byrns, Leigh and Margot Campbell, John Barry, and Imbaw Storer for all of the hospitality and good racing. Sincerely, Mark Lammens – Regatta Chair.

Overall standings as well as results by Masters category are posted on the Regatta Page of this site.  Masters pics are loaded on the Photo Gallery page.

Congratulation to Sydney Byrns, who wrapped up the overall winning position in the Laser Fleet on Sunday.  Ben Pickford just managed to hang on to 2nd place (and his tiller extension!!) ahead of Pat Byrns, despite a mechanical breakdown and dip in the lake leading to a dnf in the last race.  The Double handed fleet saw the 29ers out race the Laser 2 and the competition was fierce in the Optimist fleet, with both Ellen Byrns and Nick Otereulo taking at least one win!  Again thanks to Mike, Leigh, Margot, Warren and John for making the whole weekend happen!  The full results are now posted on the website on the Regatta page of this site.
