Masters – Western Canadian Laser Champs Regatta this Weekend June 14/15

Racing

Coming up this weekend June 14/15 is the Western Canadian Masters Laser Championships.  Notice of race and registration form are available for download from the BSSC.ca website Regatta page.    PLEASE NOTE one change to the Notice – Racing will begin at 10:30AM saturday morning.  This delays the start time by 30 minutes from the originally indicated 10AM start.  All else remains the same.   A tasty steak BBQ will be available to everyone after racing on Saturday.

WE STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS!!  Particularily from the under 35 years of age crowd.  A second pair of hands is needed in all of safety, markset and RC boats. If you can help out either or both days please let us know ASAP!!

Mountain Madness Regatta Results Missing in Action!

Racing

Have you seen the MMR overall results? The Mountain Madness Regatta was held this past weekend with 16 boats on the line including Laser’s, Laser 2’s, 29ers, Radials, Bytes and Opti’s. The racing was fierce on Saturday followed by a tasty BBQ Saturday evening (Thanks Margot!!). Quite a few folks chose to camp out at the club overnight for the early start Sunday morning. Winds started out in the midrange Sunday morning but escalated to over 20 knots by the second race leading to the cancellation of remaining races. Thanks to Mike Heseltine for his expertise at running races as well as Leigh Campbell, Warren White, John Barry and Mark Lammens for extra help out on the water. Currently the overall results are missing in action. Rumor has it they are in the hands of Mark Lammens, who is apparently out coaching at BSSC all this week. Hopefully we will track him and the results down soon for posting…stay tuned…

Results – June 4 Sunset Series

Racing

We sailed in all conditions Wednesday evening. I left Saskatoon at 4 PM and saw gentle breezes in the trees. When I got to Blackstrap, there were whitecaps on the lake but at the start of racing at 6 PM the wind had dropped and we sailed a drifter. Fortunately, the wind picked up for the start of the second race and we had some good hiking conditions only to have the wind drop to a gentle breeze for the later races. Thanks to Patty Coons and Leigh Campbell for running the races with assistance from Mark. Results are posted on the Regatta page of this site.
