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.
