The upcoming season is starting to form.
The plan is to have an open house April 19th, launch the boats on the first Saturday after May 24 and get straight into a full program of social sails and other activities.
September 9th and 10th, 2017. NBYC Fall Regatta.
Blue Sky entered the regatta with its newest boat in the fleet, a Hunter 26 and was successful in winning the white sail division over the 3 races that could be run with the light winds available. Bob Carpenter skippered and relied on Theresa MacRory, Bob Pinder and Joel Harrison as crew. Well done team!
The photo shows the start of the second race in the series.
July 1st, 2017 – Canada Day Regatta and race from North Bay to Callander.
Allegro took part with Bob Carpenter skipping and Theresa MacRory as crew. Despite a good start in very light breezes Allegro could not keep up with other boats when the wind freshened from the south east and meant that most of the race was close hauled. The race was shortened due to the lack of wind which allowed competitors to get dry earlier!
Several club members (John Otterspoor, Lyn Vuorimaki and Karen Sullivan) crewed on John Simmond’s “Naughti Gal” which won the race.
Thanks to the North Bay Yacht Club for arranging the event. We hope to be back and more competitive next year:)
July 9th, 2017 – Come Sail With Us …. sailing experiences for the public. Non-members booked a sailing experience by contacting the club. There was good sunny weather and a steady breeze to enjoy.
