Okay; first of all, club members are newbies when it comes to organizing races. While some members have crewed on boats that race at NBYC and others have raced in their distant past, there is a need for a lot of learning. That being said, there was huge enthusiasm at the 2019 Fall “Cancellation” Regatta when 5 boats competed in two races and most participants wanted to have more events in 2020. Hence a racing page on our website.
Our first event is written up in the “Events” page of this website. Fair to say that the races were ruled by confusion, gusty winds and a tremendous attitude of sporting fun.
We distributed a set of simplified racing rules to get us started. Click here SIMPLIFIED-RACING-RULES-FOR-BEGINNERS
There was no racing in 2020 and 2021, mostly because of the pandemic but there are high hopes for some in 2022. Hopefully we will be able to have regular races in North Bay and still take part in Callander at the NBYC from time to time.
