CORK Fall Regatta and Eastern Canadians

Thirteen teams from Canada and the US East Coast converged to Kingston for the 2018 Eastern Canadians September 22-23. Three races sailed on Saturday with shifty winds coming from the Kingston shore line. It was a game of snakes and ladders, eyes out of the boat and avoiding holes out on the race course was key. The breeze eventually shut off during the third race of the day and a fleet decision was made to head ashore. After a postponement ashore, two sailed on Sunday in light, shifty winds from the Wolf Island. The Kingston Sea Breeze eventually came in during the second race. It was great practice looking ahead to the 2019 North Americans which will be in Kingston August 21-25th.

Local favourites Jeff Boyd and Martin ten Hove (CAN 8821) won the regatta by a single point over Brent Beninger and Martin Hicks (CAN 8735) from Ottawa. Marie Gendron and Nicolas Tosi from Ottawa (CAN 8600) finished in third.

Thanks to all the volunteers and to CORK for having the 505’s this year! Thanks to the American sailors for making the trip up north

Toronto Regatta – Ontario 505 Championships – September 2018

Wind, cottage ambiance, good food and friendly sailors are the hallmark characteristics of annual Toronto 505 regatta, also considered the Ontario Championships.
 
A sure sign that the RC is awesome when they said at the skippers meeting that I would rather have us racing than for them to try to make a perfect course. I also loved that they encouraged radios and to call anytime to make a suggestion or just to say Hi.
 
Saturday delivered with breeze ranging from 12-25 kts. It was lumpy north westerlies and the course was set beyond the lee of Toronto Island making for lumpy sailing. One minute it was champagne conditions and the next minute you were getting your ass kicked by big puffs. In summary, boat handling skills won the day over hull speed and tactics.
 
By Sunday sailors were begging for a light day due to fatigue, and mother nature was kind leaving a nice breeze but the bailers were able to drain all day long if needed. Boat speed, positioning and tactics became important skills of the day
 
The Toronto 505 sailing scene is extremely healthy. Thanks to previous fleet building efforts by Angus Ross, Marek Balinski seems to take the torch and build on it by buying a new boat, travelling and encouraging experienced Albacore sailors to come try a boat with a kite.
 
And then there is the lovely support by the contender fleet who look after the details of regatta logistics by doing all the background jobs and having each sailor arrange one part of the meal by doing the beer run, buying fresh apple pie or grabbing the steaks and cooking them for you. Thank you contender folks, our two classes make for wonderful partners.
 
See you next season. Bow down and go.

505 Sailing in Kingston is Back!

After a long drought of 505 sailing in Kingston, it simply got too much for us and folks picked a date and decided to meet at KYC and go sailing together.

Sure, we had to get formal about it and call it a “training camp” but really it was just an excuse to rekindle old friends, and do what we miss and love.

And the 505 gods took mercy upon us delivering a full two days of 20+ knots.  Hot sun, warm wind, clear green water and rock em’ sock um’ waves.  It was kingston at it’s best.

And of course a wonderful party was throw by the Boyds at their famous garage.  It was really like the good ol days.

More sailing to come.  The future is bright.  May the spirit live on.

(Many thanks to Gord Crothers for the use of his rib.)
