Canada after two years, held its first Soling event this past weekend at the Royal Saint Laurence Yacht Club, despite the fleet still being cautious about traveling, teams from USA (832) Ashley Henderson, Mark Keast and John Bayldon and CAN 236 from Nova Scotia with Bill Haliburton, Keith Davidson and Terry Booth hit the road to sail in Montreal.
Sailors eager to sail faced a fabulous wind on Saturday with peaks of 20 knots and a much lighter situation on Sunday, Saturday went in vain, allowing 4 races and which the bullets CAN 225 the champion took home, they had different followers in almost all races, first CAN 233 with Tom Freemann, Steve Donker and Dave Valdestra , then at the second race the team from Nova Scotia CAN 236, at the third race CAN 210 with Ross Findlater, Gord Devries and Michele Davidson, they also managed to finish second the fourth race of the day and with lithger winds on the next day show their talent winning two bullets and a second.
CAN 225 suffered at the 6th race when placing a 4th and had to race the last sail just to make sure the good momentum of CAN 210 who won this race, would not steel their championship, under pressure CAN 225 ended winning the last race. CAN 236 also managed to steel the podium from CAN 233 by one point on the last race by finishing just ahead in 4th and CAN 233 in 5th.
The next two events in North America are the PCC invitational to be sailed out of Mission Bay Yacht Club in San Diego , California next October 15 to 17, and then the Fall Bowl in Annapolis at the end of October that was scheduled to fill in the NA Champs cancellation, Canadian teams still have difficulties to reach US waters, but hopefully the US fleet will break the inertia and fear and travel to sail at both events.
