MONDAY RACE NIGHTS TEST CYC SKIPPERS AND CREWS

Once again, the second Monday race took place in challenging seas and stiff winds. Four boats were up to the task of four legs in bracing conditions last night. Well done...Toboggan, and spirited sailing from Nemesis, At Last  and Straight Arrow. 

Rob Lenters and crew of Toboggan cut a dash as they streak across the stern of The Barren at end of race under the appreciative eye of Rear Commodore Bill Wilcox.

VICTORIA DAY WEEKEND CRUISE IS A TRIUMPH FOR PETER McLACHLAN.

The first CYC Cruise took place up to Trenton and we show some images below. Fair weather and good company. Motor and sail combined to start the season:


Peter and Renee relax knowing they have pulled it off!

Elizabeth Anne steaming on the port quarter, prepare to repel boarders! Break out a case of OV from the magazine.


But it wasn`t all fun as this candid photo testifies: Ian Stracey with Davina contemplates the bar bill historically awarded for the weekend to the newest Senior Member Cruise participant.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT KEEL RACE

SETS AN UNEXPECTED COURSE:



Marshal Jim Stewart aboard The Barren assisted by Jim Hales.  Wednesday night racing took a new turn as the set course was close to shore in light winds. Certainly spectacular for any one on shore. In line with plans from the Spring AGM to make CYC more relevant to Cobourg. And it worked!

Just look how close the start line is to shore! That`s The Barren in the middle of this photo. Twelve feet draught had Skippers constantly looking at the depth meter whilst avoiding each others craft. 


The course was shortened by one leg as

wind had gone to another part of our Country. But honours this week went to Blurr as usual in Gold, At Last in Green and becoming a pattern, and finally Tenacious as the new challenge in the Blue fleet.
