    CYC 2016 ANNUAL FLOTILLA

    Back by popular demand, this year the club's annual flotilla will take us to the Sunshine Coast of BC. This sparsely populated section of the coast lies between Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet. The flotilla this year will depart from Sidney BC, Saturday April 30, 2016 - Sunday May 8, 2016 with a pre-departure boarding Sat April 30, 2016. Our home port for this excursion will be Sidney, BC with Yachts chartered through Coopers Boating. From this base, we will be able to cross the Strait of Georgia and explore the waters of the Sunshine Coast and the surrounding islands including Texada, Lasquiti, Jedidiah among others or explore the Gulf Islands on the Vancouver Island side of the strait. Typical costs for the week of sailing are in the range of $1000 per person depending upon the yacht and the number of sailors on board. This will normally include your share of the yacht charter, insurance, fuel, moorage and food. Additional costs would involve transportation to and from Sidney. Each yacht is chartered by a qualified and certified skipper who will be responsible for the daily operations of the yacht. Individual crew members are added to the crew list based upon experience and personal expectations. No experience is necessary, just a love for sailing and exploring.

    If you are interested in joining us this year, please let Brian Breeze know as soon as possible to allow skippers to charter a suitable yacht.

     

    Thanks,

    Brian Breeze

    A good turnout at CYC for the 6th running of the Brass Monkey Alberta Masters Champs and the reinvigorated Alberta Laser Champs.  The Brass Monkey was held earlier this year as so many of the fleet will be over in France at the Laser Masters world championships. A total of 8 sailors from CYC will be in France, the most from any single club in North America and perhaps the world!

    There were 19 boats out on Saturday in light gusty conditions, no lines freezing in the blocks this year.  Some would say fluky conditions, but only those that didn’t do well as the old saying of “good to be lucky, lucky to be good” held true and the leaders will come as no surprise.

    Like a fine wine improving with age and experience, proving there is nothing like a steady hand on the tiller, the winner of the Brass Monkey was GGM David Elliott. Showing his transom to the fleet and quietly amassing a series of good finishes David finished the day 4 points ahead of 2nd Place Michael Hooper and 3rd Eugene Dombrovskiy.

    The winner of the Alberta Laser Lantern trophy was Michael Hooper who won on a tie breaker with Ian Elliott in a well fought very close contest. Eugene Dombrovskiy completed the podium in 3rd place.

    In the Radial group it was 1/ Stephen Reichenfeld, 2/ Lesley Reichenfeld, 3/ Debbie Kirkby.

    Top junior was Connor Weicht who showed he has learned a thing or two this season about starting well and was consistently off the line with the leaders.  A good thing that age and skullduggery still beats youthful enthusiasm but probably not for much longer.  We will see more of him I am sure.

    Many thanks to all the volunteers who assisted, the great post race meal, Bob Peachey and Bob Overfield in the course boats and PRO David Martin for cracking off 12 races in good order.
