2013 Canadian IOM Eastern Region #1 Regatta

2013 Canadian IOM Eastern Region #1 Regatta

September 6-7-8, 2013 

Yes, it is that time again... Fall is coming and the Kingston Yacht Club International One Meter Fleet will be hosting their Annual Regatta. The sailing will take place right here at KYC off the outer Break-wall. We will be looking for all you keen members to come and check out the event. There will be between 15 and 20 model yachts competing over the three days for the Eastern Canadian Region 1 Championship. IOM sailors are gathering from California, Florida, Bahamas, Detroit, New York, Washington, Toronto, and our local Fleet Representatives.
We are aware there are other activities this weekend and will be watching out for you on the water. Please do us the same courtesy.
If you have any interest in the Model Yacht Fleet or questions about it, this might be a good time to find those answers. We are sailing Friday from noon until around 6pm. Saturday from 1030 – 5ish, and Sunday 10:30 – 3ish. All times are dependent on the wind, of course. You are sure to find the sailors in the bar after racing, discussing their passion with other like sailors. Please join us. You can check the Kingston Yacht Club Regattas page for a list of competitors and results: http://kingstonyachtclub.ca/regattas
The KYC IOM Fleet has been hosting an IOM event in Kingston since 1996 and it is always a lot of fun. I hope you will come by and check it out. Maybe you will consider joining the fleet. We are excited this year to have new prize sponsors – some local and some from afar. If you have any questions or inquires about the event, please contact Lana Butler, Regatta Chair, at lana@lalift.ca
