Canada Summer Games 2017

Gimli Yacht Club

The 2017 Canada Summer Games was hosted by the City of Winnipeg. Canada Summer Games are a multi sport games modelled after the Olympics with each province selecting and sending athletes to compete against athletes from other provinces/territories. Awards are given to the province with the most medals and to the province/territory which most improves its results from the previous games. The games are held each two years alternative between summer and winter sports. The sailing events took place at Gimli on Lake Winnipeg approximately 90 kilometers north of the main games village.

The 2.4mR class was used for the Para mixed event. (there are only four sports who include a Para event in their program). As the games are considered a development program the age of the athletes are restricted. However in order to have a full field, age exemptions were given to the 2.4mR Para event.

Seven of the ten scheduled races were sailed in generally light winds. The final three races were cancelled because the wind did not reach 3.5 knots. The third day of racing saw winds as high as 16 knots with large short seas caused by the long fetch and the relatively shallow lake. This caused three boats to swamp and one boat not to start in the difficult conditions of Race # 5.

Interestingly two boats were jib-boom boats and they definitely showed that they can be competitive in both light and heavy conditions. Where they seemed less competitive were in 5 to 7 knots of breeze. This option should be seriously considered by sailors with disabilities.

The next Canada Summer Games will be in Niagara region of Ontario in 2021. For those Games  it will be important that all Para sailors will meet the age restrictions of under 35 years of age.

Canada Summer Games 2017 Podium

2.4mR sailor is Nova Scotia’s Flag Bearer at 2017 Canada Games

Sailor Siobhan MacDonald and paddler Zane Clarke will carry the Nova Scotia flag at the 2017 Canada Games in Winnipeg.

The flag-bearers were announced during the team’s pep rally today, July 8, in Halifax.

Ms. MacDonald, a Mabou native currently studying at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., will carry the flag for the opening ceremonies on July 28 in Winnipeg. She is a double amputee who will compete in the 2.4mR para-sailing event, in which she placed fourth in Sherbrooke in 2013.

“I feel pretty shocked, honestly, just because I know what phenomenal, phenomenal athletes we have on Team Nova Scotia,” said Ms. MacDonald. “It’s hard to put into words how proud I am to lead us into the opening ceremonies in Winnipeg. I still have to pinch myself. I’m just really, really excited.”
