Darrell Suderman wins Canadian 2.4mR Championship

Pointe Claire QC

Darrell Suderman of National Yacht Club, Toronto won the 2016 Canadian 2.4mR Championship in a hotly contested fleet of 21 boats edging out Allan Leibel of Toronto by one point and Charlie Rosenfield of Woodstock CT by two points in the six race series.

Racing on Friday August 12, was held in 14 to 16 knot North easterly winds and grey clouds as Suderman  and Leibel each took a first and a second in the two races run with Rosenfield barking at their heals with two third place finishes.

Saturday August 13th saw lighter winds in the 8 to 12 knot range with Rosenfield having the more consistent record of a one first, two seconds and a third. However Suderman won the final two races to hold onto first place while Leibel was able to discard a fifteenth to hold second.

The racers arrived at the club on Sunday August 14th to find Lac St Louis total calm. Although the wind was forecast to come in mid morning it didn’t arrive until after 1:00pm which was too late to assemble the fleet on the water prior to the cut off time at 2:00pm

The 2016 Canadian Championship had entrants from as far away as Calgary, Alberta, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and Fort Myers, Florida and speaks well for the health of the class in Canada which is enjoying its largest class membership.

Winter 2016 – 2017 events Include the North American Championships and US midwinter Championships in Charlotte Harbour Florida December 6 – 10 and the CAN AM winter series through Dec 2016 – March 2017

President’s Report 2016

Christine Lavallée
 
At the 2015 AGM in Victoria, after many years as president, Bruce Millar stepped down.  Bruce, as well as being a high performance competitor, has been the key in growing the Victoria fleet and providing encouragement to 2.4mR sailors throughout Canada.  Bruce continues as the International President and our Canadian measurer.
 
At last year’s AGM, I was volunteered to be president.  For those who don’t know me, I bought a boat in 2008 and have sailed in the Class ever since.  We have also revised our Executive with Anne Sanderson continuum as Regatta Coordinator, Peter Wood as Treasurer assisted by Stacie Loutit, and Aaron Wong-Sing managing our website www.canada24mr.com .  Please check the website for the latest class news and regatta information.
 
The class is strong with boats in eight provinces. We will have for the first time a fleet of 8 or more boats at Sail West in Manitoba, in addition to strong class events in Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia.  Looking forward to 2017, the 2.4mR class will be in the Canada Summer Games in Gimli, Manitoba.
 
If you have any questions about 2.4mRs including buying, selling, or just trying the boat for a demonstration sail, please contact one of our class contacts found on the website.
