2.4mRs Race in Frozen Assets Regatta 2019 RVYC 16th & 17th February

AKA ‘Careful What You Wish For’

Jackie Gay

‘Wanna come and freeze your assets off?’ I said, in an email to our sturdy 2.4mR group, in mid January, when Victoria was bathed in spring-like temperatures. ‘Sign up! It’ll be fun.’ Then a few days before the regatta Victoria received its biggest dump of snow in 40 odd years and John and myself were trapped in the house, let alone capable of getting to any regatta… Fortunately the melt came quickly, the temperature-rise less so, so getting kitted out required the full 2.4mR regalia of multiple layers, wrist-seals, neck-seals, toques, spare-toques and of course (‘every time you go to sea,’ as Louise Anstey astutely noted) sunglasses.

With seven entries our fleet was second in size only to the Radials, and joined by Chris Maier from CFSA, his first time racing the boat. On Saturday the wind looked classic Victoria ‘light and fluky’ but actually settled down to a decent SW-ish and we had six excellent races with Louise giving me and Doug Bell some lessons in what we should and (mostly) shouldn’t be doing. With all classes racing on the same course everyone had to be hyper-aware – a 49er needs a lot of room from our slim wee 2.4s at the leeward mark… Louise won the day with excellent tight racing. On Sunday it was cold and clear with a brisk northerly, waves, strong current and COLD. Oak Bay was a fine sight with the snowy mountains circling us, skiffs flying around (and some swimming…) and even tighter racing in the 2.4mR fleet, with overlapped finishes and a stellar bullet for Delani Hulme-Lawrence. Louise won the event with Jackie second and Doug third, but the real winner was our fleet which can only improve with such tight, competitive racing and new participants. Thanks to the Race Committee for sterling work managing all the fleets; the coaches for encouragement, food and dry clothing; and all the sailors who made this event a real spectacle and a whole lot of fun.

RVYC Inaugural 2.4mR Ice Bowl 2018

December 29, 2018
by Jackie Gay

Even for us out here on the balmy west coast of Canada, the day of Victoria Fleet’s first 2.4mR Ice Bowl Regatta did not look promising, classic ‘socked in’ winter weather where we couldn’t see the end of the bay and LOTS of rain. However 10 hardy/brave/foolish (depending on who you ask…) souls suited up and headed out onto Cadboro Bay. Surprisingly, the wind was consistent throughout the day in speed if not direction, and the southerly arguing with the westerly made for some shifty, interesting racing. The day belonged to Louise Anstey who scored 6 points out of 5 races, followed by Doug Bell on 10 points and Jackie Gay on 12. With the fleet tight on all mark roundings and anything possible on each leg we were all fully engaged and had a whole lot of soggy fun, a great celebration of our growing fleet and high level racing that would have kept the best in the world on their toes!

Many thanks to Louise Anstey for her sterling work organizing, Bruce Millar and his dedicated (and damp…) race committee and David Bleakney for initiating the idea. It was great to reflect on the small beginnings of our fleet back in the days when David, Rod Mack and I were swapping in and out of the two borrowed boats and chasing Bruce around the bay. #keepchasing!
