Report from the President, July 2018

C. Thomas Clagett Junior Memorial  Regatta 2018

The 16th Annual Clagett Regatta at Newport RI was a fantastic success for a number of reasons. 23 boats participated in the 2.4mR Class, a record number for this event. Entries were from Puerto Rico, Canada and the United States. Entries included four sailors under the age of 25 (three from Canada) all young women. Delani Hume-Lawrence from Victoria placed 8th and won the coach’s award for most improved sailor while Shaylagh Ley from Ottawa placed 22nd and won the Sportsmanship Award. Both of these sailors are sailing Clagett Program Boats donated for their use for up to four years.

The Clagett Regatta foundation will be seeking applications for two additional program boats in the early fall 2018

Pacific Coast 2.4mR Championships

The inaugural Pacific Coast 2.4mR Championships were held June 16 & 17 at Royal Victoria Yacht Club with 11 boats in attendance. The boats attending were from Seattle and Calgary as well as from our Victoria fleet. The class anticipates that this will become an annual fixture on our regatta calendar and hopefully will attract more boats from western North American.

2018 Canadian 2.4mR Championships

Pointe Claire Yacht Club will be hosting the Canadian 2.4mR  Championships August 10 -12th. The Notice of Race and entry forms can be accessed by clicking on the event title in the events schedule of the 2.4mR website. Racing starts at 1:30pm on Friday August 10 allowing competitors to work a full day Thursday and get to the regatta site with time to rig on Friday morning.

2018 Class Annual Meeting

The 2018 Annual Meeting of the 2.4mR Class will take place at Pointe Claire Yacht Club  Friday August 10th after sailing. If any member has business they wish to discuss at the Annual meeting would they please advise either Audrey Kobayshi, Secretary-Treasurer or Peter Wood, President. Please send your agenda items to [at][dot]

2018 Membership  Dues

2018 dues are $ 50.00 (same as 2017) and are now overdue. Payment to be made through www.canada24mr.com

Canada’s Retaliatory Tariffs

The trade war between the Trump Administration in the United States and the Government of Canada is unfortunately impacting members importing 2.4mR sailboats from the United States. Sailboats with or without auxiliary power (tariff item 8903.91.10) will be subject to a tariff of 10%. This is in addition to the HST (or GST) which applies to all goods. Unfortunately consumers are the unspoken victims in these trade wars.

Buoyancy Tests and Certificates: Regular buoyancy tests are a safety issue. At the 2017 Canada Games two boats failed their initial buoyancy tests and required addition floatation materials before they were permitted to race. It was a good thing because two boats did swamp in the one heavy air race and required assistance in being pumped out. If you do not have a buoyancy certificate for your boat or if your certificate was issued in 2013 or earlier you must be tested before you will be permitted to race in class events in 2018. Contact the class measurer (Bruce Millar) to arrange for a buoyancy test.

Please remember to send your questions, reports, pictures and gripes to the class e-mail address [at][dot]

Victoria Fleet Conducts Flotation Testing

Louise Anstey

Thankfully, it was a sunny May afternoon when our scheduled day for the floatation test arrived. With the three Ps (planning, people and persistence) we managed to test most of the boats in our fleet. We used the method required by the Class Rules: 35 kg of lead placed in the boat (simulating the sailor’s weight), flood it with water, then rock the boat to remove any trapped air. At this stage, Doug Bell (CAN 68) recorded each partially submerged boat with its proud owner looking on.  Doug gave the photo evidence to our Class Measurer, Bruce Millar (CAN 39), for a permanent record of each test.

All eight boats tested that day passed with flying colours.

Being new to the 2.4mR class, I was a bit skeptical of the adequacy of this test. I know it is possible (although not advisable) to submarine a boat in 25 or 30 kts of wind and also that boats can fill up quickly especially when it is wavy, or on a busy start line, or when pumps fail, which they inevitably do. Having flipped and turtled dinghies in Caddy Bay in years past I know how cold that water is!  Staying with your boat or, better yet, on top of your boat is very important. So I needed to be sure my 2.4 had plenty of reserve buoyancy.  To satisfy myself, my solution was to climb aboard my boat full of water and the 35 kg of lead.

Yes!  It remained afloat…..well, awash…..but it did not sink.  Just to be sure this was not an anomaly, I performed this same test on three additional boats.

I’m happy.  Let’s go sailing.

Report from the President May 2018

CAN AM Winter Series: The second year of the 2.4mR CAN-AM winter series is in the books. The final regatta was picture perfect with winds 8 to 13 knots, air temperature 28 degrees Celsius and water temperature about 20 degrees Celsius. Racing was incredibly close throughout the fleet with first and last boats finishing 120 seconds apart.  Ironically, the days after the conclusion of the regatta were dead flat calm.  The schedule for the 2018 – 2019 CAN Am Winter Series should be available by late May.

2018 Regatta Schedule:  As regatta dates, host clubs, and venues are known they are being posted on the class website. The Toronto area regatta schedule is now posted. Royal Victoria Yacht Club is hosting the first Pacific Coast 2.4mR Championship June 16 & 17th.  Pointe Claire Yacht Club in Montreal will be hosting our 2018 Canadian Championship August 10, 11, & 12th.  Events in the United States which may be of interest to our members are being posted as we become aware of them. Please check the website regularly for all the latest news.

2018 Class Membership and DuesOur class membership year runs April 1 to March 31. The webmaster has edited the procedures to join the class on line through the website. This requires both renewing and new members to complete the jotform and pay the membership dues through Paypal. Although we do take payment by cheque as well, our preferred payment option is Paypal. Please don’t hand either the class secretary or myself cash at a regatta to pay your membership dues. Although we are honest we are also forgetful so your dues may not be credited to you.

2018 dues are $ 50.00 (same as 2017).

Class Website:  We had problems in September 2017 with the host of our class website.  Thanks to the tireless work of Aaron Wong-Sing, the website was rebuilt and we continue to receive positive comments from our members, from 2.4mR sailors from other countries, and from sailors in other classes within Canada. Making the job easier for Aaron has been Doug Bell, Dee Smith and Bruce Millar all who have contributed articles to the website. The website is our voice to the sailing community at large so if you have anything you wish to share please pass it to the webmaster.

Buoyancy Tests and Certificates: Regular buoyancy tests are a safety issue. At the 2017 Canada Games two boats failed their initial buoyancy tests and required addition floatation materials before they were permitted to race.

If you do not have a buoyancy certificate for your boat or if your certificate was issued in 2013 or earlier you must be tested before you will be permitted to race in class events in 2018. Contact the class measurer (Bruce Millar) to arrange for a buoyancy test.

Jib Boom Boats: Last winter, Tony Pocklington and Bruce Millar spent time with Bjorner Erikstad (NOR) about the development of jib boom boats. Bjorner has had international success with his jib boom boat and the consensus is that competitive jib boom boats will make 2.4mR sailing accessible to more sailors without diminishing the competitiveness of the fleet. In the future I will ask Bruce to prepare an article on jib boom boats for the website.

2.4mR Next Gen Talent ID Camp 2018 – CANCELLED

Unfortunately four of the five sailors who expressed interest in attending the Nepean Sailing Club’s under 25 2.4mR training camp June 13 –15 are now unavailable due to schedule conflicts. The camp is now cancelled. Although this is disappointing I will be maintaining contact with these athletes to see how the Canadian 2.4 Class Association can assist them in the future and help them prepare for Canada Games 2021. If you have identified athletes who are planning to sail the 2.4mR in the 2021 Canada Games and wish to receive specific advice about the boat and the class they can contact us through our e-mail address [at][dot]

Report from the President – March, 2018

CAN AM Winter Series: The second year of the 2.4mR CAN-AM winter series is currently underway with the four regattas completed at Charlotte Harbour Yacht Club in Florida. These events are drawing between 15 and 20 boats and so far the conditions have been outstanding. No days have been lost because of either insufficient winds or too much wind and the air temperatures have been warm. The final event takes place March 29 – 31. Already plans are afoot for the 2018 – 2019 Winter Series. We investigating a dedicated website for the series which will be loaded with information to make it easier for sailors to attend. It is our goal to reach out to European sailors to attend our Can Am series as air travel between Europe and southwestern Florida is relatively easy.

Clagett Regatta Foundation: The Clagett Regatta Foundation which organizes the Annual Thomas Clagett Jr Regatta in Newport RI issued a call in November 2017 for requests to use one of two new 2.4mR sailboats for a one to four year duration. They are happy to announce that Delani Hulme-Lawrence of Royal Victoria Yacht Club (Canada Games 2.4mR  sailor 2013 & 2017) and Shaylagh Ley of Nepean Sailing Club (Martin 16 Mobility Cup sailor 2016 & 2017) are the recipients of the boats. Both are young sailors who are really enthusiastic to join our class. We welcome them to the starting line.
