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

2013 2.4mR Canadian Championship Regatta Notes

This year’s regatta travelled to La Belle Province and was hosted by Pointe Claire Yacht Club (PCYC), Pointe Claire (Montreal), Quebec the weekend of June 1st-June 2nd. PCYC is located in the village of Pointe Claire, on Lake St. Louis, a lake that is part of the St. Lawrence Seaway. The club has three 2.4mRs and is looking to grow its fleet.

Representation from Royal Hamilton Yacht Club, Nepean Sailing Club, Kingston Yacht Club, National Yacht Club, Woodstock, Connecticut and Randolph, New Jersey, totaling 14 boat owners, competed at this event.
Race conditions were quite variable throughout the weekend. Race Officer Madeleine Palfreeman was presented with challenging conditions on Saturday, June 1st. It was an extremely hot and humid day with very light and shifty winds. After numerous delays, Race Officer Madeleine was able to provide the fleet with two good light air races. The conditions deteriorated as the afternoon progressed and the fleet was sent back to shore.

The Canadian 2.4mR Class Association AGM was held on the waterside large veranda of PCYC and there were good discussions regarding the upcoming Worlds, the state of the various fleets across Canada and the need for boat inventory. Later Saturday evening, a dinner was held at a local pub and provided a welcomed opportunity for everyone to relax and get caught up on their respective plans for the reminder of the season. The forecasted thunderstorms arrived Saturday evening which brought cool temperatures and more stable weather for Sunday.

Sunday started with light winds that gradually built as the day progressed, resulting in a beautiful day of racing!

Race Officer Madeleine was able to complete three good races which allowed for a drop in the final scoring.

There was a three way tie for first place between Jerry Wendt, John Finch and Bruce Millar. Once the rules of tie-breaking were applied Bruce Millar was declared the winner of the regatta with John Finch placing second and Jerry Wendt placing third. The overall scores are summarized below.

Fleet tradition is to have the awards presented at the drysail crane and this event was no different. Speeches were made, thank you’s expressed and awards were presented. A fleet photo was taken to conclude a fabulous regatta and weekend.

North Sail Yacht Shop ARK Regatta 2013

ARK regatta – Bedford Basin Yacht Club, Halifax, NS

The first 2.4 mR regatta in the Atlantic Provinces was held July 6 and 7 in light to medium shifty winds. Over two days, we had a hard working Race Committee trying to keep up with the changing breeze. Thanks to ARK for letting us participate and hope it happens again next year!

After 7 races, Scott Lutes finished first, Logan Campbell second, and Nova Scotia’s Canada games representative, Siobhan MacDonald from Mabou, Cape Breton finished third.

Special thanks to Lesley Taylor for her help this past week!
