Victoria Fleet Championship September 2020

Submitted by Louise Anstey

The Victoria Fleet held its socially distanced Fleet Championship on September 19-20.  On Saturday, the fleet enjoyed a 5-7 kt S breeze that shifted through the day towards the SW.  Sunday offered a lighter ESE wind with fog to obscure the weather mark in the first two races.  A new experience for this 2.4 fleet!  When turning downwind from the weather mark, it was the same problem: where is the leeward mark?  Well…..just picked an appropriate wind angle, set the jib and soon the start boat came into view.

Fleet members’ comments described the weekend very nicely, so here are a few of them.

  • From Mark Brown – Great Regatta, 10 challenging races, nobody “walked away” with the races, a competitive fleet, and no collisions or protests. Hard to best that outcome. We are lucky to have such competent and generous members of our fleet and club.
  • From Bob Britten – What a super way to wind up our summer of sailing!
  • To say that the conditions were challenging is an understatement – by the end of several races I felt “brain dead” – but overall I had a super time!
    Simply fantastic one-design racing!
    Thanks very muchto Bruce Millar and Louise Anstey for organizing the weekend and, of course, to Kirk Palmer, Dave Richardson, Ken Pohl and Tim Knight for giving up their weekend so that we could have fun during ours!
  • To summarize the event, Doug Bell writes: Such a pleasure to sail in our fleet. Competitive but friendly, respectful, helpful and fun.

Final result: 1st Bruce Millar, 2nd Louise Anstey, 3rd Bob Britten winning a tie breaker over Doug Bell

Victoria 2020 Fleet Champion, Bruce Millar, holding the Chatham Island Trophy (COVID model)

2020 2.4mR NYC Championship

This past weekend, September 19-20, the National Yacht Club 2.4 fleet enjoyed a fantastic weekend of racing for the 2020 2.4mR Club Championship.

Although the fleet has been active with self-run racing throughout the summer, it was a treat to once again race in a real regatta with a real race committee.

Race Officer John Kitchener and his crew of volunteers did a great job of getting off 7 races in a shifty breeze.

Allan Liebel raced with exceptional consistency to win the regatta followed by Jerry Wendt in 2nd place and Darrell Suderman in 3rd.

CanAm Series 2 Wrapup – International 2.4 Meter Class US Nationals

Port Charlotte, FL – December 15, 2019

After three magnificent days of sailing with winds from all points on the compass and ranging from 2 knots to 15 knots, the US 2.4 Meter class crowned a 2019 National Champion. American Dee Smith won the 9 race series followed closely by Canadian Allan Leibel. US Class president Tony Pocklington rounded out the podium finishes.

21 boats sailed and were largely overlapped the entire way around the course, finishing within seconds. Full results can be found here: https://www.regattanetwork.com/clubmgmt/applet_regatta_results.php?regatta_id=19913

The talented fleet was treated to wonderful hospitality by the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club on and off the water. Several of the competitors new to the class and the CanAm series commented on how easy the venue is with a 10 minute sail out to the racing course, the great meals, flowing kegs and well stocked bar.

The winter sailing series is just getting started. The fleet will be back on water for CanAm #3 starting January 25, 2020. More details about the schedule can be found here. Come join the fun in Port Charlotte. Email Tony Pocklington [at][dot]
