CanAm Championship Series Returns to South Florida’s West Coast

2.4mR CanAm 2019

NOR for 2.4 Meter Series Now Available

Port Charlotte, Fla. (November 8, 2018) – The U.S. 2.4 Meter Class Association has announced its return to South Florida’s West Coast for the third edition of the class’ CanAm Championship Series which will feature five regattas hosted from the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club (CHYC) in Port Charlotte, Florida.  Well-known as an ideal area in which to escape the winter, Charlotte Harbor has become a favored destination of the 2.4mR class due to the reliable breeze and to the protected waters of the Peace River where races are held.

The 2019 CanAm Championship Series kicks off next month with the six-race 2.4mR North American Championship from December 3-5, 2018, followed later that week by the nine-race 2.4mR U.S. National Championship, December 6-9.  After a break for the holidays, competition resumes in the New Year with the 2019 Edge Sailing Midwinters scheduled for January 25-27, and CanAm #4 from February 22-24, each of which is scheduled to have five races.  The series concludes with the nine-race 2019 CanAm Championship Finale from March 29-31, with the series champion determined from the results of all five regattas after his or her worst score is discarded.  For competitors who do not race in all five events, the scoring will count all events sailed (i.e. they will not drop their worst result).

Reigning 2.4mR U.S. National Champion Dee Smith, of Annapolis, Md., winner of the 2017 2.4mR CanAm Championship Series, has already made his plans to be back in Florida. “The CanAm Championship Series is the best racing you can get in 2.4mR sailing in North America,” said Smith.  “Great race management and fun people. It is tactical, fun racing. I will be back in December!”

Sailors from as far away as Norway, San Diego and Seattle, along with a strong contingent of Canadian snow birds, were among the almost two dozen entries in the 2018 championship series.  For many, the opportunity to race regularly and have a break from the winter weather is an irresistible combination.

“Sailing a monthly 2.4mR regatta against great competition in Charlotte Harbor is an ideal winter activity,” said Ottawa’s Peter Wood, President of the Canadian 2.4mR Class, “especially when you need to put on a warm hat, gloves and snow boots just to leave the house.”

Competitors who register for the entire series by November 30, 2018, will have their boat storage from December through March included as a perk.  Details of the regatta schedules, social events, hotels and more may be found in the just published Notice of Race, available here.

About the 2.4mR:  The 2.4mR originated in 1983 in Sweden and attained confirmation as an international class less than 10 years later.  Class racing puts the emphasis on the tactical – not physical – skills of the sailor as the single-handed boats are equal under the strict rules that govern the class.  With a length of 13’ 8” and the advantage of being easily transported and stored, this sleek keelboat has gained favor with a wide range of able-bodied sailors and sailors with disabilities (there are 1200 boats worldwide and roughly 200 in the USA alone).  For more information on the class, please visit http://www.canada24mr.com/ or www.us24meter.org/

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]
