President’s Report 2016

Christine Lavallée
At the 2015 AGM in Victoria, after many years as president, Bruce Millar stepped down.  Bruce, as well as being a high performance competitor, has been the key in growing the Victoria fleet and providing encouragement to 2.4mR sailors throughout Canada.  Bruce continues as the International President and our Canadian measurer.
At last year’s AGM, I was volunteered to be president.  For those who don’t know me, I bought a boat in 2008 and have sailed in the Class ever since.  We have also revised our Executive with Anne Sanderson continuum as Regatta Coordinator, Peter Wood as Treasurer assisted by Stacie Loutit, and Aaron Wong-Sing managing our website .  Please check the website for the latest class news and regatta information.
The class is strong with boats in eight provinces. We will have for the first time a fleet of 8 or more boats at Sail West in Manitoba, in addition to strong class events in Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia.  Looking forward to 2017, the 2.4mR class will be in the Canada Summer Games in Gimli, Manitoba.
If you have any questions about 2.4mRs including buying, selling, or just trying the boat for a demonstration sail, please contact one of our class contacts found on the website.
