The regatta spirit got rolling Friday with the out of town boats arriving and being assembled. The 2.4mR fleet is always interesting for the mix of able and disable sailors. With the abled sailor helping the disabled sailors rig and launch. A few people even got out for a sail late Friday afternoon. Saturday started with light rain that ends as we arrived at NYC. Boats got launched. Clothing choices were made. We sailed out to the course in light air. Richard and his Race Committee got a course set and we were into our first race a little after 11:00. The fleet doesn’t get stretched to long so we managed to get in the full complement of four races in. We also managed to all arrive safely at the dock as a squall hit. The big increase in wind and pouring rain only lasted a few (long) minutes. Boats were put away and the cooking and eating started, along with an array of beverages to re-hydrate.

Sunday morning came around with more rain and no wind! The RC assured us there would be wind and promptly left the dock. We arrived at the race course some by tow, some in zephyrs of breeze. We all drifted around until the wind (barely) settled in at about 3.5 Knots. The wind never got above 6 knots and shifted a little back and forth. We managed to get in 3 races by 2:45. The RC then sent us in calling it a regatta, with a drop.

Back on shore priority was given to out of towners to pull their boats and get equipment packed onto trailer and trucks.

The 2019 2.4mR Great lakes Championships had 15 boats from Montreal, Ottawa, Florida, Maryland, Connecticut, and NYC. 3rd place was NYC’s Darrel Suderman, 2nd place Dee Smith of Annapolis, and 1st NYC’s Allan Liebel.

Many thanks to Richard McKean and the group of race committee volunteers. Special thanks to John King and the Sea Scouts for helping the disabled sailors rig and de rig their boats. Thanks to Able Sail Toronto for a place to park the disabled sailors boats for the weekend.

This event was the third in the CanAm North summer series. The final event is the 2.4mR Canadian Championship at NYC September 7 & 8.

Clagett Boat Grant Program: 2.4mRs

Hi everyone,
I am writing to ask that you all please encourage 2.4mR sailors to apply to The Clagett Regatta’s boat grant program. The grant is open to both individuals and adaptive organizations. 
The application, requirements and more information about the program can be found here: https://clagettregatta.org/Boat-Grant-Program.
The Clagett has a board meeting coming up, and if we do not start to generate interest among the 2.4mR sailing community for this boat grant application we may need to discuss options for a different boat to grant.
Thank you.
