Victoria’s 2.4 Fleet from Royal Victoria YC hosted the 2023 Pacific Coast Championship Regatta September 8 to 10 in beautiful Cadboro Bay. Fifteen 2.4mRs registered for this warm September weekend including sailors Peter Wood from Ottawa, as well as Jeff Reinhold and his ‘new to the 2.4mR’ friends, Jonathan Reichhold and Alex Wigley from Seattle.
After a foggy practice day on Friday, we had clear skies with light, tricky SW breezes on both Saturday and Sunday for a total of nine races. Racing was competitive and tight with more than a few photo finishes.
Congratulations to Bob Britten who won First Place. Bruce Millar won Second Place followed closely by Louise Anstey in Third Place. Quote of the weekend “Bob was good on Saturday, and brilliant on Sunday.” See https://theclubspot.com/regatta/JCdRgqQ66l/results .
Many thanks to our excellent race committee of A.J. Hesford and his competent team of volunteers.
