2.4mRs Sail at Nepean Sailing Club’s NOD (Nepean One Design) Regatta August 14 & 15th

A fleet of eight 2.4mR’s competed in the NOD regatta. For most of the fleet it was their first competition in 18 months or longer and it was great to get out on the water. The regatta offered interesting sailing conditions with the average wind speeds of 9.5 Knots. (16 knots on the first day and 3.5 knots on day 2).

The higher wind speed on Day 1 caused serious attrition with only Peter Eager (Toronto) completing all races. Eric Gouin & Erick Poirier of AQVA Pointe Claire sailed all three races but confusion about the courses to be sailed resulted in them only being scored for Race 3. Other sailors retired with a variety of boat issues (Aaron Wong broke his forestay pendent and Brian Peckover & Peter Wood had steering issues) or general fatigue from a lack of experience in the heavy air conditions.

Day 2 had very light conditions and the whole fleet came out for a challenging experience of seeking wind pressure on the course. Three races were sailed with the final race shortened to three legs. It was great to be back on the water.
