2.4mR Canadian Championships 2021

Royal Victoria Yacht Club, Victoria BC
10-12 September 2021

We did it! We actually managed to host a championship regatta, the first held one at RVicYC since the pandemic began in March 2020. So on behalf of the organising committee we’d like to start by thanking club staff, our volunteers, supporters, sailors, coaches, race committee, jury and especially our visiting teams for making the huge effort required to come to this beautiful bay and sail.

There were many moments during the planning stages when we wondered if this would ever happen, with constant pivoting, adjusting, organising and re-organising. However when our visiting sailors from Saskatchewan, Alberta, Ontario and Seattle finally drove down onto the foreshore with their boats, we knew we had a regatta.

The racing itself was tight, varied, challenging, exciting and eventful. Friday dawned bright and clear with very light wind from the SE and Race Officer John Abel ran two races in the bay before we felt the warmth of the westerly and moved out into Oak Bay for two more in the breeze, with enough waves to surf downwind. Visiting sailors were heard whooping with delight! Unfortunately on Saturday it was wet and windless all day and we only succeeded in filling up our bilges with rainwater. However this did give us precious time to reconnect with our much-missed sailing community (and a bit of boat fixing). On Sunday the there was a battle between a SE wind and the westerly, causing much moving of committee boats, resetting of marks and radio chatter. We sailed three races in very varied conditions with plenty of ladder climbing, sliding down snakes and all types of spinning.

In the end, however, the biggest battle was for the championship, with Bruce Millar and Bob Britten duking it out right up until the final leg, with Bruce winning on a tie-breaker. Louise Anstey completed the podium with her third place. In the disabled event Bruce was winner with Jackie Gay second and Peter Eager third. It is heartening to note that of 21 boats, 11 were disabled sailors and seven were women. Truly inclusive sailing of the highest calibre.

It is exciting to see our young sailors mixing it up with this highly experienced fleet. All the sailors had great moments and huge learning opportunities. Bring on the next one!

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.

Victoria Fleet Championship September 2020

Submitted by Louise Anstey

The Victoria Fleet held its socially distanced Fleet Championship on September 19-20.  On Saturday, the fleet enjoyed a 5-7 kt S breeze that shifted through the day towards the SW.  Sunday offered a lighter ESE wind with fog to obscure the weather mark in the first two races.  A new experience for this 2.4 fleet!  When turning downwind from the weather mark, it was the same problem: where is the leeward mark?  Well…..just picked an appropriate wind angle, set the jib and soon the start boat came into view.

Fleet members’ comments described the weekend very nicely, so here are a few of them.

  • From Mark Brown – Great Regatta, 10 challenging races, nobody “walked away” with the races, a competitive fleet, and no collisions or protests. Hard to best that outcome. We are lucky to have such competent and generous members of our fleet and club.
  • From Bob Britten – What a super way to wind up our summer of sailing!
  • To say that the conditions were challenging is an understatement – by the end of several races I felt “brain dead” – but overall I had a super time!
    Simply fantastic one-design racing!
    Thanks very muchto Bruce Millar and Louise Anstey for organizing the weekend and, of course, to Kirk Palmer, Dave Richardson, Ken Pohl and Tim Knight for giving up their weekend so that we could have fun during ours!
  • To summarize the event, Doug Bell writes: Such a pleasure to sail in our fleet. Competitive but friendly, respectful, helpful and fun.

Final result: 1st Bruce Millar, 2nd Louise Anstey, 3rd Bob Britten winning a tie breaker over Doug Bell

2020 2.4mR NYC Championship

This past weekend, September 19-20, the National Yacht Club 2.4 fleet enjoyed a fantastic weekend of racing for the 2020 2.4mR Club Championship.

Although the fleet has been active with self-run racing throughout the summer, it was a treat to once again race in a real regatta with a real race committee.

Race Officer John Kitchener and his crew of volunteers did a great job of getting off 7 races in a shifty breeze.

Allan Liebel raced with exceptional consistency to win the regatta followed by Jerry Wendt in 2nd place and Darrell Suderman in 3rd.
