A total of eight teams from the United States and Canada took part in the Farr 30 Canadian National Title competition with 10 races sailed over three days on picturesque English Bay in Vancouver. Hosted by the beautiful Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, conditions ranged from moderate to light breeze and pouring rain on day one, to glorious sunshine and a stable eight to ten knot breeze on the final day of racing.

After the first day's racing, the scoring was tight with six of eight boats clearly in the hunt. Canadians Andrew Hamilton (Through) and James Duess (M Power) were tied for the lead with 11 points, followed by local Fleet Captain, Richard Alban (Spiny Norman), Bruce Chan (65 Red Roses), and Dan Randolph (Nefarious) all with 17 points. Two other boats were close behind with 18 points.

On day two of racing, Through found their stride and never looked back, scoring four consecutive bullets. Racing continued to be tight amongst the fleet providing some exciting moments downwind and at the mark roundings. After day two, the fourth through fifth boats found themselves within one point of each other.

Ultimately there was no stopping the consistency of the team on Through and they rightly claimed the title of 2012 Canadian National Champion. The top three finishers were Andrew Hamilton on Through, Richard Alban sailing Spiny Norman and James Duess on M Power.

Special thanks to our gracious hosts the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, event chair Cory Wright, Sailing Director James Macdonald and Race Officer Peter Van Muyden.

All I can say is that had LRBAR's hull not been stopped by SBTJ's windward foil there would have been serious injuries aboard the Japanese boat. Moreover, notwithstanding the damage done to Land Rover BAR's boat, there must be considerable damage to the dagger-foil case of SBTJ. Considerable.
