Lasers rocking out of the Etobicoke YC harbour to get to the race course - 2012 Laser and Radial Canadian Championships at Etobicoke Yacht Club Katie Nicoll
After two days of racing in the Radial class, Brenda Bowskill (RCYC) has moved to the top of the pack with eight points after six races completed at the 2012 Canadian Championships. In the Standard Rig, Lee Parkhill (RCYC) leads with 10 points after seven races.

The winds on the first day of racing (Friday) were fairly steady, though they became very shifty and variable in the afternoon. PRO Irene McNeill kept the fleet ashore on Saturday morning, until the winds built to five knots and then took the fleet farther out into Lake Ontario for steadier, stronger wind.


After 2 days of racing, with one more day to go, the top 5 boats in each fleet:
Laser Standard Rig Radial
Lee Parkhill (RCYC) 10 pts Brenda Bowskill (RCYC) 8 pts
Robert Davis (Kingston YC)22 pts William Marshall (FAST sailing foundation) 23 pts
Keith Davids Navy YC 25 pts Phenix Beaudoin Cloutier (Memphremagog) 30 pts
Evert McLaughlin (RCYC) 27 pts Madison Gates (St. Petersberg YC) 31 pts
Greg Clunies (RCYC) 31 pts Drake Lyon (Bayview YC) 33 pts

Sailors have traveled from as far away as St. Petersburg YC, Florida and the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron for this regatta
