Sail-World.com : CYA Women’s National Keelboat Championships delivers!

CYA Women’s National Keelboat Championships delivers!

'Sunday racing at the 2011 CYA Women’s National Keelboat Championships'    May's Studio
After a long and sometimes rocky road, the CYA Womens National Keelboat Championship has finally came to pass. The event was to take place in September of 2010, but due to low water in the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Seaway last year, the event was postponed to now. In the end we had ten boats competing, from four provinces. The kick off was on Friday with a full day of on land and on water coaching ably handled by Geoff Moore of North Sails/North U, and Ron Harris, John Marten, and Pete Amos all three of HYC.

The girls spent Friday afternoon practicing starts, mark rounding, and general boat handling in winds of fifteen to seventeen knots. Friday evening all competitors were invited to stay at the club and enjoy a great meal at the weekly HYC Carvery.

Saturday it was back on the water for day 1 of the championship. The weather gods smiled on us and Ross Tellier, our PRO, ran five races in a variety of wind from five to ten knots. At the end of day one there was a tie for first, and only one point back was third. Saturday evening saw the entire regatta sit down to a delightful dinner, provided by The Grannies for Africa, and then music from The Moonlights.

Sunday proved to be a very light wind day and the competitors were kept on shore until noon, when the wind finally filled, and the race committee got one more race in before the final start time of 1400.

Final Results:
Gold medalists: Nicole Bastet and crew of Hudson Yacht Club, QC - winners of the CYA Women's National Keelboat Championships Trophy.
Silver medalists: Marg Hurley and crew of Nepean Sailing Club, ON
Bronze medallists: Melodie Gummer and crew of Kingston Yacht Club, ON
4th Gillian Thompson and crew of Kelowna Yacht Club, BC
5th Karen Albert and crew of Toronto, ON
6th Erin Harris and crew of Hudson Yacht Club, QC
7th Karen Fowler and crew of Bedford Basin, NS
8th Marian Kuiper and crew of Hudson Yacht Club, QC
9th Toni Hobbs and crew of Toronto, ON
10th Cathy Bredt and crew of Hudson Yacht Club, QC

At the end of a busy and fun filled weekend, it was agreed that the 2012 CYA WNKC would go to Victoria BC, so ladies start now and plan plan on competing.
