First edition of the offshore race - Route Rimouski-Anticosti

'First edition of offshore race Route Rimouski-Anticosti'    Colin Tourangeau

The Canadian Wildlife Federation is proud to present the first edition of the Route Rimouski-Anticosti regatta that will depart on Sunday, July 10. The Organizing Committee of the Marina de Rimouski is satisfied with the fleet consisting of ten yachts enrolled in two classes. There will be a class for Mini 6.50 meters and another according to the IRC.

Inspired by Georges Leblanc’s Challenges, the race will follow a route which start from Rimouski to get around Anticosti Island in the counterclockwise direction to return to Rimouski with a passing buoy at Ste-Anne-des-Monts. This journey of 650 nautical miles offshore is a challenge that attracts competitors and high caliber sailors. After the St. Lawrence Estuary, the sailors will face the conditions of the Gulf St. Lawrence that can be harsh.

The fleet will consists of four Mini 6.50 m including Pogo Loco's skipper Philippe Laville who took part in the Bermuda-One-Two race finishing second this year. The ocean racer Georges Leblanc, who also serves as spokesperson for the event, will take part with his VOR 60 sailboat, OcéanPhénix.

This race is taking place during the marine festival Cap à l’est, le fleuve en fête (www.cap-a-lest.com) that convey the public to cultural and exhibition shows to promote the beauty of the St. Lawrence River called the sea by the residents. There is also an other regatta taking place from Saturday to Sunday, 24 Heures de Rimouski, which consist of cumulating the maximum distance on a triangle path of 6.5 miles in front of the City during 24 hours. The public will be able to keep track on competitors on the website www.regates-rimouski.com.

The Race Committee has the support of the Quebec Sailing Federation and International Sailing Quebec and works on other projects for next year. The participants in Route Rimouski-Anticosti can obtain their classification for next year Transat Quebec Saint-Malo. This event is organized by Station nautique Rimouski-Mitis which is a member of Association maritime du Québec.
