The Canadian Optimist Dinghy Championships, hosted by the Lunenburg Yacht Club, have concluded with two races sailed on Friday to complete 12 races in total. Conditions for the event challenged the 85 sailors from across Canada, the US and Bermuda.

Ranging from 20-25 knots on Monday to a peaceful six to ten knots on Friday, the overall winner was Justin Vittecoq (Blue Fleet - 11 and 12 year olds) from Hudson Yacht Club/RCYC with consistent top ten finishes to finish two points ahead of Jared Collinson (Red Fleet 13, 14 and 15) from the Royal Canadian Yacht Club.

The other sailors in the top five were Peter Ehvert (RCYC - Red), Coralie Vittecoq (HYC/RCYC - Red) and Matti Muru (RCYC - Red). The winner of the White Fleet (10 and under) was Campbell Patton from Bermuda finishing in 22nd place overall. Top competitor in the 10 boat Green Fleet (Novice) was Samuel Court from the Lunenburg Yacht Club. Final results for the Championship and Green Fleets can be found here.

As well as the overall winner of the regatta and the Blue Fleet, Justin has been invited by the Bermuda Optimist Dinghy Association to sail in the RenRe Junior Gold Cup to sail against some of the top Opti sailors from around the world whose countries are represented at the Argo Gold Cup Match Racing.
