The grass roots program, started several years ago, has started to produce some outstanding match racers from the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. In fact, the top three teams in the CYA Canadian Match Championships all hailed from RCYC.
Sunday's racing in Toronto Harbour brought beautiful sunshine and winds out of the east at 15-20 knots. These excellent conditions allowed all races in the semi finals, finals, and consolation rounds to be easily finished. David Pelling and his team of umpires were pleased with the excellent level of competition this year, especially with the three women's teams.
David Jarvis and his team of organizers and race officers did an outstanding job of keeping the rotations moving and the course and start line set squarely.
Rounding out the top spots were:
1st Peter Wickwire and crew Tim Bishop and Matt Christie from RCYC
2nd Jen Provan and crew Martha Henderson, Katie Abbott and Sue Beatty from RCYC
3rd Sharon Ferris-Choat and crew Joanne Prokop, Caroline Kaars Sijpesteijn and Bar Kaars Sijpesteijn from RCYC
4th Peter Hall and crew Trevor Parekh and Marc Farmer from RSLYC
