Sail-World.com : Royal Canadian YC Old Finn Farts Regatta set for August 2012

Royal Canadian YC Old Finn Farts Regatta set for August 2012

The Royal Canadian Yacht Club’s Old Finn Farts Regatta is a celebration of 60 Years of Finn sailors domination of Olympic Sailing and the next edition is set to take place August 25-26th, 2012.

'When someone asks what boat you raced in and the answer is 'Finn' there are no other questions to be asked as that meant you were good and enjoyed the camaraderie of this unique and wonderful group of sailors.'

We have a fleet of about a dozen Ideal 18s, which, as there are no hiking straps, are ideal for those who carried
50 lbs of wet sweaters and have bad backs and creaking knees and can no longer hike (and some never did).
Organizers guarantee flat water and shifty winds in Toronto Bay.

Just watch the ferries. We intend to sail without spinnakers, two to a boat, 5-6 races each day, have a windward /leeward course, sail the leeward course slalom, and will require the two last races each day to cross the finish line sailing backwards. If we get more than 24 sailors we will find a way to accommodate all. Mainly we want to have fun and see old friends again.

Here is the schedule:

Friday night - Barbecue on the Island to tell old stories and a few lies

Saturday - Racing starts about noon

Saturday night - Jacket and Tie Dinner plus those others who like Finn Sailors or put up with them. All Finn sailors will be capable of speech at least at the start of the festivities.

Sunday - Racing starts at noon

Accommodation - We will arrange hotel rooms on Toronto Bay or if requested billeting either in homes or on boats at the club. Book early!

Entries - Limited to all Finn sailors still alive. (There is a rumour that Bruder, Van Dyne and various Rogges will appear at least in our minds.)

Entry Fee - $150 CAN Includes Barbecue and Dinner plus the usual Keg of Beer. Non-sailing guests: Dinner $75.00; Barbeque $25.00; Cash bar.

We look forward to hearing from you!
