Welcome to Sail-World Canada
Great Lakes events, LVC and other Canadian sailing news!
Cruising Division - Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac 2013 MISTE Photography
Next Canadian offshore event on the schedule is the Route Rimouski-Anticosti, 650 miles in the St. Lawrence Gulf in Quebec.
While most of the attention on the west coast should be in San Francisco, the sailing event of the summer has turned out to be rather unexciting. I must admit I'm undecided as to which is worse: the on-shore arguments or watching yachts racing with a single participant on the Luois Vuitton Cup course. I sincerely hope that the spectacle improves in the weeks to come. Meanwhile, the 2013 Transpacific Yacht Race is providing some genuine excitement. 58 entries from eight countries are now on the race course, sailing from California to Hawaii. Staggered start guns over the course of six days provided slower entries with an early start, high performance yachts that started later should eventually catch up the front of the fleet by the time they reach Hawaii.
Check out the latest Sail Canada 'Sailor of the Month' report; congratulations to Nova Scotia's Graham Mann for his contribution to the sport of sailing; I hope his Sail All program catches on in the rest of the country. Bravo also to Martin Robitaille for his bronze medal at the 2013 Finn Silver Cup! Busy times for the Canadian Sailing Team where many members are in Kingston preparing for the Laser North Americans while others are competing in the ISAF Youth World Championships in Cyprus.
