2.4 Meter - CanAm Series January wrap up © Shan McAdoo

January was a very eventful month in the world and in the US 2.4 meter class. We now have Vaccines rolling out to and the world is lumbering awake after a Covid snooze. On the race course we have had lots of great activity as well. We had 5 days of solid racing and got 14 races in.

Roger Strube, Martin Holland and the entire gang at Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club (CHYC) kept the action going day after day. Fran Nashner Burstein and Tina Weida shot some wonderful images of the racing action and then there was the amazing competition itself. The level of event / race management rivals any club anywhere. CHYC creates a winter home for 2.4 meter sailors that is wonderful.

Dee Smith, purported to be rusty however based on race finishes appeared to be anything but. 14 starts and 10 first place finishes in the month of January. Clearly Dee is prepping for the Upcoming Worlds. The real question is, who is going to come get him. The challenge has been extended.

The rest of the podium was filled by amazing talent. Bruce Millar sailed with a jib boom and seemed to have no problem finding the gas pedal. For those in need of reduced confusion when sailing, this could be good news. Jeff Linton came out with consistent sailing and kept people guessing.

US Class President Tony Pocklington gave hard and consistent chase to the leaders. At the same time Tony worked hard to welcome back some long missing 2.4 sailors and new sailors to the class (Julio Reguero and Kathy Breslin respectively)

So the month is over, we sailed hard despite the pandemic and we kept the flame alive for competition in the new year.
