The Alberta Cup and start of the Fall Series was a great weekend of racing. The winds were up, the sailing was competitive, the starts were hectic and the party Saturday night at EYC was a big hit. Congratulations to everyone who participated and made the Alberta Cup/Fall series a huge success.
A special congratulations to Don Iveson and his crew for placing 1st in Point of Order, Murray Erickson and his crew in Winedown for a great 2nd place finish and Paul Kantor in Windswept in 3rd place.
I would also like to extend a special thank you to Dave and Donna Donnelly and Dave and Donna Thompson for being our race committee on Dancin' Bear. As well, congratulations are in order to all of the EYC membership and the Wabamun Sailing Club on hosting and running the Provincials. It was great to see all the boats out on the lake.
Also, better late than never, I would like to pass along the results of the Jack and Jill Race, which took place on Aug. 26th. The finishing order was Winedown 1st (Sylvia and Murray), Windswept 2nd (Jen and Paul), Tipsy 3rd (Ava and Jefrey), Manana 4th (Linda and Barry), Windchime 5th (Rachel and Ian), Reflection 6th (Anita and John), Arana 7th (Liz and Greg).
The season isn't over yet, and The Rose Cup is yet to take place. Due to the inability to get the Committee boat securely anchored due to high winds and big waves, the Rose Cup was cancelled and has been rescheduled for next Sunday, September 17. Racing starts at noon. See attachment!
Please note that after some discussion, the Fall Series will continue to be held on Saturdays with starts at noon. My apologies for any confusion there.
See you all this weekend,
SBYC Fleet Captain
