Canterbury Open Photos & Results

There are some great photos up on our Christchurch Club site of last Sundays action

The first two Pascals….my design….Chris Koskella …kilopascal 29 and myself Hectorpascal 93.

A wonderful day,21 races and home by 4pm!!!
The first Canterbury Open for One metres was held at Lake Rua today, 15 boats in one fleet,conditions were top end A rig from the North thru to North West then a lighter SW for the last 8 or 9 races.

Under the experienced eye of our commodore Rod Liddy and his assistant Keith Lord the day whizzed along.

Great to see and meet or Dunedin visitors we hope to see more of you guys in the future.

Was also really nice to be part of a friendly regatta,at break times and lunch time I noticed experienced guys helping others with assistance and advice.
Each competitor took home a custom trophy and some of the sponsors product
A close look at the results will show no real domination by design or skipper with multiple wins being spread thru the fleet.
Overall winner Keith May continues his Marblehead National Champ form.
It will be interesting to see how the next 5 place getters go in the North Island Champs in a couple of weeks.

The venue, Lake Rua,is our lake of choice for fin keel boats.
It is hoped that we can develop the facilities to being our club alternate water.

Was great to see club members visiting and there does seem to be real support for the class,
encouraging to see and hear of boats being built.
We look foward to these new boats at our regular Sunday sailing.
Thanks again to our officals today,
Event sponsors ,Cassels and Sons Brewery.

Lastly a huge thank you again to the Dunedin crew and their supporters who travelled up for the event.
