Civic Holiday Regatta
Despite trying conditions – lots of sun, temperatures of 30°C, no wind at the beginning of the day, and over 500° of persistent wind shifts, we managed to get three races off in the 420, handicap, and Laser fleets, two for the Fevas, and one for the Picos.
Following their ‘dress-rehearsal’ last weekend at the Mid-Ontario Regatta, Amy and Kate were once again victorious in the 420 fleet at Civic #ReLivingTheGloryDays. In the Feva fleet, Isabella and Trinity won the regatta with two bullets #PowerTeam. David and Biz Agnew took home the gold in the handicap fleet, and (brace yourselves, are you sitting down?) Richard Roberts won the Laser fleet.
On our little course, Collin Alton-Weightman won the Pico fleet sailing solo, and Braden Taylor was our top WetFoot sailor of the regatta.
Congratulations to everyone who came out and thanks for toughing out the lack of wind and constant course shifts.
Tuesday Movie Night
This Tuesday at 6 o’clock in the new building. Bring a re-usable cup and a dollar to get in. Juice and popcorn will be served and there will be a second movie (also a dollar) for all those turning 13 by the end of the year (or older).
Wednesday: Poker Day
This Wednesday, we will teach our youngest sailors all about gambling #ShhhhhYouDidn’tHearThat (the older sailors are already pros, they’ve been doing this fun day for years). Each boat will start with two cards and sail to different points on the lake to collect the best possible poker hand. The boat with the best hand at the end of the day wins!
Friday: Toga Dance
*See ‘Saturday: Toga Dance’
Saturday: Toga Dance
To coincide with the Non-Gala Gala (see ‘Non-Gala Gala’), we have pushed back our weekly dance by one night #NoExcusesParents #BabysittingProvided. It will still start at 7 and ends at 9. Costs a dollar to get in and pop, freezies, and candy will be sold.
This Saturday, we are once again hosting the Non-Gala Gala. It is the party of the summer – you don’t want to miss it. It starts at 7. Bring your best dancing outfits (or a Toga?), and if you are able to bring an hors d’oeuvre (it would be greatly appreciated) please let me know!
