Summer of Sailing Regatta

25 Boats on the water for the weekend regatta, which included 17 Lasers, 4 Optimists and 4 dual-handed boats.

The weather was extremely variable, with the wind blowing, or not blowing, various strengths from various directions. It meant lots of adjusting by the race committee, and lots of waiting for the sailors, but sailors had a good time; and those who stayed out for all the races sailed between four and seven races each.

FYC Hosting Big Regatta in July

Mark your calendars!  On July 20 and 21, 2019, the Falcon Yacht Club is hosting the District 4 Laser Championships/Summer of Sailing Regatta.  This will be our biggest racing weekend of the season and a great reason for a Saturday evening BBQ.  Club members are encouraged to race or volunteer for the weekend.

Laser International divides North American into 25 Districts (6 in Canada).  District 4 includes Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario (including Thunder Bay).  For the “seasoned” Masters sailors in our club who are feeling extra adventurous this year, the District 4 Championships will be an excellent warm-up for the Laser Masters Canadian Championships, which the RLWYC is hosting this year in August.

Online registration for the District 4 Championships is now online at: Sailcanada.checklick/Manitoba

For the District 4’s, only those with an International Laser Class Association (ILCA) membership will be scored in the District 4 Championships. (An ILCA membership is also required for the Masters and is available online at:

For sailors born between 2003 and 2010, the District 4’s/Summer of Sailing Regatta is also the qualifiers for the South Region for the 2020 Manitoba Games.  If you know a sailor who might be interested, please visit the Sail Manitoba 2020 Manitoba Games site at:

We are also looking for a few more volunteers.  If you are not planning to race, but would still like to be a part of the event, many hands make for light work!  If you are interested in volunteering, please email Charles (on the water) or Liz (on land).
