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: www.laser.org).
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: sailmanitoba.com/2020-manitoba-games.
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).
