Welcome Back Regatta a Success

The Lunenburg Yacht Club in Nova Scotia hosted the first Welcome Back Regatta on August 21-23. They had just over 200 competitors and 36 boats across five classes. Due to COVID restrictions, the club’s property had a maximum of 250 people onsite, so sailors had to be limited for health safety reasons. Winds on day one were 15-25 knots resulting in some boats retiring early. Saturday the racers were treated to a sail past by the 140’ Bluenose II. Sunday saw more manageable 10-15 knot breezes, making for exciting, close sailing. Several classes sailed up to eight races over three days. The six-boat J/105 fleet was won by Rory Macdonald's McMAC, winning seven of eight races and throwing out a third and a first to win with all bullets. John Sapp's V-TACK and Richard Gerstenberger's AXIS finishing second and third, respectively. For more event information, visit https://yachtscoring.com/event_results_cumulative.cfm?eID=13097.
