2014 SLYC Racing Team Notice + Schedule


Racing Parents,

We are excited for the upcoming sailing season and look forward to getting to know all of you better. This summer the regatta schedule is slightly different from past years, due to the occurrence of the 29er World Champs that will be held in Kingston at the end of July. We have created a tentative schedule for the upcoming summer (below).

We are confident that both YODE and CORK are regattas we wish to attend as a full team. For the 420’s, we will be attending Four Sisters and potentially the Steerer’s Regatta which will make it a 4 day long trip. For the 29er’s, the decision between accompanying the 420’s to PCYC or attending 29er North Americans will have to be made. This will be made based on comfort levels of the sailors, the size of the fleet at PCYC, and input from parents and sailors. 

We were hoping to get a rough grasp on numbers by determining which families had 29er’s that they were hoping to have their children sail. From this, we can further discuss the best options for both the 420’s and 29er’s in terms of which regattas we feel are best to attend. We are also considering friendly regattas between our race team and the race team from Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club to provide more intensive training and balance out the rest of the summer.

We look forward to hearing back from you and finalizing the racing schedule at the Parents meeting June 29 at 1:00pm 

Any feedback on scheduling, transportation, accommodations would be greatly appreciated.
