Guelph Lake, Ontario, August 26, 2018

Report by Julian Inglis

Canadian National Championships/Ontario Open were held on Guelph Lake this past weekend. Despite some rain and a few thundershowers interrupting things on day one, the wind held through the entire regatta with a relatively constant (for Guelph Lake) 8 to 12 knots throughout. Giving us two days of fantastic racing.

Report by Harri Palm

The Deed Of Gift for the Leckie Trophy stipulates that the Snipe Canadian Championships Regatta shall have three races to constitute a regatta, and after the original attempt in Toronto back in early July only managed one light air race, the Canadian Snipe sailors decided to try again at Guelph Lake on Sept. 16-17. This time they got their championship.


Canadian Nationals - Ontario Open

Guelph Lake, July 2-3, 2016

(SCIRA Canada)

Conditions on Guelph Lake were ideal over the weekend for the Canadian Snipe Championship/Ontario Open. Day one was breezy, with gusts topping 25 knots. Over the course of the first three races, the ten boat fleet was reduced to five, as several dramatic capsizes, gear failures, minor injuries, and general mayhem ensued. PRO Irene McNeill sent the fleet in for the day as the breeze continued to build into the late afternoon.

I recently had the opportunity to attend the Pan American Games in Toronto at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. The City of Toronto did an excellent job of welcoming the Americas and although the wind was fickle at times they managed to get the races in.

What I found really interesting was all the familiar faces I saw that were coaching the participating teams. Mark Reynolds, George Szabo, Christian Noe and Ernesto Rodriguez all Snipe sailors who were coaching. Mark and Christian were coaching those sailing boats other than the Snipe. Torben Grael, past Snipe World Champion, was also there I am sure to offer advice to his daughter Martine and the Brazilian team.
