Annapolis, June 16, 2018

By Alex Pline

After six races is near perfect Annapolis early summer conditions, Evan Hoffman/Shalom Fadullon take a strong lead in the open division (Under 30), while Christian Filter/Emily Gonzalez lead the Junior division (Snipe US Junior Nationals) and Morgan Carew/Keith Carew have a commanding lead in the Special Juniors division. The breeze was SE at 8-10 all day and PRO Steve Podlich chose to set the course up in the Severn River instead of the usual course of Greenbury Point as the power boat chop was less and the breeze better. Three more races tomorrow to round out the series. With 18 boats and great competition, almost every spot is still up for grabs!

Current entrants

By Julian Inglis (SCIRA Canada)

The 2018 Canadian Championships began with a sense of deja-vu, as competitors sat on shore on day-one and waited for wind. With cloud cover early in the day and 0-4 knots forecast, we were all pinning our hopes on the breeze that was on it’s way for Sunday. However when it came, it came with more strength than expected and some very big waves. The consensus among the fleet was that it was not safe to race, and so the second day was cancelled as well.   So… for the second year we are in the position of having to re-sail the regatta at a later date in the summer.
