It’s over folks and it was fun race for all the Salt Spring Island sailing club members that went on the race. The wind gods gave us all they had for the four day race. We had the first storm of the winter blow all weekend and it made for great sailing. The winds were clocked at over 100km on Saturna Island. I would like to go into details of what happened on the race/cruise but as the old saying goes what happened on the boyz cruise stays on the bozy cruise.
I was nice to see so many out. Over 20 boats and about 100 men. Keith Simpson is still claiming over all victory but the real winners was Salt Spring Island Sailing Club’s “Alacrity”, Skippered by the great sailor Bob Jones and crewed by Tony Meek and yours truly. The sad news is Bob is selling his beloved “Alacrity” which is a C&C 35-2. I do love to sail on the boat it just goes like a freight train. We had 40 knots on the nose and she sailed right along.
