European Championships: Report on Day Two

For Day 2 of the 2014 Wayfarer European Championships, two races were scheduled. However, to make the most of the excellent sailing conditions, the Race Officer set three races Races 3, 4 and 5 of the Championships. The reason for this extra race was to prepare for a pessimistic wind forecast for the rest [ more] 

Wayfarer Midwinters confirmed
for Jan. 30- Feb. 1, 2015 at the Lake Eustis SC


A bit of everything at the 2014
North Bay Wayfarer Weekend!!!

Light winds and warm sunshine (above) were Saturday's and Sunday's order of the day for the Don Rumble Memorial Series and the Wayfarer National Cruise Race hosted June 28-29 by the gracious folks at the North Bay YC. Monday's Poker Race on Trout Lake had to be cancelled due to lightning and Tuesday's Canada Day Race brought brisk winds and a great ride from the North Bay government dock to the North Bay YC on Callander Bay. Results posted, pics and report to follow soon.


Challenging Warm Water winds fail
to dampen Wayfarer spirits!!!

Glorious warm sunshine and rather light, shifty winds were the order of both days June 21-22 as the Conestoga SC hosted a small but high quality Wayfarer fleet in our annual Warm Water Regatta. Results posted, pics and report to follow soon.
