FROM THE STERNSHEETS
It may be surprising but there
seems to be a dearth of news at this time of year - everyone must be hard
at fitting out. Please take time to write us, we’ll print anything!
The Canadian Championships
are taking shape. A total of five races will be sailed on a course
off Gibraltar Point under the auspices of the LSSA and the RCYC.
Out of town boats may be launched
at the National YC which has three cranes, and tows will be available on
Friday night (running lights mandatory) to the RCYC clubhouse. Boats
arriving Saturday will be towed to the start-line from the National, or
if you’d like to sail, you may launch at the Toronto Sailing & Canoe
Club. Some arrangement will be made to provide box lunches although
we haven’t decided whether to issue them in the morning or from a crash-boat.
We’ll fix it anyway because it will be too far to sail to the club.
We can promise you excellent racing (if your boat is a registered Wayfarer)
and social events including a cocktail party on Saturday and a dinner on
Sunday. If you need accommodation please drop us a line.
Of interest to sailors in the
Toronto area is the Annual Dance of the Lake Sailing Skiff Association
at the Royal Canadian YC on June 7th at $3.00 per couple.
ANYONE FOR A CHIN-WAG ABOUT BOATS?
Please come to the Queen City
YC on Friday, May 17th for a grand evening of film watching and chewing
the fat. Ferries from the foot of York Street at 6.45 p.m., 7.15
p.m., 8.15 p.m. and 9.15 p.m. Better still, catch the ferry at 5.15 p.m.
or 5.45 p.m. and have dinner on the Island. Bar facilities will be
much in existence and your genial Chairman, Wally Cavill, will make sure
the evening is enjoyable.
OPEN LETTER TO ALL U.S. OWNERS
We are faced with a problem
each year when the time comes around for the North American Championships.
Every year we hope that the holiday week-ends will coincide but once again
we’re in a quandary up here. We have the dates fixed, arrangements
under way; everything looks fine except that there will be no entries from
the United States. The general feeling here is that we cannot really
run a series of this nature in less than five races, four to count, but
the situation demands some thought. Could we have three races on
Sunday, rather than the present one on Saturday, two Sunday and two on
Monday? And, if we did this and had only three races to count, how
many boats would come to Toronto from the States? We want you to
have a crack at this Trophy and we would like to hear your views, comments
and criticism. Will you write to -
42 GLEN ELM AVE., APT.
TORONTO 7, ONTARIO,
All your letters will be welcomed
One last word - give yourself
a treat and look in at the Sailing and Boats Exhibition at the Central
Library in Toronto. This is an exhibition of books on all aspects
of sailing and is sponsored by the British Canadian Trade Association and
the Toronto Public Libraries. Open daily until May 11th.
