Official publication of the
The Wayfarer Class, 16’ Sailing Dinghy,
We didn’t have a newsletter for a while. I guess we don’t have to emphasize this. There have been things like sailing, regattas, more sailing, out of town events, more sailing, and arrangements for the North American Championships, so the subject of the newsletter was being gently postponed from one week to another. Strangely, we didn’t receive any contributions, which would have made publishing more urgent, but this of course is excusable. There is a time for talking, and that is when it is cold. (Meek excuse of the Secretary!) So now we have a few urgent things to bring up, and we will call this a newsletter.
MID-SUMMER CRASH EDITION
This summer has been full of beautiful sailing events, and we all have stories to tell about them. Ottawa and North Bay have been memorable experiences, and even some of the Toronto events were quite nice. We will have a more detailed report in September, after the North American Championships are over, and we hope that we will receive some contributions for this edition. We’ll set a deadline, September 15. Please write, we’ll print it.
NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIPS
This should be a wonderful event. We are very hopeful that there will be a record attendance of Wayfarers. Possibly about 50 boats. (If you come)
The Royal Canadian Yacht Club has helped us in every respect to plan this event, and there will be the Junior Sailing Area available to us for our boats. With some accommodation on the Island, a club with the best facilities, and efficient Race Committee under Al Mallon from the RCYC, a nice social program with a dance and Sunday Dinner – (dress up), trophies not only for the first three, but also for the last boat in each race, as well as the last boat overall, we should not only have good sailing, but a lot of fun.
For sailors who come with excess crews, i.e. wives or children, there is plenty to do on Toronto Island.
Please notify the Secretary immediately if you plan to attend, so we can send you the program. The preliminary program has been sent out last week. If you didn’t receive one, please advise us, we’ll get one out.
We’ll see you on September 5,6,7.
