OMDA celebrated another Labour Day weekend at the Belwood Lake Sailing Club in Fergus (near Guelph).
The early arrivals on Friday afternoon had a chance to admire the Mirror 16 that Paul Lingen had restored and was now keeping at Belwood.
Later, it was time for dinner and dessert!
Followed by a moonlit campfire.
Although it was a beautiful day on Saturday, there was barely a breath of wind. Eventually the race committee postponed until Sunday.
That evening, we held the pot-luck dinner and the AGM on the B.L.S.C. club house deck to take advantage of the great weather.
Followed by a campfire!
We woke up on Sunday to some more beautiful weather, but there was also some wind. Since everybody was still rigged from the previous day, we were able to get out on the water quickly to take advantage of the wind. We squeezed in four races before the wind began to die in the afternoon.
Mat Won the first race.
Mat and Marika got a good start in the second race, but Steve caught up and won the second race with a convincing lead.
Marika took here revenge in the third race - even breaking out the spinnakers didn't help Steve and Mat catch up!
There was a tight race for second place: Steve rounded the final mark ahead of Mat and Les, but Mat managed to get to the finish line before him.
Marika pulled off another first place finish in the fourth race to squeak to overall victory in the regatta!
