The Provincial Championship Regatta was held on Saturday September 15 at Sibbald Point Provincial Park.
In spite of some threatening weather, we headed out on the water.
A small shower passed by just after we were about to get started, so we got a bit wet.
The wind had shifted, so the race committee moved the start line to the new leeward mark. The good news was that the rain shower was gone. The bad news was so was most of the wind!
Good news for the sailors: the wind had picked up a bit. Bad news for the race committee: it was coming fromm a completely different direction, so they had to move the start line yet again.
We had some quite decent wind for the fourth and last race.
The Race Committee (Hanzo and Aleid) head back after retreiving the marks.
Most of us retired back to the campsites for a potluck dinner and a campfire.

Sadly, all the participants were sailing single-handed. This means no one actually qualified as the provincial champion, since this requires a double-handed crew!
Many thanks to Hanzo vanBeusekom and Aleid Brendeke for serving as the race committee. They did a great job in tricky conditions!
