2018 Poise Cove Classic Recap

Eleven sailors from the Sunshine Coast Laser Sailing Association came out the 7th annual 2018 Poise Cove Regatta. We had great winds all day getting off ten races and after the marks were rounded and the wins were tallied up. Nick Farrer came 1st with Richard Starling 2nd and Grzegorz Krolikowski 3rd.

Thanks to Paul and Queen Ellen for a great job on the committee boat. Thanks to Dennis Olson and Brian Fournier for the journey Thanks to Greg Deacon and Karl for the safety boat. Thanks to Richard for lending us his tent shelter, It was a great day by the hospitality of Roy Wigard who lets a bunch of crazy laser sailors take over his yard each year. And congratulations to this years Poise Cove Nick Farrer Classic winner who placed first with six bullets.

Canada Day Sail

The Maple Leaf was flying from the mast of almost every boat.

Our Sunday Sail fell on Canada Day this year, so we decided to fly the maple leaf from out top masts and do a little parade around the inlet and a sail past the Lighthouse Pub and the Porpoise Bay Harbour.

One of our member Kevin McEvoy always wears Hawaiian t-shirts out sailing, so we decided to all wear our own Hawaiian Shirts to add even more colour to our fleet. It was a windy and great day out with the Sun coming out from behind the clouds for the afternoon. Could we ask for anything more?

Funny you say that…

Grzegorz Krolikowski, Dennis Olson and Robert Dall joined Bruce Morris on Capella for the 29th Annual Malaspina Regatta, and we placed third! Which was an awesome showing for the crew on a boat “slightly” larger than our lasers!

New Float Work Party

With the 2018 Laser Sailing Season coming up soon we had to get out to the marina and build a new rack for our third float. Luckily mother nature gave us some decent weather on a Sunday, April 15th to get our new rack built.

2018 New Years Sail

Our 7th Annual New Years Day Sail took place at the Poise Cove Marina.

It was a sunny but calm day out of the Porpoise Bay with Dennis Olson and Ken Olson along with Robert Dall all taking turns out on a laser to get the first sail of the year in!

Sea Cavalcade Regatta by Gibsons Sailing Club

We were invited on behalf of Bruce Kerr and the Gibsons Sailing Club to participate in the Sea Cavalcade Regatta in the Shoal Channel for the Last Sunday in July.

Seven of us packed up our boats and took them down to Gibsons Landing to race with the 13 youth in the channel. Even though Lasers are designed as a car topper and “easily” transportable it’s still took some doing to get the boats down to Gibsons Marina and rigged up for the event. But once we got out on the water with decent wind and sunny skies the extra effort was worth it.

The seven SCSA members were happy to take part and sail on a new course, with different wind flow, and new ocean currents. A total of 20 boats were on the water with 420’s, Optimists and Laser 4.7 and the standard laser all racing around the marks.

We hope to be back next year.

 

6th Annual Poise Cove Classic

We had good winds and 12 lasers out on the waters of Porpoise Bay for the 6th Annual Poise Cove Classic.
