The Soling Class Regatta was a huge success! Thank you everyone who participated and contributed!
Solings Thank you
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to those boat owners who either relocated their boat within the KYC harbour, or moved their boat to POH for the week of the Soling regatta. The regatta was a great success, and visiting racers appreciated having a secure and safe place to moor their boats for the week.
On behalf of myself and Paul Davis (regatta chair), further thanks go to all other members and volunteers who helped on the water, on land, and in countless other ways. As well, our Manager and his staff are commended in delivering top notch services to our visiting racers.

| Beer of the Week
Beau's Farm Table I.P.A.
It is an assertive yet-very-drinkable India Pale Ale that marries typical flavour profiles of the British and American interpretations of this style. Farm Table: I.P.A. is unfiltered, and dry-hopped in our conditioning tanks to amplify the hop aromas
A boat-load of extra hops (a natural preservative) made India Pale Ale (I.P.A.'s) historically better suited for long voyages when shipping to British soldiers stationed afar, including India. Their distinct taste caught on, and now these ales are widely known and enjoyed for their aggressively hopped aromas and flavours.
Expect a bold-yet-balanced blend of hop and bitterness and both citrus and earthy hop aromas, complimented by bready maltiness and caramel flavour.
| Wine of the Month
Gerard Bertrand 2013 Languedoc is a well balanced, dry, bright red wine produced from two fantastic grape varietals – Syrah and Grenache. These grapes alone commonly make for delicious wines because of the terroirs they thrive in. The Languedoc province throughout the South of France is one of the largest wine growing regions in the world. Soil in the region contains abundant limestone and gravel, along with an array of shrubbery that over many thousands of years has enriched the soil with fragrance. Because it’s so large, Languedoc provides a variety of terroirs that allow for unending combinations and concentrations of different varietals.
