This past weekend,14 Albacores completed 8 races in very light wind conditions for their North American Championship. Thanks to all the volunteers and staff who helped make this event a great success.


Peter Kraszewski, Regatta Chair and is our lead KYC organizer recently held a planning meeting. The meeting was well attended (15+ people) and a lot of ground was covered in preparation for next year's regatta. Responsibilities in various areas were assigned (race management, social, volunteers, digital media presence, marketing, trophies, harbour master, etc) and the financials started. There were even some historical memorabilia items on hand, including a set of flags for the EYC regattas going back to the 1960's and results from past EYC regattas held at KYC. The next planning/organising meeting is scheduled for November 1. If you are interested in helping out with this regatta please contact Peter K.
