Check out the final results for the Power Smart Manitoba Games sailing event at West Hawk Lake Yacht Club. Thanks to Paul Krestanowich for all his hard work organizing this event, to Race Officer Chris Aldridge and his on water crew for dealing with all the uncertainties on the water, to all on land volunteers for keeping everyone fed and happy, to our 16 coaches and managers and our 40 athletes for a great performance at this memorable event.
The first 2016 Sail Canada regional championship kicked off with Sail West at Gimli Yacht Club! Teams from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, BC, including one athlete from Nova Scotia, had been on site training since Wednesday, in preparation for racing over the weekend.
The event, which also included the Laser Canadian Championships, was the official test event for the 2017 Canada Summer Games, taking place next August in Winnipeg. A full team of volunteers and officials was hard at work ensuring everything went off without a hitch, all part of the preparations that are well underway for the Games next summer.
With medium conditions on Saturday and Sunday, racing was sure tight. Sailors who came out on top received prizes thanks to Helly Hansen.
