Falcon Yacht Club hosted the Falcon Cup on Sunday, September 10th. This regatta was also the Provincial Master Championships and the Provincial Optimist Championships. What a perfect day for racing. The participants enjoyed the great weather with sunshine and a nice breeze. A total of five races were run and the Race Committee finished just in time before the breeze really picked up. Thanks to Wendy and Michael Sauer, who helped running the races and supplied their beautiful Zodiac as Race Committee Boat. Very much appreciated!
