On Sunday we had out last practice in Gimli for our 29ers, Lasers and Bytes. After a relaxed trailer packing thanks to all the parents for helping us we left the Gimli YC for the summer. A big thank you to the Gimli YC for letting us use their facilities in May and June. We will be back in September for some more racing.

With lot’s of wind on Saturday all athletes got some good training in. It became a bit of a challenge when the wind picked up within minutes but we managed and landed our boats on the beach. On Sunday, despite of exams, we had five Lasers, one Europe and a Byte participating in the Fish Fly Cup and we sailed six races. Good job everybody!
