Kingston Yacht Club Hosts 2018 Eastern Yachting Circuit
Kingston Yacht Club hosted the 2018 Eastern Yachting Circuit for a weekend of racing with over 300 participants. Sixty-one boats registered for the weekend with 56-crossing the starting line in four PHRF Divisions and a Shark fleet.
Thursday July 12th saw the long distance race take place – 20 nm total, including the circumnavigation of Melville Shoal, Simcoe Island and Bayfield shoal. A one-hour postponement occurred due to light air and then the infamous Kingston 9-11 kt thermal fired up. The lead boats finished in four hours!
Course racing began on Friday July 13th, continuing through the 14th. Five course races of approximately four nautical miles were completed over the two days with winds ranging from four knots to 11 knots from the West-Southwest. All five divisions enjoyed sailing the same windward-leeward course.
A great time was had by all participants and volunteers throughout the event. North Sails Toronto was happy to contribute to the weekend of fun for racers. Congratulations to all competitors and podium finishers!
