Snell Wins 2017 Nationals

The results of the 48th Canadian Nationals: 2017 Seaspray Nationals

We had 8 Seasprays out with a couple of new participants, Jesse Kittleson from St. Mary’s Sailing Club (Lethbridge, Alberta) and Aaron Neifer from LNR, Alberta were able to come and take part in the racing.  Both participants will be on the Seaspray Association membership  and hopefully will consider attending the North Americans in September in Osoyoos.

Don Snell defended his title again with Hamish Ferguson placing second and Mike Sonnie in third spot.

A total of 10 races were sailed over the 3 days.  Temperatures were in the mid 30’s on Friday and Sunday so with lighter winds on those days made for challenging conditions for hydration. Saturday served up some ideal Seaspray wind conditions and more moderate temperatures where four longer races were completed.

Hope to see you all in Osoyoos in September.
