Everyone we’ve spoken with in the past week about the 2012 RC Laser North American Championship agrees that the regatta was a huge success!
2011 RC Laser North American’s defending champion, Jon Elmaleh (also the sailor who designed the Radio Controlled Laser back in the mid-1990′s) bested 29 other sailors and took home the top prize for the regatta. Tops finishers from Canandaigua were Jonathan Gorbold who finished 9th overall and Terry Schmidt, the top female finisher.
Thanks to the committee members and the race committee who worked so hard and to everyone else from Canandaigua and Rochester who helped make this regatta weekend memorable!
Today at 4 p.m., we will be back to our normally scheduled programming with the final week in our Spring Series. We’ll be on the concrete dock at CYC and race until 6 p.m. (Remember, don’t park on the waterfront boat lot. Unload your stuff and park in the grass across the street please.) We’ll be heading up the hill to the clubhouse for the Father’s Day steak dinner after racing so make plans accordingly if you wish to join us.
