Also competing in the Invitational Fall Regatta were Matt and Robin Koenig with their Hobie. They seemed to have a good time, despite the lack of competitors in their field.
The races, hosted by the Lake Osoyoos Sailing Club, had good winds on Saturday and Sunday which allowed for 10 races overall. Friday was a sit-on-the-beach-day with only one race. John Cormack officiated as race officer.
It should be noted that Chris Scheuren, a non-competitor, won the Turkey Award for attempting a long distance trip with a motor boat without a very necessary gas tank. Outboard motors can run without a gas tank, albeit for only five minutes. Good thing there were oars in the boat!
The LOSC would like to acknowledge the dedicated work of the clean-up crew, the shore crew, the on-water safety crew and the racing committee crew. Another huge thank-you goes to the crew who prepared, served and clean-up after each meal. Mealtimes were efficient due to their well-coordinated efforts. Thank you to Anne-Marie Brousseau and Sandra Robinson for taking charge of this task. Also, thank you to John Cowan for acting as Regatta Chairman.
In short, heart-felt thank-yous go to all of the LOSC volunteers who made the regatta a huge success. We could not host an event like this without you!
