RLWYC has graciously agreed to host the 2019 Laser and Laser Radial Canadian Masters Championships, August 16-18, 2019. Competitors will be enamoured by the stunning beauty of Lake of The Woods. The lake borders both Canada and the US, stretches over 70 miles long and contains over 14,000 islands. The northern part of the lake is situated on the Canadian Shield, providing breathtaking vistas, crystal clear fresh water and ample opportunity for sailors to test their skills. RLWYC was established in 1903 and has a deep and rich sailing history. Scows were the foundation of sailing in the 1920’s and that tradition continues to this day with up to twenty scows racing every Sunday in July and August. The club has hosted several major sailing events over the years including the Canadian Woman’s Laser Championships, Canadian Opti Championships and most recently Sail West in 2017. Its home to Olympian Sandy Riley, who represented Canada at the 1976 Olympics in the Finn class. The RLWYC Yacht Club will be an event to remember. Their volunteer base is phenomenal, and will no doubt leave all competitors satisfied. They are excellent regatta organizers and exceptional hosts. The club is situated on an island with a stunning clubhouse, ample space to rig your boats and only a short sail to the starting areas. Although situated on an island, the organizers will make sure someone is on the mainland to transfer you and your boat to the club. Billeting with local club members and cabin owners is another tradition the club is known for. I highly recommend you get in touch with the accommodation chair of the event if you are interested in this option [see: https://rlwyc.ca/2019-laser-masters/]. The three-day event will no doubt provide excellent racing opportunities. You won’t regret making this event part of your 2019 masters race schedule.
