Montreal, June 8th, 2015 - Last weekend, July 4th and 5th, the 1st regatta of the 2015 Quebec Circuit of Quebec Sailing Federation was held at the Club de voile St Maurice. More than 30 athletes from several clubs in Quebec raced on the St Maurice River. Optimist and Laser classes were present. Despite light winds, the sun was out and 7 races were completed during the week end. Athletes had to adapt to unusual conditions on the water due to the river currents were strong and the winds light, a situation we would not necessarily find on the lakes. The weekend was athletic and also cultural with a dinner and a show organized for Saturday night. The sailors were able to enjoy the beautiful river and to race in a friendly atmosphere.
Congratulations to all participants and to the organization. We invite you to rendezvous next Saturday for the 2nd regatta of the Circuit, TRY, where more than 150 athletes are expected.
