Montreal, the August 25th, 2015 - The 4th regatta of the Quebec Circuit was held this past weekend at the Club de la Baie de Beauport in Quebec. With thirty athletes competing from all over the province, the event was a great success.
In the amazing setting of Baie de Beauport, sailors competed in Laser, Radial, Optimist and RS-X classes.
On Saturday, the wind was light allowing the athletes to finish only two races for the Optimists and three races for the Lasers. On Sunday, the conditions were more favourable with sunny weather and the sailors completed five races during the day.
As for the participants, we would like to highlight Ecole de voile de l’Outaouais that had a fleet of 6 boats. Wondereful participation for this club which has been growing for 2 years and is involved both in the development of sailing and in competition.
The Federation thanks all the volunteers who were involved in the success of this event. Thank you to the Club de la Baie de Beauport, the organizers and the sponsors including Helly Hansen, for allowing the athletes to receive several prizes.
Congratulations to all!
