The summer of 2022 will definitely mark the intensive return to competitions after a two-year break due to Covid-19. Whether in Quebec, Canada or internationally, many athletes represented the province.
At the provincial level, TRY was the first regatta of the Quebec Circuit which took place on July 9 and 10 at the Pointe-Claire Yacht Club. More than sixty participants raced in the different development classes.
Still in Quebec, but at the national level, the Hudson Yacht Club hosted the Sail Central - Fruitbowl regatta last weekend of July 23 and 24. More than 140 athletes were present for this event in the 420, ILCA 4 and 6, and Optimist classes!
Let's go to the Maritimes for the Sail East regatta at the St Margaret's Yacht Club where a few athletes from Quebec made the trip, and dominated the ranking in the 29er fleet. Indeed, the RStLYC team, Sébastien Hubert and Laurent Tessier got the 1st place!
