The Around PEC regatta (currently in its 19th year) is the premier long distance regatta on the Great Lakes. The event is a 3 leg long distance event which covers approximately 200 km round Prince Edward County, an island in Lake Ontario. In addition to boat speed and endurance the teams must also master navigation to find all check points and avoid any underwater obstacles on the way. The Regatta is now the Canadian F18 RAID Championship within the F18 Raid World Championship Series. The RAID series represents the long distance discipline of F18 sailing class. A great recognition to the event. The Canadian RAID Championship is scheduled for Aug 4-7 2023. Given its new national status, expectations are high for a large number of participants. The event founder and coordinator is Dave Antognini, a member of the BBCC club. He is a strong advocate for the race and is always interested in getting BBCC members to participate in the event. Feel free to reach out to Dave directly if interested. Particulars on the event can be found at:
The first regatta of the 2023 Sailing World Regatta Series was held in St. Petersburg, Fl. Tampa Bay on February 17-19. The event attracted 245 teams from 14 classes. This was the 33rd edition of the regatta which was formerly known as the NOOD "National Offshore one Design" Regatta. Both Larry and Todd Woods made the trek to Florida representing BBCC. Strong winds on the first two days helped Larry achieve three Bullets' and two 2nd's in 7 races, resulting in an overall 1st Place finish in the Foiling A-Class Division. Congratulation's Larry on the win.
