Y Flyers and Lasers turned out for a warm and blustery Vale regatta. Andrew Dasys was on hand to get some photos of the action and of some of the spectators.
Despite the chilly temperature and nuking winds, the six Lasers turned out for a couple of informal fun races. Thanks to Jude for running the races. Matt Smider, a former member, showed us how to sail the boat flat despite not having sailed a Lase for four years. The photos were taken by Indrek. Great fun was had by all!
Five Lasers and three Y Flyers were on hand for a blustery first race of 2016. The strong and shifty winds blew away the accumulated cobwebs acquired over the winter. The rescue boat had a busy afternoon. Results are under the "racing" tab.

It is with the greatest pleasure the Laser Fleet congratulates Scott Avery, now to be known as Scott the Rocket Avery, on winning the Big Sound Challenge Regatta at Parry Sound on Aug. 15/16. Four SYC members attended staying at Tony Hick’s magnificent cottage right on the sound. After 5 races in light to moderate winds it all came down to the last with Scott needing a first place and win he did making no mistakes under pressure, sailing smart and fast as he did all weekend. Scott is our Laser fleet captain promoting our club our sport with boundless enthusiasm and he made us proud.
