Toronto Hospice Regatta Preview

J/80s sailing downwind J/22 Ontario Championship On The Line!
(Toronto, ONT, Canada)- The National YC, situated in front of Toronto’s magnificent skyline, is hosting their annual Redpath Toronto Area Hospice Regatta this weekend along with the J/22 Ontario Provincial Championship!  Sailed on the aquamarine waters of Lake Ontario, the fleet is looking forward to a beautiful weekend of sailing with lightish airs from just about every single point of the compass.

In addition to the J/22s sailing their provincial event, the J/70s and J/80s in the Toronto area will also be participating.

The J/22s have a nice fleet competing with six teams competing from the local club. Notable teams include Ash Das’s DAS BOOT, Chris Hobbs’s FLAWED LOGIC, Rob Bartholomew’s MIGHTY MOUSE and Geoff Bayne’s THREE’S COMPANY.

In the J/70 fleet, an experienced veteran from Port Credit YC, Scott Weakley’s REX, will be taking on Tony Gaffney’s DYNAMO, Hadrian Corning’s EMILEE and Ali Bilgen’s ICE3.

J/80s have a symphony of players hoping their version of Mozart’s “Clarinet Concerto” will keep them in the running.  Chief competitors vying for Lake Ontario J/80 supremacy may be Gary Stephenson’s FLYER, Brian Mellon’s JIBBERISH, Lawrence Alexander’s JIGGERS, Eric Jacob’s UGILAJUG or Bart Smit’s NAUTICAL SYMPHONY!  For more Redpath Toronto Hospice Regatta sailing information
