Tanzer 22 North American Championship

The T22 N.A.s got off to an intense start yesterday with very high winds playing their way down the course upriver from the hosting Hudson Yacht Club. Gear break downs and a collision with a PHRF racer on the course, whose mast snapped in two, were evidence off tough conditions. No interimn results yet from the 4 races held, and a lot of the racers believe they are in a potential podium position, so the racing should continue to be hot today for the final three races. Teams from Ontario, Nova Scotia, and the two Montreal areas are competing. Yesterday, the Coupe du Quebec was won by Patrice Delhaes in his T22, Turbo for being first T22 accross the line in Hudson's annual Long Distance race.
