Montrealers on the podium at Soling World's

Sailing CAN #225, Peter Hall, Phil Karrigan, and Jay Deakin from the R.St.L.Y.C. have taken second place overall at the World Championship of the Soling Class. Racing in Annapolis, the Montreal sailors won the first and last races of the week long regatta that featured all levels of wind. Two boats sank in a big blow of up to 49 knots. A lot of damage and havoc such as bent masts occurred early in the regatta, in which all levels of wind were sailed in.
