2007 MONTREAL STAR OPEN


Here is an announcement from Alain Vranderick about an important upcoming Montreal regatta. - Ralph

The Quebec Star fleet will be hosting it's annual invitational regatta on the weekend of June 16-17 at Club Nautique Deux-Montagnes, on what has proven to be over the last few years, a great venue for Star racing.

While the Bacardi Cup/mid fleet finishing team of Hendershot / Vranderick will reunite to defend their reputation as fleet champs on their home waters, they will be joined by the usual suspects from the Quebec Star fleet, teams from our adjoining province (including Canadian Olympic reps Brian Cramer and Tyler Bjorn), and teams from the Northeastern United States.

A post sailing BBQ dinner and beer is included with the entry fee. After dinner, for out of town sailors, I might be convinced in providing a tour of the best downtown Montreal hangouts. Please be advised that if you get in trouble, I will not provide legal assistance and remember that this is a BYOM (Bring your own bail money) event.

Anybody interested in watching the action from up close, we still have some spots open on mark boats to help in organizing the course. Contact me if you want to participate in the fun.
