Try: Training Regatta for Youth, big success

Under the guidance of Tof Nicoll-Griffith, TRY was a big success in its inaugural year. Registration was good (40x Opti, 16x Byte and Laser, 6x 29er and 8x 420). The youth training regatta consisted of two days of coaching and two days of racing. Madeleine Palfreeman guided the racing which had good strong winds to challenge the kids on the water. TRY is a qualifier for Lac St. Louis sailors who would like to compete in the Quebec Games. So now, local readers of Montreal Sailing can note we have two Junior training regattas. TRY on Lac St. louis and HYC's Fruitbowl on Lac Des Deux Montagnes being the other.
