We finished the 38th annual LOSHRS series the same way we started it - with a lot of enthusiasm, friendly competition and camaraderie and fun at the dock gathering parties.
The series consists of 6 races held at 4 times during the summer. Each was well attended with an average of 76 boats at the start line.
The Course Race - 70 boats
Youngstown 2-day event - 90 boats
100 Miler - 57 boats
Dalhousie 2-day event - 84 boats
We finished the series the past weekend with the Dalhousie 2 day event. There were 84 boats on the starting line, and we lucked in with the weather. The sail over and back was challenging as there were pockets with no or light wind. Saturday the light and variable winds made the race tricky, but all finished in time for the Dalhousie dock party and finished with an evening of camaraderie and revelry. On Sunday there was a change of wind direction from southwest and later came out of the east. Regardless, it was wonderful to be on the water.
The Dock gathering party was super with many thanks to Andrew McAllister (Water Colours 1) of ReMax Reality and Gary Bell (Bikini) who supplied a keg of Pilsner from Grand River Brewing.
In addition, Andrew gave each competitor a ReMax deck of playing cards & writing pen.
Thanks again to both Andrew and Gary for your generous support of LOSHRS.
We couldn't have asked for two better days of racing!!
A Hardy Congratulations to everyone who enjoyed this friendly and fun-filled series.
All in all 2012 - our 38th year - was another great success.
