Feb 1 – Western Regional IOM Championship Regatta announced

More good news for the Canadian IOM Class. We have approved giving the sanction for the BC/Western Regional Championship Regatta for the IOM Class to the Steveston RC Sailing Club. The really good news on top of that is that the event will be held at a new and picturesque site at the facilities of the Whistler Sailing Association in Whistler, BC. This is a location noted for building winds nearly every day. The event will be conducted over the weekend of June 13-14, 2020 with a more detailed schedule to be covered by the event NOR and subsequent SI.

This will be a second event to be used for the IOM Class Ranking scores. This is also the first Regional event to be held on the mainland of BC and it is great to see the activity in this area continue to grow. Watch for the NOR and enter early.

Jan 22 – 2020 IOM National Championship Regatta

On behalf of the IOM class in Canada I am extremely pleased to be able to announce that the Canadian National Championship Regatta will return to Eastern Canada. It will take place around the weekend of September 12 -13 at the Kingston Yacht Club in Kingston, ON. This is due to the ongoing hard work of Paul Switzer to ensure that all the details of holding this event are resolved favourably and making it all possible to go ahead.

In part CRYA is seeing an increase in IOM yachts being registered in Eastern Canada and that is a refreshing change from some of the past years. The time is right and it feels good to be able to move the event to Eastern Canada again.

The exact schedule and more details will be available over the next weeks as the NOR for the event is created and published. Hopefully we will see entries from all across Canada to come sail at a location that is famous for providing great sailing environment.
