VRC Summer Regatta Recap

Racing / Summer Regatta / VARC / VRC

VRC Summer Regatta and Lobster Bash sponsored by Evolution Sails and part of the BMW sponsored VARC Series After a week of sunshine, the VRC Summer Regatta started out with some decidedly un-Summer-like weather.  Fortunately that didn’t dim the spirits of the 36 skippers and their crew as the sunshine did return on Sunday afternoon.  The Lobster Bash was packed with over 160 hungry guests fi...

Polar Bear Race – 2014-03-09

Polar Bear Series / Racing / VRC

Shock and awe! There was a breeze! At just under 10 knots yet! The sun was starting to peek out after what seems like weeks of rain, and life was looking good. A depleted crew arrived on the comedy boat M.V. Perihelion at 9 AM bearing gifts of shepherd’s pie and salad, so we cast off to make our way out to English Bay and await the combatants for the final race of the season. Would anyone tu...

AWARDS NIGHT – 2014

Polar Bear Series / Racing / VRC

Plus another non-race day! It was freezing! Then it wasn’t. It was sunny, then it wasn’t. But the only constant – NO WIND. AGAIN! I cannot believe this and to be honest, I am in awe of the racers who come out time after time to do battle and the only fight they get is who gets to sit on top of the warm engine or who gets to sip the first hot toddy! On the Comedy boat we listened ... Read More »

POLAR BEAR RACE – JAN 26, 2014

POLAR BEAR RACE – JAN 26, 2014

Polar Bear Series / Racing / VRC

I cannot believe that we have only managed to set three races off this whole season so far, due to a lack of wind, and one of those barely qualified as a race, more of a drift really. Andreas Trukenbrodt wanted to use his boat this time so we set off, without radar as his machine was in the shop. Boy it was scarey out there, especially when one is used to having the equipment to hand. It really sh... Read More »
