Polar Bear – Dec 21st

Polar Bear Series / Racing / VRC

The rain stopped, the fog burned off and we even got a little wind for the December 21st Polar Bear races. We had another great turnout with about 30 boats and their crews coming out. What a great way to wrap up 2014. The race committee set a QC, freighter, finish course for all divisions for the first start. Div 3 and 4 started first with a shorter course, with Div 1 and 2 starting 5 minutes late... Read More »

Wind! Again! So far, this polar bear series has seen more wind than the whole of last year’s series, and this is only the second day of racing. The committee boat, Beautiful Day, set up in it’s normal spot near QC. Soon 23 boats were circling around the start line, waiting for the start sequence.

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 »
