2017 Sail Central at HYC Fruitbowl
Wednesday July 19th, 2017 - Kingston, ON
Sotheby’s Sail Central is back at Hudson Yacht Club’s Fruitbowl Regatta for a fourth year. This event has always been a summer favorite among youth sailors in central Canada. The two days of group training prior to the event offer an opportunity for sailors from different clubs and teams to train with each other, while getting coaching and tips from world class guest coaches.
Training kicks off on Thursday morning, with a great team of event coaches leading the way: two time Olympian and Silver Medalist Zach Railey (Lead Event Coach), Mike Todd (Single handed), 2016 Rio Olympian Dannie Boyd (Double handed), Heather Myatt (Optimist) and Max Robinson (Boards) leading. Training continues through Friday with structured on water sessions and daily de-briefs for each group.
Racing will commence on Saturday for Laser, Radial, 420, Boardsailing and Optimist fleets. With over 130 boats registered so far, it is sure to be a great event! Sailors who come out on top will be competing for prizes provided by Sail Canada partner, Helly Hansen.
Stay tuned for results through the weekend!
