ILCA Vikings tough it out in Gimli

On the weekend of June 14, the Viking Cup & Breadbasket Championship was held at the Gimli YC and was scheduled as that last qualifier for the Manitoba Games to be held in Dauphin, August 11-17 .

Planned as a weekend of races, 35 sailors from the C420, 29er and ILCA classes plus a group of Optis took part in the coaching sessions, but on Saturday, 30 knot winds arrived and only the ILCA sailors braved the blow. A tough bunch! The 420s, 29ers and Optis opted for the prudent decision.

The final line up for the Manitoba Games was complete following the event.
