AQVA’s 17th annual Coupe du Québec took place July 29-30th at PCYC.  The 22 participants came from Ontario, Alberta, the US and of course Montreal.

Racing took place in the usual format, Gold fleet for more experienced racers and Silver fleet for those who are learning to race.

 The weather was perfect, sunny and warm with shift northeast winds on Saturday and steady southwestern winds on Sunday. 

The race committee, chaired by Pierre Carpentier, ran perfect races that were well suited to the conditions.

 PCYC members offered their time in a number of volunteer roles:  spectator boats, protest committee, press boat, help on the docks and companion sailing in the Silver fleet.

 As usual, AQVA sailors finished at the top of the fleets.  Pierre Richard took 1st place in Gold, followed by Sara Cooper of Calgary in

2nd and Brian Peckover of Nepean in 3rd.  The Silver fleet winner was Nate Besio from Vermont followed by AQVA’s Monique Trudel and Guy Bergeron in 2nd and 3rd.

 PCYC continues to be the favourite location for adapted sailing events thanks to the friendly welcome from the members and staff,

our beautiful location and the great sailing conditions on Lac St-Louis. 

 A big thank you to all the PCYC members who contributed to the success of the regatta!

PCYC will be a big contributor to the sailing competition at the upcoming Canada Games in Winnipeg Manitoba from July 28 - August 4

PCYC sailors will represent Québec in both the Men’s and Women’s Single Handed Sailing.

Lea Desgroseilliers will sail for Québec in the Laser Radial class. Lea has put a tremendous amount of effort this season to reach her goal of representing Québec. At the recent TRY regatta, which decided the selection for the games, Lea  was not only the top female radial sailor she was the overall winner in the radial class. She is now one step closer to her next goal of standing on the podium.

Justin Vittecoq will sail for Québec in the Laser class, Justin, who is a new member of PCYC, won the trials for the games with straight bullets. Justin is no stranger to major youth events.He has competed nationally and internationally in every class he has sailed, from Optimist, to Byte, to Laser. He has put in such a significant amount of time on the water over the years honing his natural skills and developing his Laser technique that he is bound to be a tough competitor. The next question is can he "own the podium"?
