Fleet racing wrapped up yesterday at Squamish BC. The RC managed to get 10 races in over 4 days. One day had to be cancelled due to the tragic wildfires BC is suffering through--but the famous thermal came through and supplied excellent sailing for all.

Noah Adler (RNSYS) managed to take first overall and first Canadian. Noah is off to Cyprus for the Worlds next week! Best of luck!

Dieter Creitz of SYC (American) took 2nd. 

Andreas Steinitz of BQYC took 3rd overall and 2nd Canadian. (World team as well)

Charles Larochelle of RSTLYC took 4th.
