Toronto Training Camp and Icebreaker OCR

On May 14 and 15 TSCC held a training camp with Connor Higgins, Matt Dubreucq and Carol Luttmer as guest coaches. We had varying conditions allowing us to work on sailing in all conditions. With the help of video and some tips from Connor the camp was very useful.

On the weekend the Icebreaker regatta was held. On Saturday we had a big ground swell and wind ranging from 6-14 knots, making for some very tricky sailing when the wind died down. On Sunday we again had a big swell. With inconsistent winds and a drifting mark the race committee was forced to abandon two races, leaving only 1 race completed on the day. I won the regatta on the tiebreaker.
