Nine teams complete for coveted York/Stolz Cup Match Race held at RCYC August 6-7 on the waters of Toronto Harbour.
Held in Sonars, these nine teams from Canada and the US completed a full round robin of 36 races on Saturday August 6th. Event organizer David Jarvis, provided excellent racing, equipment, and hospitality with Chris Cook rounding out the team as the Principal Race Officer.
Moving into Sunday Peter Wickwire lead the group with a flawless 8 wins, followed by Steve Lowry, and then a three way tie for third with Terry McLaughlin, Magnus Sandberg, and Oskar Johansson followed by Sharon Ferris Chaot, Hammish Matthew, Kent Colpaert, and David Storrs. Unfortunately Sunday's numerous storm cells followed by calm water took over for the morning and the consolation and Semi Finals were abondoned – with only the top four boats advancing to a best 2 out of 3 to win in the finals.
Peter Wickwire and team of James Barnash and Tim Bishop from RCYC were able to hold onto first, followed by Steve Lowry in second, Terry McLaughlin (RCYC) in third, and Magnus Sandberg of NYC. Many thanks to Chief Umpire Andrew Alberti and his team of umpires for providing on-the-water judging.
