Canada has two new world champions as a result of their efforts at the Laser Masters World Championships recently completed at the St Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. In the Masters Radial division, (age 45 to 54) Al Clarke, coach at Royal Vancouver Yacht Club was first and in Women’s Grand Master, (age 55 to 64), Lesley Reichenfeld, Calgary Yacht Club, was first. Conditions were windy (often > 20 knots), wavy, choppy, cool water, strong current … everything San Francisco is famous for! They both worked hard over the 6 day regatta. It should be noted that the Calgary Yacht Club was the single most represented club out of all the clubs and countries represented at this truly international event with 9 enthusiastic participants.
