Queen’s seven year Team Racing National Championship streak has come to an end. Congratulations McGill!

Here’s the summary from the organizers at Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club.

Saturday brought a brisk fall day with consistent winds over 25 knots with gusts above 30 knots. After 3 hours of trying to wait out the heavy winds in favor of less brutal conditions we were forced to cancel racing for the day.

Sunday saw a much cooler 0 degree day with 16-18 knots gusting up to 27 knots. In order to facilitate a full round robin in one day, racing was pushed back to a 9:30 start time. The day started with good breeze and the first snow of the season in Montreal.

Conditions became a bit more aggressive as the day progressed resulting in some broken boat parts, retired teams, and very cold swimming. Ultimately we were able to complete a round robin with the teams that stayed on the water and were able to handle the cold weather.

Congratulations to McGill University for winning, and thank you to all of the teams for coming.

Indeed!
