The Ladysmith Maritime Society is hosting the first Rhumbline Fun Sail of the New Year on Saturday.
The series was started in early 2018 by local sailor Gerard Nachtegaele who had missed the fun of getting out on the bay to challenge other sailors. The series is open to all sailboats and anywhere from 5 to 10 boats generally show up.
If you have a boat and would like to enter contact organizer Marc Pettigrew at LMS 250-245-1146. He is also encouraging local residents who are interested in sailing to contact him about getting on as crew and learning how to sail. There will be a hotdog barbecue and beverage after the race.
There will be a skipper’s meeting is at 9:30 a.m. in the welcome centre on the LMS Docks below the Ladysmith Art Gallery.
Race start is at 10 a.m. with finish at 1 p.m. or earlier. Extreme weather will force cancellation.
Details are also available on the Ladysmith Maritime Society Facebook Page.
