This Saturday, March 7th we intend on hosting the 2020 Canadian Championships on the Bay of Quinte.

Bay of Quinte, Herkimer Boat Launch, Belleville, Ontario.jpg

We are also looking for volunteers in helping with this regatta.   I will make sure you have front row sight of the mark roundings and starts. 😀 If you are interested in helping out, it would be very much appreciated. Please send me an email if you can help  petervanrossemsr@gmail.com or call my number below.

Please make sure your insurance is up to date and you are covered for ice boat racing.   Sending a copy of your proof of insurance to my email address is helpful if you intend on racing.

If the ice holds out for Sunday, we will do another unsanctioned regatta where we record our own finishes...I will hold the score sheet in case one would like up grade your score for a better finish.😀 Bribes accepted. (Not applicable for the Canadian Champs)

Stay tuned to the NEIYA site https://theneiya.org/  and IDNIYRA bulletin board http://www.dnamerica.org/forum/  for further details and updates.

  Regards Peter Van Rossem
