Round Saltspring 2014:
Fast, Fun & Fair Skies
The 41st Round Saltspring Race proved to be a fast one, with the powerful Santa Cruz 70 Westerly taking line honours with a blazing elapsed time of 06:37:06. About 60 boats, two thirds of the fleet, finished before sundown, in sharp contrast to the past couple of years when light winds kept many competitors out on the course overnight. Besides giving us good winds – at least for most boats on most legs of the race – the weather gods also held back on the rain this year, waiting until after the awards ceremony on Sunday to let go with a spring shower. One happy result of the weekend’s weather conditions was that our Sunday morning brunch, held on the lawn under sunny skies, attracted an unusually well-rested and hungry crowd of sailors. A wonderful weekend overall, with huge thanks to all the hardworking Round Saltspring volunteers, our generous sponsors, and our enthusiastic race participants. (Silk Questo photo).
