She is a grand lady, and, if you get a chance to sail with her, you will really enjoy this new addition to our Martin 16 fleet. Her name is ‘Rotary Way’. Her sail number is 82 – soon to be 144. Her existence is due mainly to the generous contributions of our local Rotary clubs: Belleville Rotary & Quinte Sunrise and the Trenton Rotary club. She was the talk of the AQVA regatta just held recently at Pointe-Claire QC July 26 &27th. She was skippered by Bryan Cuerrier in the Gold fleet. After being in 2nd place on day 1, she slipped a bit on day 2 finishing in 5th place in a strong line up of gold fleeters. Many of the boats were hampered by weeds in the regatta held at Lac St. Louis (a part of the St Lawrence river) and the weather played a factor. Rotary Way was near the front of the fleet on the last race when rain and lightening came calling, stopping the race, thus voiding the results for that race. Final results – fifth – with only being one point from third. Many comments were made by her competitors of how fast she was going downwind. Her next competition will be in Hamilton, Ontario for the John Farrell Memorial Regatta Provincials Aug 11th & 12th. Mac Attack will join in as well with 2 racers in Gold fleet and hopefully two in Silver. A big thanks to all of Quinte Sailability sailors for making this all happen through your fund raising efforts.
