A huge congratulations to Bob Carey and his committee for organizing a very successful LYRA Regatta.

A Glance at the LYRA Events of 2022

Course racing began on Thursday with the 8 Metre North American Championship. As the severe storms rolled in, the fleet postponed onshore. Around 2pm off they went to the course on Lake Ontario. An afternoon thunderstorm came rolling in and enveloped the fleet. Norseman took a bad blow and snapped its mast 12 feet off the deck. In true Corinthian fashion, three other 8 Metre competitors abandoned the race and came to aid Norseman. All crew were safe, and the mast was cut away and both boat and crew returned to shore. Day two saw three races to complete the North American Championship.

Friday was a moderate wind day and all fleets and divisions saw three races completed. It was hot and breezy and the lake was relatively flat given the evening before being southerly winds. 

Saturday the wind was blowing the dog off the leash. The 8 Metre and R Class, the NFS Fleets, as well as the Melges 15 on their own course all raced in the bay.  Sunday in true LYRA fashion brought very light winds. The Norseman competitors were loaned Jackeen and raced on Sunday to again demonstrate the Corinthian nobility of the 8 Metre fleet. Race committee was able to get 2 races off. We were able to complete all six planned races for the 8 Metre fleet, seven races for the R Class fleet, eight races for the FS fleet, seven races for the Melges 15 fleet, and four races for the NFS fleet.
