Over the course of its 44 year history, the race has become a favourite amongst all competitors. The race and all the on shore activities are superbly well organized by an army of friendly volunteers making everything run like clockwork, including a complex recycling system that helps the regatta meet their Clean Marine commitments.
The fleet of up to 120 yachts enjoys some highly challenging sailing given the aggressive tidal patterns that ebb and flow around Salt Spring Island.
It is scheduled for May long weekend, so the weather is pretty nice more often than not and there is definitely a holiday atmosphere amongst the hundreds of sailors that flock to the island for the race. And there's even a lamb BBQ involved!
Mischief Repeats as Overall Winner and Takes All the Silver
Eric Jespersen’s Melges 32, Mischief overtook Lawndart late in the afternoon and held her lead to the finish, winning Line Honours for first elapsed time, First Overall corrected time, and First in Division 1. Mischief wins the Marshall Sharp Trophy for First Overall and the Lady Minto Foundation Trophy for Line Honours winner.
And recognizing the emphasis that SISC is placing on running an environmentally responsible event, an award was created for Environmental Awareness among the participants. The first winner is Bill Cote and his Lightning Revenuer as the boat with a smaller environmental footprint – it was the smallest boat, had an electric motor and the boat itself was recycled as the previous owner was going to put into the dumpster.
