The Last 505 regatta in Ottawa was a week ago at NSC’s Fanfare regatta that attracted six boats and 13 participants. The Nepean Sailing Club (NSC) supported the Ottawa 505 Fleet in purchasing a 505 to promote fleet building and encourage participation in the class. The boat maintenance, sailors’ selection and mentorship were managed by a team of three 505 sailors: Paul Place, Shona Moss and Marie Gendron.

The Ottawa NSC Fanfare regatta (Sailwave results for FAntastic Nepean FAll REgatta 2023 at Nepean Sailing Club 2023 (nsc.ca)) included a 505 fleet with 11 boats. (Fanfare also included an 11-boat 420 fleet, a 5-boat Albacore fleet, a 4-boat Fireball fleet, a 4-boat Martin 16 fleet, and a 7-boat Open Cat fleet.)
