2023 Canadian 2.4mR Championship
The 2023 Canadian 2.4mR Championship was held September 22-24 at The National Yacht Club in Toronto, Ontario. The fleet of 26 boats was the largest ever at a Canadian 2.4mR National Championship and attracted entries from Puerto Rico, United States as well as British Columbia, Quebec and Ontario.
Eight races were held over three days however one race was not scored due to Race Committee error. Conditions were perfect under sunny skies with easterly winds ranging from 6 to 20 knots. The final had especially fine wind and waves allowing for exciting surfing on the downwind legs.
In the end Jeff Linton from Davis Island Florida gave everyone a lesson winning six of the seven races and placing second in the other. In second place was Rudy Trejo of Chicago IL. Third Place went to Bruce Millar of Victoria British Columbia.

Another Successful Pacific Coast Championship
Victoria’s 2.4 Fleet from Royal Victoria YC hosted the 2023 Pacific Coast Championship Regatta September 8 to 10 in beautiful Cadboro Bay.
Fifteen 2.4mRs registered for this warm September weekend including sailors Peter Wood from Ottawa, as well as Jeff Reinhold and his ‘new to the 2.4mR’ friends, Jonathan Reichhold and Alex Wigley from Seattle.
After a foggy practice day on Friday, we had clear skies with light, tricky SW breezes on both Saturday and Sunday for a total of nine races. Racing was competitive and tight with more than a few photo finishes.
Congratulations to Victoria’s Bob Britten who won First Place. Bruce Millar won Second Place followed closely by Louise Anstey in Third Place. Quote of the weekend “Bob was good on Saturday, and brilliant on Sunday.”
