The Bilge Rat Trophy – do you really want to win him?

The Regina Sailing Club Bilge Rat Regatta took place July 22, 2023, at the home of the Club at The Resort Village of Saskatchewan Beach on Last Mountain Lake.

The Regatta was an open event – one race, winner takes all!

Supported by Sask Sport, Redhead Equipment, and ASL Paving Ltd., the “Rat Race” was a multi-class race using the Portsmouth Yardstick, handicapping Laser, Tasar and Puffin boats. The Race Officer, Patricia Coons, masterfully managed the windward / leeward course which was shortened due to “light wind”, definitely an understatement.

Participants, Race volunteers and Spectators after the Race, enjoyed a DIY BBQ with burgers, baked beans, Caesar and potato salad galore.

A fun day for all, except maybe for The Bilge Rat, which is a vile creature, requiring incarceration in the Clubhouse. One competitor was heard to say: “I don’t want to win. I don’t want to touch that thing!”
