After two days of rain the sunshine is very welcoming at the Sail West Regatta at the Wabamun sailing club located about one hour west of Edmonton.
With 86 registered athletes from Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta there are entries in the laser, radial, 4.7, C420, 2.4, 29er, and Optimist classes.
Winds were very light for the practice race but picked up to 10-15 knots with 1 metre waves for four races held on Saturday.
Races continue today, August 5 and tomorrow, August 6.
Day two of racing with only one race and then no wind so the kids had fun on the Lilly pad with plenty of sun and warm temperatures!!

PRO Peter van Muyden pulled off four great races today in 6-10 knot breezes for a total of 9 races for all classes.
