Record numbers for CORK Fall Regatta

Published on September 22nd, 2019

The final regatta of CORK’s 50th celebration year saw a record 264 athletes travel to Portsmouth Olympic Harbor for the CORK Fall Regatta on September 21-22 in Kingston, Ontario.

The weather forecast was predicting temperature in the 70s and good wind for the final regatta of the year, attracting many returning athletes, coaches, families and volunteers from across Ontario, Quebec, and as far away as Nova Scotia, the United States, and Mexico.

Warm but light winds got racing started on day one while the breeze picked up on day two as 12 knots from the SSW continued throughout the day with gusts in the higher teens. The sun popped out in the afternoon capping off the day with the heat and humidity of a typical summer afternoon with fabulous freshwater conditions.

There was plenty of action out on the water over the two day regatta with five races for the Laser 4.7, Optimist, and Radial fleets, six races for both the C420 and Laser Standard fleet while the 29ers knocked out 10 races and the 49er and 49er FX fleets finished the regatta with 12 races each.
