Finding victories at Chester Race Week

Published on August 13th, 2021

Chester, NS (August 13, 2021) – Jamie Moye has raced in Chester Race Week since he was a kid, including several times as skipper of his Ontario 32, Antares. He’s back for 2021, the first time since 2016.

And today was the first time he’s placed higher than third as Antares and its crew placed second on the third day of racing, doing so in the non-spinnaker in the Distance 4 fleet.

“Today was wonderful,” Moye said. “It started slow, so that was worrisome. There wasn’t much wind, but then the wind filled in and we had the best start of the week.”

Moye’s wife and son are among his crew. They both have sailing experience, but not much racing experience.

“As a team, they’re working wonderfully, which they don’t always do at home,” Moye joked.

On Days 1 and 2, Moye said he and his crew were doing so well, but lost the wind on the last leg of the race.

“The wind died on us before it died on everyone else,” Moye said. “We could see the rest of the fleet getting farther and farther away.”

So, Moye said he has one wish for Day 4, the final day of racing.

“I’d love to see more wind,” he said.

Many of the traditional ceremonies for this year’s event have been tweaked a bit. That includes the award ceremonies, which are presented via Facebook live and not in person because of COVID-19 restrictions. Still, some of the traditions remain the same. Thirty-five trophies will be handed out to winners, including the Allen Cup, which dates back to 1902, when Chester Yacht Club was incorporated. You can read about the trophies here.

Racing for 107 teams competing in 11 divisions is planned for August 11 to 14.
