Chester Race Week 2021

Published on August 14th, 2021

Chester, NS (August 14, 2021) – The fourth day at Helly Hansen Chester Race Week ended with a lot less fog and lighter winds for the final day of racing.

Tony Thompson’s Laser 28 Apres Ski took the overall prize in the Inshore 1 fleet. “There was a bit of luck involved,” Thompson said. “Winning today, we had two boats we had to beat, so we made a point of covering them and we made sure they were behind us.”

Thompson credits that success to his crew, which included longtime friends Melanie Lambert, Ross Tulloch, Ian Dawson, and Alex Waters, as well as his daughter, Katelyn, and nine-year-old grandson, Declan, who both flew out from British Columbia to join the crew.

“Declan wasn’t contributing to the speed of the boat, but what we would do going up wind was we had him watch a boat for when they tacked, so we’d know when to tack. He took that chore to heart and would tell us what was going on. It was nice having a set of eyes with me on the back of the boat, too.”

Racing for 107 teams competing in 11 divisions was held August 11 to 14.
