Race Team Update

The NSC Race Team recently travelled to Sarnia, Ontario for the annual Sailfest Regatta. Sailors, Natalie Tanczak and Camden Sutherland participated in the Friday training day and the weekend regatta. Natalie Tanczak arrived on Tuesday morning in order to train alongside the Ontario Sailing Team. Overall the wind varied, but for the actual regatta the conditions were light and shifty. The NSC racers found themselves fighting the extremely strong current, throughout they raced 6 races. Natalie finished 6th overall and won an award for Top Female, while Camden finished 11th overall out of 32 boats.
