Youth at NOD!

Youth at NODThis past weekend some of NSC’s Race Team and Sailing School staff participated in NOD! Everyone had a blast, despite the sometimes lackluster winds!

Congratulations to NSC’s very own Able Sail Coach Andrew Faurschou on his win at this year’s NSC One Design Regatta as well as and Spencer Klymyshyn and David Schram, members of the Youth Race Team, on their 3rd place finish! NSC had a great showing in the 420 fleet at NOD this year with 6 boats racing.

A big thanks to Natalie Tanczak and sailing school staff for rounding up the troops and helping get a fantastic group of racers out to this event.

The team is looking forward to a great year of racing!

Race Team: NSC Rocks the Race Course at Steerers and Four Sisters

Congratulations to the NSC youth Race Team on their amazing performance at the Port Credit Yacht Club last weekend! The team attended both the Steerers and the Four Sisters regattas last weekend, with three boats competing in the Laser Radial class, and one boat in the club 420 class. Racer Sam Lowery dominated at PCYC, bringing home a 1st place in the Radial class at Steerers, which he followed up with a 2nd place at Four Sisters. Teammates Natalie Tanczak and David Schramm also made a strong showing in the Radial fleet, consistently placing in the top 15 boats. On the 420 course, twin brothers Mitchell and Julian Lowery gave their other brother a run for his money, placing 4th at Steerers, and 9th at Four Sisters. We’re incredibly proud of what our athletes have accomplished, and we’re looking forward to many more regattas in the future! more…
