STAFF REPORT – The Basin Sailing Yacht Club held their annual ‘World Championships’ on Sunday April 25 at Boca Bay Powerhouse Lagoon, with local legend John Foster leading among many prestigious and worthy opponents.
The racing conditions were typical with choppy westerly breezes, and the heats were tight. The end result after eight races was Foster first, Sam Howe second and Henry Becton third.
Foster was also awarded with a first edition of “Wooden Boats for Blue Water Sailors” for his unwavering support to the group and his coaching advice.
The BSYC RC Laser Races, which are 1/4 size laser remote controlled sailboats. Only the rudder and sail can be controlled remotely, and these boats are quite fast and allow for thrilling races, with a lot of changing positions in any given race.
