Carol Craske was a key figure in getting the women’s sailing fleet going in Vernon and boats went out Thursday nights for the past few months to get time on the water and practice for the regatta.  The VYC series’ overall results show most of the boats that made it to the West Kelowna regatta and the boats that came out for the series this year.

In Kelowna, women have been racing in an annual Kelowna Yacht Club women’s racing series since the Women’s Nationals in 2007. Fourteen boats raced in the Kelowna Women’s racing series this year. Here are the overall results for 2016 KYC racing series.

The 2016 Okanagan Women’s Sailing Regatta first place boats:

In the PHRF Fleet, first place went to Corona Bob with Toni Clark, Sue Ruuska (on helm), and Robin Castle.
