Results from the fall classic we all love… with our Quebec Champ in the top 5! Congrats.
1979 Tillotson Pearson J24
Sail number 1734
-2 sets of sails – one set of old North Sails (main and genoa) and one set of Quantum that we currently race with (also with Doyle spinnaker and storm sail)
-It does have a newer mast (1984) and standing rigging.
-Maxibraid genoa sheets and Maffioli swiftcord spinnaker sheets both changed in 2012
-The hull itself is the reason we bought the boat in the first place; it’s got no osmosis or blistering and is very fair. The keel was faired before we bought the boat, but is in good shape. We’ve put a bunch of work into it (including new barrier coat this month) to slow the inevitable blistering that comes along with owning a J24.
-Trailer had the wiring re-done right before we bought it and lights replaced with LED’s as well as an all black paint job
+ MERCURY 5.5 HP engine.
Price: 5950 $

With one shifty, tough race to decide it all, we were all pleased for the winners of the second and final regatta of the Quebec Series:1st – François Lanouette, Reactor
2nd – Lee Grant, PeaceMaker
3rd – Stephan Blais, Premature Grey
Good news! As the 2nd-largest district in Canada we will get eight spots for the 2017 Worlds in Port-Credit. This means the top eight boats in the Quebec Series will qualify.
As well, there are five spots going to the top non-qualified Canadian boats at the NAs, so there are more chances to win!
Another key note – there is a special spot for a YOUTH or FEMALE team – if you or someone you know would be interested, I think the process there would be to propose the team to the CJCA and then get picked.
