Kona East Coast Championships 2012‏

This competition is being held in Trois-Rivières, which is about an hour and a half east of Montreal. Dominique Vallée seems to be a key organizer - from what I have read...

The event is to go over two(2) days starting on Saturday the 23rd of June 2012 and is to cover many classes - KONA, RSX, BIC293, Formula, open class, Lasers, etc. It is hosted by Club Multivoiles, which is at 12,751 Notre Dame Ouest, Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada.

For more information on the event : contact info@multivoiles or go to the website - Most of the information is in French and seems to be lacking.

Personally hope to go and take some pics. Will bring my Fanatic Ultra CAT and my two(2) race sails just in case. Unfortunately 9.5 is the limit on sails and mine is a 10-oh. That is one of the reasons I am trying to sell this amazing sail - MauiSails TR4 10-oh with matching 520 cm 100% carbon mast.

Will post more as I get in.

GOOD LUCK to all and I am sure FUN will be had :-)

Some information was available here, but in general found it hard to find info:

A chance of rain was announced, butt that did NOT happen. Instead there were North winds in the 12 to 15 knot range. The races started with the OPEN CLASS and there were more people and boat types than I anticipated. I took some photos as promised. Dominique Vallée, Sailboarder, CAN-1 {Sam Ireland ?} and others were present :-) For now I have just placed the photos - they are high def - so, clique em and check em out :-) In terms of boards, I saw many KONAs - obviously, Mistral OD/one-design, croconut - discussed later,  RS:X and BIC 293OD.

Clique ANY foto for the slide show :-)


Met Stephen Huszar ERIC Bouillet, who is sail number CAN-10. He was using a DIV2 board that I had never seen. I had to ask a number of times since I always understood "coconut'. It is actually a croconut from the "old days" and is similiar to a Lechner. Told him that my DIV2 was about my BIC Dufour Wing. He mentioned a facebook page called LOVEDIV2s Open Division II :-) Here is a shot or two(2) of his board.

Too many pictures? Would have liked to figure out how to do a photo album ... ie clique if you wanna see the pics ...
