Robert Elliott, President of LYRA, gave full marks to the Port Credit Yacht Club for the excellent race management, great food, fine entertainment, and wonderful weather for the event. His plan for next year is to bring more young people out to race at LYRA 2012 at the Oswego Yacht Club - home of the wildest seas on the lake.
This regatta was also the Canadian IRC Championships. The IRC North Americans will be held in August at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club.
Congratulations to all the winners, which can be found at: http://lyra-2011.com/Info/Results.htm#1
