Welcome back to the Regional Fleet - Dave Higgs

On November 17th, 2021 Cedric Carter of Vancouver, BC, donated Checkmate (hull #231, via a private transaction, 8th of the year) to Dave Higgs of Vancouver, BC., who is also a prior multiple NA’s winner on ex-Panique, #149.

With a white hull, Checkmate needed some TLC in the keel attachment area, so Dave offered to take the boat on and make the necessary repairs. Checkmate will stay at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club on a yard dolly. The boat measured in perfectly and came with a 2016 Measurement Certificate.


Congrats on the New Boat Cedric Carter!

On November 17th, 2021 Ray Parsons and Fabian Hope of Vancouver, BC, sold Scarlett (hull #57, listed May 15, 2021, for CDN$9,500) to Cedric Carter of Vancouver, BC, who used to own Checkmate (#231) for many years until some recent keel attachment damage occurred. With a red hull and excellent white underside, Scarlett will stay at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club on a yard dolly. The boat measured in perfectly with 72 pounds of Corrector Weights and came with a 2016 Measurement Certificate.
Scarlett has an excellent North Americans race record as follows: 3rd 2015, 1st 1997, 3rd 1996, 2nd 1995, 2nd 1994, 1st 1993.

Scarlett came with:
2 main sails, 2 jibs (one almost new), and 2 spinnakers
Yard dolly that doubles as a road trailer
2hp outboard engine and bracket
New (2019) Harken top and bottom furling units
Velocitek and TackTick
Congratulations on lining up an excellent replacement for Checkmate, Cedric!



In case you missed it...

Alex Fox wrote up a great regatta report from this year's Canadian Championships in Cowichan Bay, published in the October edition of Pacific Yachting magazine. Check out the full article HERE for a pretty great perspective on the racing. Thanks Alex!



(editor's note: this makes me look forward to next year's North American Championships in Nanaimo, nothing like big-fleet one design racing!)
