The first regatta of the 2015 racing season presented an interesting race day, the morning race was wild and not for the faint of heart, large waves and high winds with only four boats participating. For the afternoon race, once everyone’s stomachs had time to settle, three boats competed but the sailing was much more enjoyable, a great way to get back into to the variable wind conditions of Cold Lake!

Charlie Callaghan Regatta

From it’s inception the Cold Lake Sailing Club had the benefit, for almost ten years, of service and dedication from Charlie Callaghan, committee boat operator. A man of infinite patience with a great sense of humor, Charlie was a fixture in our club, providing accurate timings and race starts throughout the seasons.Tragically, in January 2000, Charlie Callaghan, retired RCAF service member and civil servant, passed away. He left a tremendous hole within the local sailing group, not only for his dedication to the committee boat and race coordination, but also for the friendship and great enthusiasm he brought to the members.

To commemorate Charlie, the Cold Lake Sailing Club instituted a yearly Memorial Regatta. In 2002 it was decided that the regatta would be a pursuit race. In a departure from the traditional mass starts, a pursuit race features a staggered start, in accordance with individual boat handicaps. The slower boats start the race first, with the faster, racer boats in pursuit. In theory, all boats will cross the finish line at the same time.

In a fitting nod to Charlie the race does not require a timekeeper!
