Captain’s Log: Canadian Nick Jacko

“There was no breeze for the final 2 days of the event.  We saw some ribbons of breeze come in but die off almost as quickly.  We were in and out of the harbour a few times over this period as the race committee was hopeful that something would materialize.  It obviously didn’t.  Rossi sailed a strong series to claim 3rd place and was not challenged for the Pan am spot by either the Puerto Rican entry or by the other eligible Canadian boat (my team was not eligible since I did not enter with an all-Canadian crew and never do at the Midwinters). All in all it was a great event – the RC did the best they could on the water with the conditions that were presented.  The off-water hospitality exceeded the normal high standards that DIYC sets year after year.  There was plenty of food and beverage to keep all of us entertained for the 5 days of the event.”
