    The main goal of cycling players through positions is to teach them how to play the right way.

    In sailing, a skipper who knows the foredeck can help their crew do their job at the other end of the boat.

    Cross training between sports and among positions on a boat is a good thing.

    It was an historic three days of racing at Cowichan Bay. It was an honor to have Martin Herbert racing with crew Greg Slakov. Martin and brother Graham, won the first Fireball Canadian Championship in 1965 and then also in '67, '68, '69 and 1972. Sailing in his cherished home built boat, KC 1205, he captured two 3rd's and a 4th, finishing in seventh, proving he still competes with skill and cunning. Bob Lewis, winner in 1973 and 1976, sailing with Francis Thompson, finished 5th overall with two seconds on the final day. Not bad for someone not having been in a fireball for more than 25 years. Not wanting to miss out on the "old timer's" reunion, Matt Law decided to come and was rewarded with 4th overall and 1st in the Classic boat division. Another multiple past winner, Rupert Holmes-Smith, was also in attendance but in an official capacity as PRO.

    It was a unique and wonderful event to have 6 past winners including, Ken Tichkowsky, Robert Thompson, Jamie Cox and Debbie Kirkby all competing.

    Thank you to all that made the effort to attend and contribute to a truly memorable regatta!
