Glenmore Sailing Club sailor wins division in TransPac 2017

July 17, 2017 12:00 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Veteran Calgary sailor Christopher Lemke and crew won their division of the prestigious TransPac Yacht Race after 12 grinding days of sailing across the Pacific.  The multinational crew included Watch Captain Brad Lawson from Denver CO, Alan Carley from Victoria BC and Andrew Nelson from Tacoma, WA (left to right).

“We’re proud to represent Calgary and the Glenmore Sailing Club on the international stage”, says Lemke.  “Although we’re the smallest boat in the race, if the conditions are right we’re hoping to pull off a strong performance.  The boat is made for a downwind race like this.  It really takes off when we hoist that big spinnaker and start surfing those beautiful Trade Wind swells."
