The sailboats, the designs and the sailings of Christian Lanctot


De Mezy Sailing Club 


DeMezy Water PlanI sail on the St-Lauwrence river in the south shore of Montreal. This is a narrow part of the river and the water may become sallow in some spots during dry summers. The advantage  of a narrow river is flat water in heavy winds. The disadvantage is not much place to carry chute when the wind blow hard from the shore. Worth mentionning is the accelerated wind strength on the channel between 2 islands.

The Club has a ramp launch which permits to dry sail my boat. I love it.

The club is ten minutes from my place. Typically, I woke up in the morning, take a look at the wind and meteo forecast and then choose the right time to go sailing. Oh yes, my friend Nikola will be there previoulsy with his Star, now with his Etchells so when can spend a few hours drag racing. Great.
