Regatta set for May 10
On April 21, five boats from the Kootenay Lake Sailing Association met 25 students from Bordeaux, France and their Nelson hosts at the Prestige Inn marina and introduced them to spring sailboat racing.
The students were in Nelson for two weeks and participated in a number of local activities.
The sailing trip was to Troupe Point and back in five- to 10-kilometre winds which provided a few exciting moments for some who had not sailed before.
The sailing association will be holding its first major regatta of the year, The Nelson Cup, on May 10 and 11 in Nelson with the start off of the end of the Hall Street wharf at 11 a.m. on May 10.
