Excerpt from Canadian Seaspray Newsletter

The Newell Sailing Club will host a very non-typical regatta at our regular time frame July 11 and 12th 2020.  It will still be called the "Prairie Wind" Regatta however it will be a "bring your own food and beverages" event. There will be some (possibly 10 or more) on site tent camping spaces available.  Hotels and other camping are available in the area as well as there may be space left in Kinbrook Island Campground as well.  You should contact John by phone (number on the notice of race located in files on the Regattas page) to let him know you will be attending so that we can follow government regulations in regards to our current viral situation.  At the moment the club hall and other buildings on the club's grounds will be off limits (this may be subject to change).  The park bathrooms will be available for public use.   The club will follow the current health regulations and expect members, competitors and guests to follow all mandated requirements. 

The Regatta became a general sailing weekend with about 16 sailboats doing on the water activities.  All health regulations were adhered to.  Hopefully 2021 will a more normal year.
