ILCA North Americans Bring International Dinghy Sailing to the Bay

The ILCA North Americans, being held on the Cityfront by the St. Francis Yacht Club (StFYC) this weekend, bring an international field of 125 sailors to, once again, compete on the Bay. The StFYC is hosting four days of racing, delayed for a year due to the global pandemic, but finally commencing yesterday. Sailors from all points of the continent, plus several nations, are in attendance and competing in ILCA 4 (formerly known as Laser 4.7), ILCA 6 (Laser Radial) and ILCA 7 (Laser Standard) rigs.
