From Squamish, we trucked back down to Cascade Locks in the Columbia River Gorge for 29'er Nationals. We used to live in the Gorge so while the kids raced, we were all over the place.

Great regatta out of Cabrillo Beach YC in San Pedro. The west coast c420 fleet is very healthy. Henry raced with Ben Foox and Simon raced with Jasper Reid.
Early June out of Richmond Yacht Club, this was a windy regatta! Boegers were trying out new things... Simon in a laser and Henry crewing for Jason in Club 420 (actually they switched off.)
