1988 North American DN Championship

January 01, 1988

The race was scheduled for January 30 and 31 on Hamilton Harbor, Ontario. Lack of sailable ice there resulted in a move to the Bay Of Quinte in Trenton Ontario. Three races for three fleets with a total of 104 sailors were sailed on Saturday. Conditions were wet and windy. Puddles on the ice slowed the boats much like snow drifts except you couldn't tell which ones were the deep ones. The wind was about 15 mph. By the following day the puddles had found their way through the ice resulting in some large drain holes on the course. In spite of light wind and fast ice, further racing was canceled for safety reasons.
