2022 Opener Winners: Chris Sanderson-Lasers, and Bill Cote-Lightnings
Jun 25, 2022. After a very extended rainy and cool season, the sun finally shone on Salt Spring Island for the Opener, a nifty affair around Clamshell Island (with its strange construction project) and Fishermans Island. A light and shifty westerly provided plenty of snakes of ladders and a little drama during the 2 races.
Bill Cote on Azzuri beat Jeremy and Tara Smith on Green Boat in both races to win the Lightning Division.
Chris Sanderson had two 2nd place finishes and used his Really Old Old Guy status to top a 9 boat Laser field. Hart Buck (who interestingly has never won the Opener) came in 2nd and Don Martin was 3rd.
