The Gulf Islands Secondary Improv show at ArtSpring was a classic with GISS Seniors (heading to Ottawa for the Nationals for the 5th time in 10 years) and right behind, the surprising Juniors.
During the show a number of Improv ‘alumni’ were asked to leave their audience seats to join in the hilarity. So quick thinking, so entertaining. Well done GISS Improv; past and present.

A race? Well, yes actually. Forty-five minutes into the race. The thing with sailboats is they come in all shapes, sizes and speed. An attempt to level the playing field is made via the PHRF-BC handicap. Each similarly equipped, same design boat should sail like any other and should have the same handicap.
AND, with different types of boats having different handicaps, the idea is that everyone—in theory—will finish equally. Everyone will be tied for first as long as each boat sails to its handicap.
And without any external variables (like wind direction, speed, and consistency, as well as current, tides, hull condition, sail condition, crew skill, etc) that would happen.
So about 1/4 of the way through the race, the Laser above was sailing in the middle of the group, but could be in the lead or at the end (if the race were to end here) on handicap corrected time.

This was the Bas Cobanli Memorial Race, an annual club race. Bas was a long time and well respected sailor and club member who died twenty years ago. Jill Cobanli was there to say a few words and wish everyone a great race. Roger Kibble is revealing the course at the skipper’s meeting, minutes before the start:
