Chester Race Week Sees Strongest Race Participation in Years
Chester Race Week (CRW), Canada’s largest keelboat race, came to a close after four days of racing around Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia on August 19.
With 125 boats sailing 97 races in 12 separate classes, 2023’s CRW boasted registry numbers not seen in over half a decade or more.
The on-water chair for the annual regatta, Patricia Nelder, said this year’s CRW saw yet another year of exciting races, good entertainment and happiness from both the spectators and sailors.
