From your Fleet Captain:
This year we have seen 22 boats out there for a high percentage of the Wendesday evening races.
Englsh Bay Scramble - Saturday August 16th
Tiddly Cove’s annual North Sails English Bay Scramble is the most interesting and popular sailboat race in Vancouver. The English Bay Scramble is a unique race where tacticians have free rein in how the marks are rounded, even which way to cross the start line. It delivers a unique combination of:
- the strategic challenges of a long distance race (varying sea states, winds, tides
- a legendary after-party! (BBQ, music and prizes)
- an open, low-intensity format, suitable to sailors of all experience levels (and budgets!)
After the race join all the skippers and crew for the free party, results, awards and more at our new venue, the Kits Yacht Club. Skippers, you're dinner ticket is included FREE at the door with your paid registration.
- Fully catered Burger Bar complete with salads, chips and more, including your first beer or wine for only $25. Cash only please.
- Bar opens immediately after the race until 11pm. Cash only please.
- Music and dancing.
- Results, awards and prizes.
- Bring your crew to the best after-party of the year.

Centre Bay Regatta - Labour Day Weekend
The M242 fleet is teaming up with the Star and Dragon fleets to have a wind up the two day regatta followed with a Saturday afternoon and evening dinner. The affair will be an after racing social that encourages skippers and crews to bring their spouses, partners and kids down for the after racing celebrations. Watcht for more e-mail blasts detailing the various events being organized by the three fleets. There will be great prizes for all the boats and this will be a new event for great fun and and again the M242 Fleet will winding up the day with another M242 FREE pitcher of beer for each boat competing. I have learned that to get elected for sure as the Fleet Captain in the M242 fleet FREE beer is the answer!
We look forward to see you on the water
