The 2018 racing season is fast approaching and it's soon time to check over gear and equipment that didn't get replaced at Christmas.

If you haven't checked your boat in a while, remember freezing temperatures can break cockpit scuppers and even split masts.

A BIG THANK YOU TO ADRIENNE MENNELL and the Party Organizers!

The Mardi Gras theme was embraced by many, the food was delicious, the prizes were many and all well deserved, the music was right on and dancing carried many well past the witching hour.

There was a Party! Indeed

Adam Korbin and Katrina Mulberry -- It was noted that Kat came by her beads naturally. . . .

 

 

 

KITS YACHT CLUB'S LAWRANCE CUP

Point Grey Bell Buoy

The Lawrance Cup is a race to the Bell Buoy which starts at 1300 at the KYC dock. Beware of the rocks to the West of the floating dock at KYC.

Submit your elapsed time between the start and finish to the KYC Office before 1800 on race day. The elapsed time must be certified with the signature of the boat's skipper. No boats will be recorded as having finished after 1800.

M242s will be racing under One-Design rules. Motors are not required on the back of the boat.

There are eight M242s committed to race so far.

ROYAL VICTORIA YACHT CLUB'S THERMOPYLAE REGATTA

October 14-15, 2017

Registration information here

Named after the famous clipper tea ship, Thermopylae is a big end of season keelboat and one-design regatta.

It includes both distance racing and around the buoy racing in the waters off Oak Bay and Victoria.

 


 

The California Yacht Club always manages an excellent regatta and it is a treat for northern sailors to enjoy the competition and hospitality of the Marina del Rey Fleet.

Unfortunately, no Canadian or Orcas Island team has ventured south to participate this year. There were boats available for charter but definite interest was not expressed early enough and promotion of their availability wasn't timely to encourage take up.  We should learn from this to promote inter-fleet competition.
