West Vancouver Yacht Club

West Van's warm summer evenings attract a large number of yachts to the Wednesday Evening series which runs weekly from May until late September.
This series strikes a perfect balance between competitive racing on the water and relaxed socializing in the Clubhouse afterwards.
Amendments to Sailing instructions 2.3 to eliminate floating ratings for Div.
5 for Summer and Fall series and to 12.1, 12.2 & 13.1 to allow for course option "B" which includes a reaching mark on lap 2.
Have you always wanted to compete in the Wednesday Evening Series but don't want to unload the boat every week of cruising gear?
Not sure you could muster up a crew of 7?
The Wednesday Evening Series offers a "Cruising" division that is open to everyone that wants to get out on the water and give it a try.
This is a "NFS" division (ie: no spinnaker) and no PHRF certificate is required.

Over 110 sailors under the age of 15 are competing.

Tiddly Cove Yacht Club: English Bay Scramble 2007

When: Saturday, Aug 18th Course: Round the four "corners" of the Bay, in any order/direction.
Thank you racers for making this the biggest (49 boats!) and most successfull English Bay Scramble ever..
The truly one-of-a-kind race on the VARC calendar.
As you know, we cross the start line in either direction, round the marks in any order and to either side, and cross the finish line in either direction.
Naturally, good sailing and smart tactics count...
but have you polished your crystal ball, too?
In past years, conditions have combined for ideal Scrambley race: Currents and winds were sufficiently ambiguous to send skippers all over the bay following the start.
It truly was as scrambley as we hoped it would be.
We invite you and your crew (as well as friends and family) to join us on the patio of the Maritime Museum for a Summer BBQ / Awards Ceremony.
The presentation will be made at the post-race barbecue at the Maritime Museum and the trophy will stay with the winning skipper for the next year.
The start/finish line will be at approximately 49°18' N, 123º12' W. The four marks' distances to the S/F line are now: - E - North of QB: 1.74nm - G - East of Point Grey Bell buoy: 2.4 nm - M - Kits barge buoy: 1.67 nm - F - Passage Island: 5.0 nm You will have to arrive on the scene, size up the probability of being able to sail all the marks, and then choose the best course!
Come out, have some fun, and GOOD LUCK!
