Royal Vancouver YC has introduced its inaugural Women’s Invitational Regatta! We’re inviting 10 teams from local Clubs to race in teams of three for the chance to be crowned the Women’s Champions of 2023.
The Women’s Invitational Regatta will take place September 23 and 24 in English Bay and all teams will race on RVYC’s fleet of Elliott 6m boats. “We’re so excited about the influence women have had on the sport of sailing and encourage women of all ages and experience to get involved”.
