The Coast’s Favourite Regatta
The annual Round Saltspring Race May 19 – 21, and has evolved over 43 years into a whole weekend of celebrations, and has been called “the best regatta on the coast” by participants. Up to 120 boats participate in the Saturday race around the island, from maxi-boats to small club racers. By Friday night the Club docks are alive with activity as boats raft together, flags flying. Because the course offers unique challenges such as tidal currents and variable conditions, it’s a great test of tactics, seamanship, navigation and sailing ability. From year to year, it can be anyone’s race to win.
