SinC Southern Straits Race

Apr 13, 2022

After a two-year COVID-19 hiatus, the West Vancouver Yacht Club will host the 52nd Southern Straits Sailing Race over the Easter weekend, with sailors once again hitting open water to navigate a course crisscrossing the Georgia Strait.

The event will feature short, medium and long course races ranging in length from 70 to 145 nautical miles, as sailors will test their skill while racing overnight in tricky spring conditions. There will also be an Inshore Course of approximately 20 miles, which will run during daylight hours this Good Friday. NOR and Registration are posted.

More info about the race, as well as a live yacht tracking tool, is available on the Southern Straits Sailing Race event webpage.
