We are incredibly excited to announce details of our 2016 racing program! Our Quicker Crew training program remains the best way to start racing. To build on that introductory course, we are now offering 9 major racing events to our calendar (so far). AND, we are now accepting members for our new Race Team! Our racing events are open to anyone meeting the basic prerequisites (these vary by event)... but membership on our Team roster provides huge benefits for anyone wanting to race more than once this year!
We'll be hitting the water for at least nine major events, with the potential for more to be added to the calendar as race organizers announce more details. Our action packed calendar includes some classic races and all-time favourites amongst local sailors:
Southern Straits (Inshore Race)
Round Salt Spring Island Race
Round Bowen Island Race
Whidbey Island Race Week
English Bay Scramble
Howe Sound Regatta
Fraser River Lightship Race
Round The County
Details on each event can be found on our freshly published Racing Events page. There is also a sneak preview of the huge races on our horizon for 2017 and 2018. Have we mentioned that we're really excited about our racing program??
Annual membership on our Race Team provides 15% off registration for each event, and perhaps most importantly: early registration. The events we're competing in are hugely popular and we have limited space on board... Race Team membership gives you first dibs on every event, giving you the opportunity to sail in some of the very best races of the Pacific Northwest.
We have worked hard to build a Race Team program that provides real, quantifiable value for members. With a low annual membership rate of just $95 for ages 25+ (20% off for ages 16-25), your savings on racing event registrations mean that you break even after just 2 events (or just one if you join us for our marquis event of the year: Whidbey Island Race Week!). There's a whole list of other benefits and we will be continuing to develop the program throughout the racing season. Join us and make 2016 the most exciting year on the water yet!
