Hey Club members - ever wanted to learn how to run a race?  Ever wanted to anchor your boat and have a front row seat to the races?  Here is your chance!

We are looking for volunteers with and without boats who may be interested in helping make our summer race series - TCYC Summer Shorts happen.  If you want to volunteer but dont have crew, we can find people to help you and if you want to help but dont have a boat we can get you on one!

What needs to be done each week?  The Race Committee (RC) will inflate the provided marks and drag them out into English Bay and anchor them to set the course. This means leaving the dock at a time chosen by the Skipper but generally about 5 PM.  The RC will anchor a floating flag as one end of the start line and themselves as the other.  RC will record the boats taking part and sound horns and raise and lower flags at prescribed intervals to start the races beginning at 6 PM sharp.  RC will record the exact start time and then as boats complete the course record the exact time of their finish.  RC will then provide this data to the Fleet Captain who will score the race. Then after retrieving marks its off to the club or bar for beverages and results!

Sounds like fun eh?!

Contact our Fleet Captain and let him know what date or dates you would like to get involved.  Do it soon!
